In-home breastfeeding/chestfeeding support and postpartum care.
What I Offer
All care is home based so you don’t have to pack up baby and get out the door!
Breastfeeding support for issues like milk transfer, latch issues, nipple pain, holding positions, over/under supply, sleep issues and other difficulties within the normal course of breast/chestfeeding. I will come to your home, sit with you and your baby, watch your current routine, hear your concerns and give you tools to start down the path of happy feeding. Unlimited text and phone support for 2 weeks is also provided. Education, gentle guidance and loving support can make all the difference when establishing a successful breastfeeding/chestfeeding relationship.
Postpartum Planning and Set up
Planning for postpartum like you plan for birth can be a great relief for parents-to-be! Let me come over, answer your questions and help you set up your space and baby gear so you are ready for baby’s arrival. We can talk about what your first night home will look like, write out a postpartum plan, create your feeding nook and diapering stations, or anything else that is on your mind. This can also be done after baby arrives if needed.

Hi! I’m Danna.
kids of my own
years supporting breastfeeding
years living in Reno
Hi! I am the mom of four children, two boys and two girls, I always thought I would breastfeed my kids but did not realize what kind of bumps could derail that plan. Or how a lack of support could affect it. That is why I am so passionate about supporting you in your breastfeeding journey. I first became a breastfeeding volunteer with La Leche League, helping moms, then loved it so much I just kept learning, becoming a CLE and then taking the CLC exam. I then was trained as a Postpartum Doula.
What is a CLC? “The CLC certification means that a person has received training and competency verification in breastfeeding and human lactation support including assessing the latching and feeding process, providing corrective interventions, counseling mothers, understanding and applying knowledge of milk production including in special circumstances and other commonly encountered situations. All of this give CLCs a strong foundation with which to help moms and babies.” See also CLC Scope of Practice.
Is a CLC the same as an IBCLC? No it isn’t. I am not a medical professional, if you or your baby have medical issues around lactation like prematurity, tongue tie, and others then one of the great IBCLCs in our community are great for you! IBCLCs specialize in the clinical management of breastfeeding.
But if you need help with a better latch, dealing with a plugged duct or mastitis, getting enough feeds or pumping sessions in, recognizing baby’s cues or signs of a good feed a CLC is a great option. I can also spot a bigger problem pretty quick and get you referred to an IBCLC or other specialist.
“I had confidence”
Danna is amazing. Without her help, I don’t know if I could have been successful breastfeeding. She’s extremely knowledgeable. After one meeting, I had confidence in my ability to breastfeed my baby.
“I was able to”
Danna provided helpful support and information when my youngest daughter didn’t gain enough weight to make her Doctor happy. I wanted to go in to the next appointment with enough information and knowledge to have a meaningful conversation with the Doctor and I was able to!
Danna is beyond amazing. She is so knowledgeable and so compassionate. Exactly what new parents need when navigating their breastfeeding journey!
