Lactation Consultations. These appointments are currently scheduled at Central Oregon Pediatric Associates (COPA) only and take place in the Northwest Crossing clinic at 760 NW York Drive, Bend, Oregon. We will spend a full hour discussing your health history, current concerns and creating a practical, sustainable plan together that supports your goal and works through the difficulties you are facing. Appointments can be made from conception to weaning and you are welcome to bring yourself and your baby or your support people with you! You do not need to be established with COPA to schedule a lactation appointment.

Learn more about me and my journey to this place as a student, lactation consultant, and mother.  There’s lots more to the story but the gist is this: I love coffee and learning, I have a supportive partner that is calm and helps hold down the fort while I live my high-energy-forever-student dreams at conferences and workshops and I have two awesome kids that keep me loving this trek through the parenthood wilderness. They are cute, too! So they are here to stay. My education started in Human Development and has led me to Human Lactation and Breastfeeding Medicine.

I love to lament about missing the rain so if you are from the valley and you need a partner to discuss the drizzly skies and green grass of yesteryear—let me know! I am ready for you.

 

"I was asked recently by an expecting new mom planning to breast feed, about what was my “must have” baby item. Without hesitation I told her a home visit from Brooke. I told her that Brooke would be her guide through her breast feeding journey.

As I look back on the early parts of my journey, Brooke was a shining light for my baby and I. She is an invaluable resource to families in this community. A true artist."
