Lactation Services



" Nourish the body, feed the soul "

North Dallas Doulas Melissa Espey Mueller

Breastfeeding can be a beautiful, yet challenging experience. Likewise, you may decide to breast or bottle feed, do a combination of both; or to pump exclusively. 

The good news is, we are here to support you whatever YOUR chosen journey. 

Here at North Dallas Doula Associates, we have 5 Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants to assist you in discovering what works best for you and your family.

Our experienced team offers in home lactation consultations, as well as, in office options for your convenience. Many insurance companies will cover a visit with an IBCLC and we can provide you with everything you need in advance to make that process as easy as possible. 

Additionally, if you are preparing to re-lactate or induce lactation, we can assist you in developing a proactive plan.

Schedule your pre-delivery lactation planning session today!
