Zoe R. | International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in Auburn, WA

MamaMermaid Perinatal Services LLC

    Practice overview

    My practice currently primarily focuses on lactation care and support as an IBCLC, doing home visits in the South Puget Sound area. I do 1:1 prenatal visits to discuss past medical and breastfeeding history to create a plan to reach your feeding goals. I specialize in creating pumping plans, assessing possible causes for breast & nipple pain, determining adequate intake, planning for returning to work, introducing solids and safe weaning. If you have experienced infant loss, I can also guide and support your choices for either suppressing lactation or donating your milk.

    I also occasionally provide care as a night nanny or postpartum doula. Providing practical, hands-on support in the home during the fourth trimester brings me much joy.

    In the future, my practice will adapt to a continuous care model, starting from pregnancy, to birth, to postpartum. It is what I believe true “with-mother” care should look like. This package is right for those who choose to birth at home. It can be utilized alongside midwifery care, or can be adapted for those choosing to birth outside the medical system. Care will remain the scope that of an IBCLC, herbalist and doula (or birthkeeper), and will not be considered medical care. More details regarding what this package involves are to come in the near future.

    Care philosophy

    I embrace matrescence, respect autonomy and innate maternal intuition, and support normal physiological birth at home. Lactation care involves listening to the mother, helping identify and meet feeding goals, give counseling and support, and work through various breastfeeding related issues that may afflict mother and baby. Brushing off a mothers concerns or inciting guilt are unacceptable.
