Lactation Counseling Services has been helping families "eat local" for 8 years! We believe in a retail free practice; your feeding goals are our #1 priority. This means that if you need a nipple shield during our visit- one will be provided to you. Everyone's feeding journey looks very different, you will leave your appointment with a clear plan to continue forward with your feeding goals.
It is our mission to normalize breastfeeding/chestfeeding with evidence based care. Over the years, we have established amazing relationships with the community. Including infant body and oral therapists, local pediatricians and maternal mental and health care providers. We look forward to continuing to provide the best care possible to parents and babies!
We now have two IBCLC's to serve families, expanding our service area and more access to care!
We serve the following areas: Wilmington, Leland, Carolina and Kure Beach, Boiling Spring Lakes, Southport, Winnabow, Bolivia, Rocky Point, Burgaw, Hampstead, Surf City, Holly Ridge and Jacksonville areas.
Thousands of families served and feeding goals met
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I reached out to Rachael when our newborn was just a week old and I was having some concerns over my milk supply. She was kind, extremely knowledgable and so helpful. She comforted me during a time when I felt most vunerable and helped me feel confident about breastfeeding!
This Practice embraces diversity in all forms. We do not discriminate. Breast/chestfeeding/pumping/all journey's are welcome here!
