Breastfeeding Support

Nursing

I am an IBCLC with more than 120 hours of lactation specific education (read more about what an IBCLC is: Impact of Breastfeeding). Below you will find details on the different ways in which I can support you.

Nursing Counseling

A private assessment for you and your baby to determine the best way to support your continued journey in nursing! As breastfeeding and baby are constantly changing, concerns can pop up. After a full history, I will observe you nursing and support you with comfortable positioning and latch. I will gather information to put together an effective plan that you will find sustainable.

  • Issues related to tongue and/or lip ties

  • Recurrent plugged ducts, mastitis

I just want to say how invaluable your help has been for both M and me. We had seen many “experts” before you and none of them were able to figure out what was going on for her. And yet, within the first 2 minutes of your first visit, you nailed the issue right away! I feel like a whole new mother now – I am much more relaxed, and can confidently and enjoyably feed my baby, and watch her enjoy breastfeeding! Thank you again for everything. You are amazing at what you do!

Baby and I are both doing great with no shield! I couldn’t be happier that we saw you. Your advice saved us! I feel like I’m learning about a whole new baby because he isn’t super gassy and he is happy. Thank You!

Roxanna truly puts mom and baby first. She is so easy to talk to and always makes herself available to her clients. She’s kind and generous and is so incredibly knowledgeable on the topic of breastfeeding. She knows what questions to ask to cover all the bases at every session. And, she’s extremely thorough in how she addresses your concerns both during and after a visit. She always makes sure I leave the conversation feeling empowered with the knowledge I need to make the breastfeeding relationship with my baby the best it can be. You can’t ask for more than that in an LC. Our family is so blessed to work with Roxanna.

Roxanna was extremely friendly and easy to talk to. She was non-judgemental and offered wonderful advice. She heard out all of our concerns and was able to offer her support for whatever we needed. I would very highly recommend her.

I really want to thank you again for everything, I was very close to giving up on breastfeeding. This is pretty much the first time I have nursed and not felt any pain, so thank you!!
