BABY  AND  ME

LACTATION  SERVICES

         Ann Faust,

 International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

PhD (Bot-Med), IBCLC, MBChB, BA(Hons), RLC, RH, AHG

   Holistic, personalized, and evidence-based breastfeeding support since 2006



 
 

Babies are born to breastfeed, this comes naturally to them. However, this ancient art is a learned skill for many mothers. At Baby & Me Lactation Services, we are committed to offering you the best possible way to reach your breastfeeding goals.



We offer holistic (looking at the big picture), personalized, and detailed consultations at your home, in our clinic or hospitals around Howard, Parts of, Baltimore, Ann Arundel and Montgomery Counties, since 2006. 
We are proud to follow the ILCA's 2015 Strategic Map in our practice as our guide.

Here is Ann's personal statement about her  practice;

                             I am a holistic practitioner who uses evidence-based science as her foundation.  I believe it is my job to not only to help to establish good breastfeeding relationship between the baby (ies) and the mother but to also make sure the whole process of lactation (from pregnancy or induction to weaning and even after) is enjoyable for all the family. What I aim to offer is helping the new parents gain the confidence to adjust the life with the new baby while addressing the breastfeeding and lactation issues that may arise during this relationship. The help may have needed from the first moment you found out about your baby to breastfeeding your toddler and anything and anytime in between. 

Lactation and breastfeeding both are natural processes like walking and talking but just like those it needs to be learned. In lucky circumstances, you learn this from your own community as a young child watching your own mother, relatives or neighbours breastfeeding. But if you grew-up in a community breastfeeding wasn’t the norm, this becomes little harder to adjust. This is where the IBCLC comes to help; answer your questions, point out if there are any medical reasons why breastfeeding is not working (both mother and/or baby related) or even any emotional issues that need to be worked on to establish a better breastfeeding relationship. When I work with you and your family I would like to communicate closely with all your healthcare professionals. This would be from your physician, midwife, to your chiropracticioner to your herbalist as I believe every one of us brings an answer to another piece of the puzzle (please remember, human beings are complex beings) to give the optimal start to your baby in life and serve you fully.

Remember how we start this life matters.  

  
Ann's personality and tenderness were incredible.

Contacting Ann Faust, IBCLC, was very beneficial for me and my newborn. 

Although this was my second baby, I was having a lot of trouble breastfeeding.

Ann quickly accommodated me with a home visit and taught me strategies

to help get me and my little one on the path to success.

We've been doing fantastic ever since!
