West Seattle Services & Consultations
In the West Seattle Boutique
Clinical Lactation Support Group
We know that nursing can comes with challenges. We offer a Clinical Lactation Support Group led by Tracy Corey, RN, IBCLC and owner of Nurturing Expressions. Tracy has over 30 years of experience providing lactation support. The Clinic is organized in a group setting, but Tracy is able to work with each breast/chest feeding person one-on-one addressing any needs and concerns that may arise. Tracy can help with latch and positioning, assess lip and tongue tie and make feeding recommendations. During the clinic group we also help with weighted feeds so you can see exactly how much milk baby is drinking per breast.
Exclusive pumping and bottle-feeding parents are very welcome, and our lactation team can help with any questions or demonstrations.
Clinical Lactation Support Group is hosted at our West Seattle Boutique every Wednesday at 10:30am.
The cost of the group is $30.00.
The first group admission is free if you received your breast pump from Nurturing Expressions.
*fee waiver available for Apple Health clients
