Thank you so much for your flexibility in providing doula services. I know I scheduled late and then changed my mind some, and yet it wasn't a problem. I will recommend Birthways to all my friends who are expecting!
Breastfeeding Preparation Packages
Preparing for Breastfeeding
Our lactation team is happy to provide you with the resources and information you need to establish a satisfying and effective breastfeeding relationship with your baby(ies). We believe that mothers learn from their babies, and babies learn from their mothers in a wonderful unfolding in the first days and weeks. As lactation specialists, we support the process.
We offer private consultation in preparation for breastfeeding as well as preparation packages, which include a Lactation Specialist coming to your home after your baby is here. The one-on-one session with a Board Certified Lactation Consultant or Lactation Educator allows for a sharing of your health history or any special concerns that you may have. You’ll not only gain an evidence-based foundation of understanding breastfeeding as a new mother, but you’ll have a plan for side-stepping common challenges. Private consultations in preparation for nursing have been especially helpful for:
- First time mothers seeking greater confidence
- Mothers with prior lactation struggles
- Women with a history of breast surgery, injury, augmentation or breast reduction
- Mothers of multiples
- Women at risk for preterm birth or whose babies may be at higher risk for feeding difficulties
We also offer packages based on optimal models of breastfeeding preparation…….

Everyone I spoke to at Birthways before and after my son's birth helped me feel like there was a community of women who were genuinely interested in helping my family get off to a smooth start, both with the birth and beyond. I am so grateful!
