Infant Feeding Specialists

Nourshing your baby with skilled support.

When life feels complicated, finding the support you need-- all in one place -- can feel like a breath of fresh air. When you hire NorCal Doulas, we have trained and certified Infant Feeding Specialists on-call and available who can help you navigate your feeding journey with ease.

No matter how you choose to feed your baby, our Infant Feeding Specialists are there to support you as an ongoing source of information. We bridge the gap between doula support and immediate access to a lactation consultant (IBCLC) and are trained to assist + develop individualized feeding plans based on your family’s unique needs.

Unbiased support:

  • We are here to support you however that journey unfolds; sometimes it looks like a schedule outlining your chestfeeding/bottlefeeding plan and sometimes it looks like learning how to supplement with formula (which one?!) for when you head back to the virtual office.
  • How ever the path evolves, and whatever you chose, we work closely with you to provide unbiased information in the comfort of your own home on all things infant feeding.

Feed your baby with confidence:

  • Our IFS professionals can help you create your infant feeding plan, explore your feeding options, and implement any changes to your plan if you come across something that isn’t quite working for the parent-child dyad.
  • We’ll be there to help guide you through those first few days of newborn feeding so you can create the confident, calm, and nourished environment you desire.

The Norcal Infant Feeding Experience:

We know that everyone’s parenting style is different; our IFS professionals help identify your goals, knowing that sometimes the circumstances may change. We’ve got you! Adjustments can be made, goals can be shifted, and options can be explored with confidence and ease. We know your feeding path isn’t a one-size-fits-all quick fix— we take the time prenatally and postpartum to ensure your path works for you.
