Our Practice

Breastfeeding Resources is a medical specialty practice focused on mothers and babies.

Our job

We’re here to support families on their various breastfeeding journeys. Each family has its own individual path. We’re not here to chart your path, that’s yours to do. What we can do is offer information, support, and inspiration to those of you just beginning your journey, and offer medical expertise and clinical experience to any of you who’ve run into an unexpected bump in the road.

Breastfeeding should not be such a big deal! Let’s keep it simple.

Breastfeeding is just a means to an end, a way to parent, a way to feed, a way to get started in that precious and wonderful relationship with your baby.

There’s no one right way.

Every mother-baby pair is different. You and your baby will have your own way.

Breastfeeding should make your life easier.

If feeding your baby is getting in your way, interfering with the time you could be enjoying your baby, or complicating rather than simplifying your life, we want to help.

How we work

We do NOT do any primary care. You keep your own primary care physician and ob/gyn or midwife, as well as your baby’s pediatrician or other health care provider.

Office consults

Breastfeeding is a two-person process. It takes two people, both mother and baby, to make it work, so we need to spend time with both of you. We take the time to listen, often as much as two hours at the first visit, so we can understand your unique situation, examine both of you, and work with you to evaluate and resolve the challenges you may face.

We prefer to work in person, so we can really see what’s going on.  We do occasionally do phone consults, but the phone can’t give us as much information as meeting in person. So phone consults can actually postpone and delay the service you need.

We are covered by most insurance companies.

If your insurance requires a referral, we will usually need referrals for both you and you baby. If your insurance requires co-pays, we will usually collect two co-pays, unless of course we really only examined and treated one of you. For further information, see the Insurance menu item.

If you do not have insurance, or your insurance does not cover us, we will do what we can to keep finances from getting in the way of the care you need. See the insurance page, and call us for more info.

When you have questions…

Telephone access

We are available through our answering service 24/7 and encourage you to call any time you are worried. We always offer telephone advice to help you through until we can see you. See the Appointments menu item for more info.

Limited email access

We prefer you contact us by phone with your questions, so we can ask questions to help us explore your situation together. We cannot  monitor email closely.  Please limit email to completely non-urgent situations, and do include a phone number, in case we want to reach you quickly or find out more.


We set aside at least an hour and a half for most appointments. If you need to cancel, remember that there are other families who would love to have your spot. So please try to give us 24 hours notice, so that the time we had allocated for you can be given to another family.
