Co-Founders of South Jersey Breastfeeding & The Village
Clinical Philosophy and Approach
While exclusive breastfeeding is not always the goal and/or attainable we will work as a member of your healthcare team to help you reach YOUR goals. We will work with you to rule out latch technique and positioning issues while working to uncover underlying barriers to achieve full function.
As a team we strive to integrate research based evidence with clinical expertise, patient preferences and values.
Our clinicians are dedicated to expanding their skills and knowledge through continuing education to assist breastfeeding families. We believe breastfeeding is a marker of overall health and function, we continue to seek out additional courses and trainings in topics such as: gut health (microbiome/nutrition), oral habilitation, reproductive and social justice and bodywork (structure and function).
