Coaching Services to Improve Your Relationship with Your Breast Pump

Help you reboot your pumping experience.

HELP! PUMPING SUCKS! Are you struggling with pumping? Maybe you are pumping exclusively and battling to meet your daily collection goals. Maybe you are combining pumping and breastfeeding and are not confident about how to manage it all. Perhaps you are pumping in pain, or pumping sessions are long and arduous. Maybe you are a newbie to it all and just need some hand holding through your maiden voyage. Whatever your issue or concern, I can demystify things for you and help you to establish a more positive relationship with your breast pump. I combine technical knowledge, humor, and elements borrowed from cognitive behavioral therapy to help you reboot your pumping experience. Sessions last about 2 hours during which time I will:​
