Using a therapeutic approach to help families and babies thrive.
Nourish Nevada serves all of Reno, Nevada and outlying areas in person or through video call.
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.
We recognize and respect that not all lactating people identify as she/her or as a mother. We also understand that not all lactating parents use the term breastfeeding. Please inform us of your preferred pronouns and terms and we will use them.
As a multidisciplinary lactation and breastfeeding consulting practice, we offer services that support families during their unique breastfeeding journey and intervention to help infants be successful in breastfeeding.
Our pre and postnatal private consultations, clinics, and weekly support group seek to nourish parents and build confidence for success.
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 do all of the Letters Mean?
You probably have seen IBCLC, CLEC, CLC, OTR, SLP in your search for solving your breastfeeding problems. Find out what they all mean and how it affects your care.
What is an IBCLC – 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 CLC – 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.
In accordance with Washoe County guidelines Nourish Nevada requires all adults to wear a mask in our office. If we are coming to your home, you can decide for yourself if you will wear a mask or not. We will always wear a mask for the protection of you, your new baby, and for ourselves. Please let us know if you have any questions.
