Debra Day, Midwife, IBCLC

CALL ME ...

After a lifetime career as a Midwife I am now "retiring" to focus solely on Lactation Consulting. 

I believe, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, that Mother's breast milk is the perfect food for her Baby.  


Let's work together to:

  •  prepare for your birth and breastfeeding through education.
  • choose a maternity care provider that shares your breastfeeding goals. 
  •  create a birth and breastfeeding support plan to inform your care provider and the hospital or birth center staff of your desires and goals for feeding your baby. This is an important step to insure that breastfeeding is a successful, positive experience right from the start.

I offer:

  •  lactation consulting while you're in the hospital. Early care from an LC has been shown to influence breastfeeding success.
  • lactation consultations in your home. A visit after you return home from the hospital can prevent and solve breastfeeding difficulties.
  • lactation consultation at my office. Come on in to my office for one on one or group breastfeeding support.
  • weight checks. Weighing your baby before and after a feeding can ease your concern, "is my baby getting enough milk."

WHAT IS A MIDWIFE?

A Midwife is an expert in pregnancy, labor, and birth. She cares for both mother and baby after the baby is born, educating families about the benefits of breastfeeding.

Midwives help mothers and babies initiate breastfeeding in the golden hour after birth. Lactation consulting is a routine part of a midwife's care.
