Believe me when I say you’re not alone with your breastfeeding challenges.
You may be feeling like you’re the only mother in the world experiencing this, but that simply isn’t the case. I have helped thousands of women in the Ontario Canada area and online around the World over the last 15+ years.
I know it can be a worrying and emotionally draining time. Breastfeeding is natural but doesn’t always come naturally and seeking help and support do not make you weak or a failure. There is always a solution. The sooner you reach out for help the quicker it is to overcome any challenges. Remember pain is not normal! Sore nipples are not normal, just like stubbing your toe on the table’s leg is not normal. Reach out, I am here for you to help you make this experience enjoyable, to get you on the road towards a wonderful, empowering, positive breastfeeding journey.

What you can expect from a session with me
I understand as a Mother myself being sleep deprived searching for answers or help at two o’clock in the morning or even afternoon you probably don’t have the energy for a long arduous journey through a wall of text. So in short here is what you can expect from a session with me.
I charge a flat fee which allows us a relaxed atmosphere to be able to work in – no one is watching the time go by. On average sessions last from 1 – 1.5 hours depending on the baby since they can be unpredictable. During a session, detailed breastfeeding assessment will be taken which helps me understand what is going on and what needs to be addressed.
I will be helping you with latching, positioning, I will also be showing you how to tell if your baby is getting enough milk and how to know when s/he is full or undecided.
The session will last until the baby is full, while all your challenges have been addressed, questions answered and the right plan of action determined to overcome any and all of your difficulties.
Now I would guess you are curious as to what my qualifications are; well to put in a short and fair way, I am a registered I.B.C.L.C and have been trusted by mothers such as yourself to help them in their breastfeeding endeavours for the last 15+ years (over 3,550 clients) helping them overcome much of the same challenges you may be facing.

Read Teresa’s Story
“Timéa was a life saver! I was overwhelmed and emotional and Timéa was very empathetic and knew exactly the right things to say and do. She responded right away to texts and phone calls and answered any questions we had. She was also available right away when we needed her to come to the house. We are so grateful that we found her and would strongly recommend her! My daughter is now 11 months, still breastfeeding and having no difficulties. Thank you Timéa for everything!”

“Timéa helped me though a very difficult second breastfeeding experience.
It took my daughter and I weeks to get breastfeeding established, I had 3 bouts of mastitis, took 5 weeks’ worth of antibiotics, and had one very painful experience with thrush. Every time I saw Timéa, she had solid, practical, extremely knowledgeable advice to impart.
The last visit in particular was pretty much life changing – with one wise recommendation to change positioning, I went from the kind of painful breastfeeding that makes you want to give up, to enjoying every minute of feeding my baby! From there on out, everything was bliss. Timéa is an incredible resource and support. I am so grateful to her for helping me through such a challenging time in our breastfeeding relationship. I couldn’t have done it without her!”
