Lactation SUPPORT FROM enlightened mama’s ibclcs
An IBCLC (Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant) is highly trained in managing any issues you may have while breastfeeding–from positioning and latching techniques, to difficulties such as sore nipples, tongue tie, lip tie, supply concerns, pre-term babies, mastitis, thrush, plugged ducts, breastfeeding after reduction, multiples, and more- we’ve got you covered! We pride ourselves in being “breast detectives,” often solving the mysteries and problems that others have not been able to. In addition being lactation consultants, we are also birth doulas, so understand the deep emotional relationship between the family and the feeding experience.
Consultations are available as a 1-hour initial or a 30-minute follow-up appointment options at Minnesota Birth Center’s St. Paul location beginning March 21st, 2016. Please call 651-689-3988 or 612-545-5311 to schedule an appointment. MBC accepts the insurance plans listed here.
