I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a midwife, and you are warmly welcome to meet me at Pikkujätti Itäkeskus.

I help families with all kinds of situations and challenges concerning breast-/chestfeeding, infant feeding and lactation. Reasons for booking a consultation with me may include, for example:

  • any insecurity or worries considering breastfeeding
  • nipple pain
  • baby’s poor weight gain
  • baby's breastfeeding related symptoms
  • concerns about baby’s latch or possible tongue or lip tie; also post-operational treatment and check-up
  • formula feeding, bottle feeding
  • weaning from formula supplements
  • concerns about milk production
  • blocked milk ducts and mastitis
  • returning to work/studies and continuation of breastfeeding
  • pre-natal planning of breastfeeding.

Regardless of your situation, I will support you with competence and warmth, always individually with your specific needs and wishes in mind.

I also do home visits (in capital region) and online consultations. Read more about me and my services in imetysohjaajaminna.fi.
