In-home breastfeeding support
I'm Tereza Peercy, Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP), International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Mom of 4! I spent the first ten years of my career as a Registered Nurse in the Pediatric ICU and Pediatric ER setting where I developed a love for helping moms and babies with breastfeeding. After enduring many problems while breastfeeding my twins in 2012-13 I realized that I wanted to be a resource and advocate for breastfeeding moms in my community. I currently work as a WHNP part time and I also work occasionally in a local hospital as an IBCLC. My desire is to help breastfeeding mothers grow in confidence in their ability to nourish their babies. I offer my expertise and encouragement to breastfeeding women here in the Louisville, KY area (will travel up to 60 miles) via in-home consultations and from anywhere via e-consults.
Allow me to join you in your home to observe a nursing session. I will bring everything required for a full consultation. Please do not feel the need to clean or organize before my arrival. While I do love pets, please keep dogs in a separate space during our visit.
Consultation is done over secure video or phone. Great for questions about pumping, pumping schedules, returning to work, prenatal breastfeeding consult, inducing lactation or any questions that do not require hands-on help. Please note that for cases of painful nipples, latch issues, or weight gain issues in a young baby, in-person consults are best when possible.
