"I love to hear a mother's sigh of relief when baby finally latches on well and she can relax and enjoy breastfeeding, sometimes for the first  time. If breastfeeding is painful or uncomfortable there is a cause and  a solution. Let's figure it out together." ~Beth

In-Home Lactation Consultation

image33

Let's get you and baby off to a fantastic start. I encourage you to schedule your initial visit within the first week. Whether this is your first or your fifth baby, there are always adjustments to having a new baby. I can help by easing your worries about breastfeeding and ensure that the two of you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying each other. Breastfeeding can be challenging at times but you do not have to work through it alone.  During this visit, we will discuss your breastfeeding goals and evaluate your breastfeeding experience thus far. Your past medical and pregnancy history will be reviewed and breast and oral exam included so that we can best tailor our plan to meet your personal breastfeeding goals. We will also go over positioning and latching techniques to see what works best for you and baby.

The Phoenix Birth Community is Amazing!

Mandy W.

Beth was amazing! We were having a terrible time nursing and I was a  mess! I called her she literally came to my house the next day! Took all  the pressure off! Found an undiagnosed tongue and lip tie in my little  one and help us through that process! She also introduced us to body  therapy and breastfeeding clinic(which was also AMAZING)! I would 100%  recommend her to anyone who is struggling or anyone who wants to  breastfeed! Wonderful experience!!

Beth is Amazing! Informative, knowledgeable, educated, and SO supportive. Breastfeeding for me as a first time mother was a challenge, I felt defeated and I  didn't have a woman's support behind me. Beth is encouraging and  provides tips, tricks, resources to help ease the anxiety of feeding. The  love and support Beth provides is what carries me through on a daily  basis. She reminds me that my strength and hard work is enough for my  little one. I highly recommend TLC Lactation, if you need help with all  things breastfeeding. Thank you Beth for your love, support, and most importantly patience with me!!

Jamie D.

Beth is great! She's knowledgeable, patient, and flexible with schedule.  We had trouble from the start with my daughter latching due to tongue  and lip ties. We had actually had the tongue tie procedure done and were  still having a ton a feeding issues by the time we first met with Beth.  At this time we were under the impression that the tongue tie was  resolved and the Dr we were seeing did not recommend we get the lip tie  released. Beth noticed right away that my daughter didn't have the  movement that she needed to resolve the feeding issues and recommend we  get a second opinion. We did and ended up having to do a revision as  well as the lip release. My daughters feeding improved greatly after  that.

Beth and I are both labor and delivery nurses and board certified lactation consultants.
I highly recommend TLC Lactation consulting, you will be very well taken care of.

Andrea E.

Beth helped us when my son wasn't eating effectively, which was hindering his weight gain. She helped us get the right hold for him and got us where we needed to be. She had us do exercises to help him strengthen his tongue. She is very personable, professional, and knowledgeable.

Chelsea L.

The beginning days with a new born are so scary and confusing,  especially if you're trying to breastfeed. Luckily there are wonderful  people like Beth who can come to you and help you through it.
Beth is very kind and very informative. Everything you need in someone who is helping you feed your baby.
