Comprehensive Breastfeeding Support

For Families in Portland, Oregon

With Love

We have learned that the transformation into parenthood is one of the most profound experiences of life.  We approach each breastfeeding consultation with sensitivity and compassion during this tender time.  We recognize that by empowering families their bond is strengthened.  This may be one of the most important outcomes of our work.

With Care

We recognize that every family is unique, with unique goals and aspirations.  To honor this special time we come to you, either in your home, at your birth center or hospital.  We take the time to listen to you and your baby’s story and help you gain insight on the challenges that are presenting themselves.  We provide opportunities for ongoing support through peer groups, as well as phone and email communication.

With Skill

We make it a priority to stay current with evidence-based research and information.  We share our skills from observing hundreds of babies breastfeeding and help empower you to make informed choices for your family.  We communicate closely with other members of your care team to help you receive the best possible support in reaching your breastfeeding goals.

Our History

Our experience as a team includes 20 + years experience in lactation, midwifery, birth and postpartum doula work, many years teaching childbirth, breastfeeding and newborn care, as well as bodywork for women during pregnancy and beyond.

Meg began her lactation work with the wonderful team at Beyond Birth Lactation Services at Zenana Spa and Wellness Center.  She then founded Natural Latch in 2010.

As Natural Latch continued to grow, Rachael and Rose joined the team creating one of Portland’s few independent private group lactation practices.

Our goal is to support the breastfeeding relationship between mother, child and family as a child grows.  We plan to continue our work with companies and businesses to support women in the work place.  We also plan to continue our advocacy work with local and international organizations to support breastfeeding worldwide.
