Breastfeeding, while instinctual and natural, doesn’t always run smoothly for everyone. At Discover Birth we want to ensure that you feel equipped with knowledge, tools, and confidence before your baby arrives. We also want you to feel supported if you are experiencing feeding challenges after your little one is born.
We can help BEFORE or AFTER baby arrives
During your private prenatal consultation we will go over information to get you off to the best start possible. We will talk about breastfeeding basics including latching, feeding management, and how to know your baby is getting enough. Your personal history and any major questions or concerns will also be discussed. At your private postnatal consultation we will discuss the breastfeeding concerns that you are working through, go over a brief health history of you and your infant, observe a feeding, and create a plan to ensure things move in the right direction for you. This visit may also include an acupuncture session for you (mom) to help promote relaxation and reduce any muscle tension, and promote milk flow and supply if those are concerns you are working through.

“I had the opportunity to meet one of the Discover Birth’s doula (Stefanie) and discuss the main doubts and issues we have been facing with our newborn. Being first-time parents, all the tips and advice worked as magic with our little baby and we are really grateful for all the help! Thank you Discover Birth (especially Stefanie)”, RenataRenata
“We were so grateful to have Stefanie’s help during the first few months of our twins’ lives. We were amazed at how she was able to quickly calm our newborns down and help them sleep through the night. She also provided helpful advice and patiently listened to my concerns as a new mother. Thank you, Stefanie, for all the ways you cared for our family. We hope to stay in touch as the kids get older.”, MelissaMelissa
“Thank you for sending Kiren as our Doula. She was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! and we would not have been able to do what we did without her. Your service has been wonderful and are truly grateful for having reached out to you for you and your team’s support during the most precious moment of our lives. I will be sure to refer all my friends and family to your Doula services in the future :)”, LienLien
