Schedule Your Lactation Support Visit - Breathing Space

Personalized Lactation Support

At Your Home or The Breastfeeding Center 

Jen has been working with new parents, babies, and young children for more than a decade. She is excited to help new families meet their breastfeeding goals. She offers practical and evidence-based advice and hopes parents find working with her to be empowering, non-judgmental, and enjoyable. Jen also enjoys working with the entire family as a yoga instructor and infant massage educator. Before focusing lactation, Jen worked for years in non-profit administration and public health advocacy.
If you are struggling with latching difficulties, painful nursing, or concerned about baby’s weight gain or low milk production, a lactation consultation can help. Topics can range from simply checking that everything really is going ok, to troubleshooting difficulties, to balancing work and breastfeedng, to mixed feeding or introducing solids, or to weaning and ending the nursing part of your parenting journey – basically anything and everything breastfeeding baby related.

Frequently Asked Questions


Health insurance is required to cover lactation support but not all plans have in-network lactation consultants available to assist. If a provider is “in-network” they can bill on your behalf without any upfront payment from you. If not, you must pay and then request reimbursement from your insurance company. Breathing Space is not in network with any insurance companies.
