Dr McKenzie's experience as a midwife, adoptive mother and naturopathic doc specializing in women's and children's health make her a unique lactation ally. Lactation counselling sessions with Keyena are helpful for prenatal nursing preparation, postpartum settling for nursing parents or those with new birth experiences (cesarean, multiples, cleft lip/palate, tandem nursing, etc), milk supply concerns, latch challenges, nursing parent/baby thrush, baby growth concerns, reassurance, supplemental nursing systems and more. Timing of follow-up visit based on nursing parent/baby need anywhere from daily until everyone settles into a sweet pattern, weekly or monthly as nursing parent/baby needs change. Appropriate for birthing parents, adoptive parents, milk donors and partners.
