Breast pumping consultation

Express yourself and learn to love pumping your breastmilk.

Whether you are pregnant, learning about which pump to buy, or you have a baby and are ready to pump, you can learn about pump, fitting, and expressing your breastmilk in a way that fits your lifestyle, and with appropriate production. And, you will fall in love with pumping.

You may be thinking about:

  • Harvesting or collecting colostrum while you are pregnant
  • Learning how to hand express your milk (with no pump)
  • Buying a new pump and knowing its pros and cons, before ordering one.
  • Unboxing your pump, assembling and using it safely the first time.
  • Sizing your flanges for comfort and production
  • Pumping to supplement your baby who is low weight gain or failure to thrive
  • Building a personal milk stash for 'Me' time, baby's daddy, and last minute needs.
  • Pumping for Exclusive Breastmilk Feeding. (EBF)
  • Preparing for a return to work
  • Wondering about NYS and Federal Breastmilk Pumping Protection Laws.

You can easily hurt yourself with your breast pump.

Too much suction, too fast a pace, flanges that are too big or too small, long sessions, and badly designed (cheap) pumps can all hurt you. And set you back.

  • Too little pumping and you won't stimulate or collect enough milk.
  • Too much pumping and you might create a burdensome Boob Monster supply.

My son was born with a lip and tongue time, and even after his procedure, nursing was extremely painful. I would cry and clench my fists during every feeding, staring at the timer until 20 minutes were up so I could give myself permission to unlatch my son. Feeding him was a huge burden and caused me a great deal of anxiety because of how much it hurt.

I worked with Donna during the first few months of my son's life. I went from dreading nursing, to nursing on demand thanks to her support.
