Can I keep nursing if I have symptoms and am worried I have COVID-19?

Yes! Nursing your baby is a great way to make sure they are getting the antibodies that your body has created to fight any virus. Let’s talk about how to best preserve baby’s safety and your milk supply.

Sometimes we need an extra hand starting our feeding relationship with our babies.

Testimonials

Happy parents and babies = Happy Sarah!
I reached out multiple times through two children for advice on breastfeeding. I struggled and never once was I made to feel like I'm a horrible person for not being able to make it work. Whenever I asked Sarah for advice, she'd be there. It was such a blessing to have her patience and guidance. I never would have made it as far as I did without her help. I would recommend her to anyone.

I am so thankful for Sarah! I unfortunately struggle with low supply thanks to a traumatic birth and recovery, and a postpartum infection that required readmission to the hospital. My goal was to exclusively breastfeed, but 10 weeks later that's just not possible, and with Sarah's encouragement, I am ok with it. Sarah and I came up with a plan to increase my supply, and while 99% of the time I have to supplement with formula, sometimes it is only 1oz - and today, for the first time EVER, my daughter nursed without needing to supplement! I highly recommend Sarah's expertise for anyone who might need it.

Sarah was essential in helping my wife and our newborn daughter establish healthy breast feeding habits. Our baby had a minor tongue tie that was difficult to diagnose. ....... We were also very appreciative of the home visits Sarah made. We don't own a car, so we usually take the bus to our other appointments, which involves so much more preparation. That was nice! A consultation with Sarah is well worth your time and money!

Sarah was instrumental in helping me build up my milk supply with supplements and a feeding/pumping strategy. I rented a hospital grade pump (on Amazon for $2000) from Sarah that is excellent for pumping most efficiently. I highly recommend!
