Lactation Circle and Breastfeeding Education

I facilitate weekly breastfeeding support groups for nursing moms and babies at any point along their breastfeeding journey. Held at Women’s Wellness of NJ in Hackettstown and Madison under IBCLC supervision, the group is a wonderful and FREE resource for camaraderie, expert advice, test weights, and occasional cookies. Breastfeeding classes for expectant parents are held at both locations; please contact me for more information.

As an educator certified through Lamaze, I provide frank, informative and inspiring childbirth classes infused with humor, knowledge, and love. I offer in-home private classes, group and private refresher classes for veteran parents, and group sessions in Madison and Hackettstown NJ.

Please contact for further information.

Placenta Encapsulation

Your baby’s placenta contains natural hormones, proteins, and iron that can support your postpartum well- being. Prepared raw, I dehydrate and encapsulate the placenta, and provide a tincture and umbilical cord keepsake. Each placenta typically yields between 100-200 pills. Mothers say that placenta pills can:

  • Avoid baby blues
  • Stabilize your mood
  • Boost your iron levels
  • Increase your energy level
  • Enhance your milk production
  • Lessen postpartum bleeding
  • Reduce night sweats
  • Left over capsules can be taken in times of stress, hormonal imbalance and during menopause

Fee: $300 (Includes pick-up, delivery, and instructions)
