Follow Up Visits

Occasionally, a second or third visit is recommended or desired.  Briana will come to you, observe a feeding with pre & post weighing of the baby.  All of your questions and concerns will be addressed.  These in-person follow-up visits are a great way to check in with Briana along the way during your breastfeeding relationship with your baby.

“Briana was a tremendous help to my newborn daughter and I as we worked through the early weeks of breastfeeding.  Her knowledge and support helped my daughter and I establish and maintain a successful breastfeeding relationship.  Whenever I needed help or had questions, Briana has been readily available.  We never would have gotten to where we are today without her help, guidance and support.  Many thanks!”  -Amy S.

In-home Childbirth Education

Kate Quinn, RN, Certified Childbirth Educator

Kate offers completely individualized childbirth education classes in the comfort of your own home. Each class tailored to what you want and need for your own birth experience preferences. Kate’s passion for birth started long ago, she has been a labor & delivery nurse for over 20 years now. She has a kind heart, is a great teacher and will leave you and your partner feeling ready, confident and prepared for your birthing experience.

Kate’s class is the perfect new-parent-primer on birth and basic infant care. My husband and I loved having a birth class taught by an experienced OB nurse and mom. We are planning a physiologic, doula-supported hospital birth, and Kate provided us with the education we needed to prepare for it. She answered all of our questions about the stages of labor and how to get our needs and preferences met in the healthcare system. We loved that Kate tailored the class to our topics of interest: coping with labor pain using relaxation techniques and body positioning, how to swaddle an infant, etc. I recommend Kate’s class to any new parent.” -Emily K.
