Lactaion Services


Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world, so why can't we expect it to just go naturally?

Well, there are many things that play into how easily breastfeeding goes for you. The information you have beforehand can make a very big difference. Beyond information, having quality support while you're getting your nursing relationship established may be the most important thing of all.

Jessica is happy to offer both. Having experienced those early struggles herself, she has a special understanding of the emotions that accompany new mothering. Jessica has six years in lactation practice, including being an IBCLC (Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant), the highest level of certification possible in lactation.

Blissful Births offers private breastfeeding classes, as well as personal (one on one) lactation consulting. 

Please contact Jessica, at jessica.altemara@gmail.com for help in figuring out what services will best suit your needs.
