Amber Allgaier is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and mother of four.  She works full-time as a lactation consultant serving families in Arlington and Alexandria, and has had the privilege of working with thousands of young families in the DC Metro area.  She understands the needs of the new mother and her passion is providing support to mothers as they navigate the intense weeks following birth. She teaches prenatal and postpartum classes, and offers in-home breastfeeding consultations once baby has arrived.  

 

We recognize that the days and weeks following the arrival of a new baby are filled with both overwhelming joy and overwhelming exhaustion.  When baby is not able to feed easily or comfortably or effectively in the early weeks, this can add an additional layer of discouragement, confusion, and anxiety.  However, you do not have to navigate this time alone. We offer gentle and experienced support to you and your new family, no matter what your feeding journey is.
