Rocky Mountain Lactation

About:  I provide lactation consultation, breastfeeding classes, and breastfeeding support groups.  Breastfeeding is natural… and learned.  You need the right support to begin your breastfeeding and parenting journey with confidence. A listening ear, a no-judgment zone, and someone focused on YOUR goals and needs. I will support you as you overcome challenges to reach your individual breastfeeding goals. I combine evidence-based techniques, specialized training, and years of experience with non-judgmental support and encouragement.

Tip:  Pain with breastfeeding is not normal!  Getting skilled help during the early signs of difficulty can mean resolving things more quickly and easily, while waiting or “toughing it out” can actually make issues more complicated and challenging to resolve.  Remember, most insurance is required to reimburse you for lactation consultation.  Don’t delay!

Discount:  10% off initial consult

Mama Nurture Wellness: Evidence-Based Holistic Care

About:  Hi! My name is Megan Dempsey, BA, IBCLC, CD(DONA), LMT, BCMT, RLC. I am the person behind Mama Nurture Wellness! I am a human and microbial biologist by degree with a background in human nutrition and dietetics. I thoroughly enjoy putting my depth of knowledge to work for conceiving, birthing, and postpartum families. I have two offices in Englewood and also offer services in your home.

I offer numerous services for families. I am an IBCLC and offer lactation consultation, prenatal lactation education, and lactation support groups. I work with new families on solving the mysteries that their babies present to them and develop feeding plans that make sense for you. I am a certified birth doula and provide non-medical childbirth support to birthing families. Birth doulas provide emotional, physical, spiritual, and informational support to birthing families. I am a board-certified massage therapist and, now, focus on prenatal, postpartum, and birthing people and their families. I am advanced practice certified in prenatal, postpartum, and labor support massage therapy, as well as, being a certified NeuroMuscular therapist and have a background in rehabilitative massage therapy. I offer massage therapy for pregnant people in either a face down or side-lying position and am able to vary the pressure to suit your individual needs.

I also offer Birthing From Within childbirth education, a mindful approach to childbirth education in private and small group (2-3 birthing people and their birth partner). Finally, I offer Abuse Survivor Birth Consultations. These consultations are to aid survivors of sexual and physical trauma an opportunity to become familiar with situations that may arise during birth and assess their own level of trauma. Then, together, we can problem-solve ways for survivors to feel in control through during their birth. Survivors can then use this information to write a birth plan to help their medical providers support them in the ways they need during birth.

To The Moon

About:  Jilayne Smith is both a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant.  After many years helping mothers overcome the challenges of breastfeeding (and parenthood in general) in an office setting, it was time to simultaneously help mothers in the comfort of their home. Having two kids of her own and the experience of her career, she understands the physical and emotional difficulties that can potentially come with breastfeeding. She will do everything in her power to support you in your breastfeeding journey and help give you the tools and confidence to meet YOUR own personal goals. With a unique approach and a decade of experience as a Nurse Practitioner, Jilayne understands it takes a village and To The Moon would love to help you and your family.

Tips:  Breastfeeding, in theory, is a natural process but it most definitely can present us with unique challenges we haven’t dealt with before. It can be crucial to get early assistance with breastfeeding if you are experiencing difficulties or even before you deliver if you like to “have your ducks in a row”. An IBCLC can help you overcome many of these challenges by providing you with expert advice and the support you need to have a successful breastfeeding experience.
