Whether you have a newborn and are struggling to get breastfeeding going smoothly, or you have an older baby that just started having problems breastfeeding, contact Simply the Breast for lactation assistance! If you are pregnant and just want to be as prepared as possible so things start off on the right track, we can also help. Simply the Breast provides in-home lactation consultations and private, prenatal breastfeeding education for expecting moms.
We are passionate about helping moms get their babies going breastfeeding and enjoying the precious bond that comes from breastfeeding your little one. We believe in a holistic approach and treating the dyad (both mom and baby)! Our speciality is evaluating the impact of birth on baby, assessing for oral restrictions (you may have heard of tongue-ties), and working with parents to rehabilitate their baby to breastfeed functionally. While this is our speciality, take a look at here to see other areas that we are trained in and how we could help you.
We believe in the KISS method…Keep It Simple Silly! This means that wherever possible we want to help you simplify life around baby. In addition, we only recommend the things we know are supportive and effective in helping your baby to breastfeed functionally (especially when you are already exhausted and overwhelmed!).
If you are passionate about breastfeeding your little one and would like to do what is necessary for their long-term health, then Simply the Breast is right for you and can help you give your breast!
Come visit our new office in Thousand Oaks starting in June 2019! Excited for you to see our new place and to hear of the exciting things to come this year.
If No One Has Been Able to Help You Breastfeed…
You have found the right place!!! We assure you that we will listen to you… to every issue you tell us. We do not believe that many moms just have “more sensitive nipples” or that “your nipples will just toughen up” or that “some moms just can’t breastfeed.” We will work with you to figure out what is going on and why you are having difficulty with breastfeeding and will work to come up with a plan to address those issues. We’d love to talk with you and just hear you out! If you still aren’t sure if you want to seek (more?) help, check out our facebook page reviews. That might convince you.

From the Comfort of Your Home
- Are you interested in a mobile consultation? Would you like a lactation consult from the comfort of your couch, during work hours, or while you are on the go? Now you can get a lactation consultation from an IBCLC on your iphone or ipad with the Maven Clinic app. Appointments are available for 20 and 30 minute sessions. Get the app today and book an appointment.
If you are still unsure if a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) could help you, know that research (Bonuck et al. 2014) shows that assistance from an IBCLC is more effective than general clinic support in helping moms to exclusively breastfeed and breastfeed for longer! Find out more about how a lactation consultant (IBCLC) could help you here.
Simply the Breast provides prenatal breastfeeding education and lactation consulting services to Ventura County!
