Breastfeeding is a natural process and can often require adjustments and fine tuning to make it work for baby and parent. My approach to lactation consulting is to provide you with solutions that will help meet your baby's feeding needs, and your own goals. There is no “one size fits all” answer when it comes to breastfeeding - only what works for you and your baby. I offer visits in the comfort of your own home, or via Telemedicine, to develop a personalized plan for you and your baby.
"Nursing has continued to improve and has become really special. Your help in the beginning made such a difference - I was in rough shape!"
“Tamar came to my home to support my child and me through what was the most frustrating part of our first three weeks: our failure in breast feeding. She took the time to fully understand the dynamics of our situation, and made me feel heard. Tamar then offered practical next steps, which less than a week later resulted in me being free of nipple guards, and my daughter able to get a full meal. I highly endorse Tamar's professionalism, kindness, and effectiveness.”
"My husband, newborn and I attended a virtual session with Tamar and it was the most valuable 30 minutes we could have ever hoped for! She made us feel so comfortable and her coaching was so incredibly personal and effective. Our newborn is now nursing beautifully and we have the extra sleep to show for it :) The first few weeks is such a crucial time and learning from Tamar has allowed us to truly enjoy it together. Thank you Tamar for your invaluable guidance!"
"I just wanted to say thank you for helping me stick with it. I likely would not have been able to keep up with my breastfeeding goals without your help and support. I truly appreciate it."
“As a new mom, I was so nervous. My daughter arrived three weeks early and weighed 5lb 7oz when we left the hospital. I was having difficulty breastfeeding and there was a lot of concern about her weight and that she wasn't getting enough breast milk. I met Tamar through Longwood Pediatrics. She came in and was so calm. I immediately felt relieved by her demeanor and I knew that she was going to help me to successfully breastfeed. We went through several nursing positions that I had never even thought of. I was able to ask her anything and cry in front of her. It was such a stressful time and she made it 100% better. My daughter tripled her birth weight by 6 months!”
"My son turned one last week and in reflecting on the past twelve months, I am beyond grateful to Tamar for her support, advice, and encouragement -- especially in those early days. Tamar's experience and knowledge coupled with her warmth and calm demeanor made all the difference in our breast-feeding success. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Tamar!"
