Emily Ager, LM, CPM, IBCLC
Hi! I'm Emily. I am a LICENSED midwife and lactation consultant with a background in out-of-hospital birth, clinical lactation services and years of breastfeeding experience. I feel honored to have worked with hundreds of families to find real solutions to their baby feeding challenges, I am passionate about meeting parents where they are, connecting them to resources, and helping to create a sustainable support plan beyond one-on-one care. I love playing in the forest with my 2 young boys, pup and husband, cooking hearty homemade marinara sauce, and drinking really good black coffee.
We meet one-on-one for a history review, feeding assessment, weight check and feeding plan. Common concerns include painful latch, sore nipples, slow weight gain of baby, tongue-tie assessment, and weaning solutions. Usually a 60-90 minute visit at our Wellness Center.
Lactation Consultation in your home! Usually a 90-120 minute visit. Travel fee for 20+ miles outside of Tacoma.
60 Minutes of one-on-one time to discuss your challenges and find creative solutions. May not be appropriate for every situation, contact Emily for more info at 253-655-7817.
Establish care before baby arrives to easily get the support you need as soon as you need it. Great for folks with specific concerns about lactation or a history of difficult nursing experiences.
