Nourish Nevada is a multidisciplinary lactation and feeding practice serving Northern Nevada. We offer services that support families during their unique breastfeeding journey and intervention to help infants be successful in breastfeeding. We believe that breastfeeding provides an infant with the best possible start and has endless health benefits to mom and baby. We also know that breastfeeding can be challenging for many families and that a supportive and individualized plan is key to success. Our pre and postnatal private consultations, clinics and weekly support group seek to nourish parents and build confidence for success.
We aim to make ourselves inclusive of those who do not use the term breast for their feeding method. We acknowledge there are families out there who use the term chestfeeding, and will use that term as your preference if you so choose, but on this page, it is often referred to as breastfeeding in order to keep the wording more simple.
We Are Unique
Our providers are trained allied health professionals with a strong background in infant feeding and swallowing. An infant’s oral motor skills play an important role in the success of breastfeeding. In many cases, minor refinement in the infant’s oral motor skills can make an immediate difference to the success of the breastfeeding pair, as well as providing long-term benefits and preventing more serious problems (mobimotherhood.org). Feeding Therapists are experts on the structure and function of the mouth and the swallow. Their expertise can help babies become more efficient and coordinated feeders. We strive to stay up-to-date with the newest research and techniques to provide families with the highest level of support in lactation and infant feeding and swallowing.
What is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant?
IBCLC’s function and contribute as members of the maternal-child health team. They provide care in a variety of settings while making appropriate referrals to other health professionals and community support resources. Working together with mothers/lactating parents, families, policymakers, and society, IBCLC certificants provide expert breastfeeding and lactation care, promote changes that support breastfeeding and help reduce the risks of not breastfeeding.
What is a Certified Lactation Counselor?
CLCs are dedicated to the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding and human lactation in their work to prevent and solve breastfeeding problems. They understand that breastfeeding works best when it is the cultural norm and when the provider of lactation support and services is culturally competent.
