A little about our care...

Hello and Welcome!! 

We are registered Midwives and Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) with a combined 30 years of experience working with new families. Because we are registered midwives, our lactation consulting services are covered by MSP up til 6 weeks postpartum. We work both virtually and in person either by home visit or in clinic. 

We're here to help you create a feeding plan that works for you and your family. W strive to help all families to identify and meet their goals in a supportive and realistic way, that is inclusive of your own mental health and lifestyle. Things we commonly help with include:
 

  • slow or low weight gain for baby

  • low milk supply

  • nipple pain and latch issues

  • mental health resources and postpartum depression/anxiety

  • assessing infant tongue function and sucking skills

  • mastitis, yeast infection, milk blebs, blocked ducts

  • pump use and flange fitting

  • ergonomics, positions for feeding, paced bottle feeding

  • breast or chest refusal

  • Individualized feeding care plan for babies

  • Nipple Shield use or weaning off

  • Returning home from the NICU or extra support while in the NICU at RCH

           We look forward to meeting you soon!
                           Sincerely, 

                                                           Carlie and Candace

Testimonials

“I really appreciated Carlie’s gentle  approach and how she gave me manageable and realistic things to work on. On top of the in-person support, she gave me some online resources and videos that were relevant to my situation and I felt like that was also key to making improvements at home. We were successful in getting baby girl slowly off the nipple shield as well as some getting some help with side lying position to combat a fast let down. Thank you so much!!”
