Speech therapy helps when a baby isn’t transferring enough milk with each feed, which can be seen with either bottle or breastfeeding.

The expertise combo of Lactation Consultant and Speech Pathology means that there are few situations Lisa can’t help address. Lisa offers solutions for families of varying sorts. Her dual scope of practice creates a wide range of alternative feeding methods for unique cases. Because the needs of each family are unique, she caters to each individual on a case by case basis. Above all, every family has felt loved and cared for by her.
