You're experiencing anxiety around breast/chest or bottle feeding your baby. Despite things "going well" you're panicked about whether baby is eating enough or if you're doing this right. Perhaps baby had an initial weight loss and you're scared it will happen again. Regardless of why, feeding your baby is distressing and you'd like support to get to a place where you enjoy feeding baby.

FEEDING ANXIETY

Breast Milk Pump

You had big plans of pumping and storing milk but when you pump you aren't seeing much come out, or you just don't know where to begin.

You didn't physically carry your infant but you'd like to try your hand at breast/chestfeeding your new baby (YES it's possible). This works even better if we start working on this before baby arrives.

Nipple pain

Engorgement

Your milk has come in fast and furious and you're uncomfortable. You're feeding baby often, pumping or hand expressing but nothing seems to be relieving the engorgement.

Baby Breastfeeding

Something just doesn't feel right. You wince before baby latches, when baby starts sucking it stings and you have some damaged tissue at the nipple.

Some infants pull off or cry at the breast/chest for a variety of reasons. These can include: low milk supply (baby gets frustrated), infant discomfort, overactive let-down, misread hunger cues, tongue tie, etc. Baby isn't refusing YOU, they're just having a hard time organizing the new skill of breast/chestfeeding. Let's figure this out.

She keeps it real and sees the whole picture

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Azura. I reached out to her when I was pregnant with my second, hoping for a better breast feeding experience this time around. We had an amazing one on one session where we talked about my specific questions and concerns, and she followed up with a detailed, personalized feeding plan. It was so comprehensive, I refer to it constantly!

Azura is not like any of the other LC’s I have worked with before (and there were many) - she has the most tender and supportive bedside manner, no shaming, no guilt, just judgment-free support to achieve my desired feeding experience. She keeps it real and sees the whole picture. She was so generous with her time answering my follow up questions by text. I would recommend Azura to all of my nearest and dearest.
