Ultra sound and or infra red therapy is a fast and effective way to reduce pain and inflammation while clearing the blockage in the milk ducts to help increase milk flow.
After a release is done our lactation consultant, Leilani Songer, will assist you and your baby to get a more comfortable and deeper latch, which usually results in a more effective milk transfer with half the energy expended by the infant with twice as much milk as previously transferred. You will then be shown and assisted in practicing effective wound care to keep the wound healing properly and quickly as possible. We schedule follow up appointments as frequently as needed for optimal wound healing and comfortable and effective nursing. SEE VIDEOS

My four week old and I were having trouble with breastfeeding–generally, as a first time mom, I just have no idea what I’m doing!
In just 90 minutes, Leilani identified some key issues with positioning and latching, and for the first time ever, I was able to feed my girl without pain! I went home with the training she provided in just one session and things have continued to improve.
I don’t dread my girl’s next meal anymore! Thank you, Leilani!

Leilani is very sweet, helpful, informative and really cares about her patients and always willing to take a call and help out in any way she can.
I had a few very painful clogged ducts and she was great about coming over to my house Helping with heating/cooling/ massaging, etc. She was influential for me in helping me get the right flange size and type for my breast pump which made a world of a difference. She has an infrared light that reduced immediate inflammation in my breast and suggested letchin supplement which helps out tremendously. Overall I’m very happy to have found her. She is great and best thing is she comes to you when you need. Thank you, Leilani!

She helped me resolve my mastitis, taught me how to feed my baby with and without a nipple shield and restored my confidence as a first time mom! She also referred me to Dr. Najmeh for my sons lip and tongue tie revision procedure (which was the best experience also) and assisted us in the aftercare exercises. She has been a tremendous help in my life and was very informative, caring and sensitive to my issues and all my postpartum emotions. I can’t thank Leilani enough. Highly recommended!!!
