Super Doula

I’ve decided to call this newest certification, Super Doula! To me it sounds more marvelous. This certification is brand-new for me. I just became certified on July 11th, 2018. This certification is an honor that they bestow on few doulas. I offer a heart-felt thank you to all of my clients and the readers of “Doulas’ Guide to Birthing Your Way”!

Teresa Bailey Lactation Services Launched

I’ve been an IBCLC for more than five years now. I’ve decided to focus on lactation help. I’m launching two services: home lactation consultations for moms in and around Pittsburgh. I’m also offering home breastfeeding classes to help prepare new moms.

I have two appointments available per day, a morning and an afternoon. My initial appointment is generally three hours so that I can help a new mom with at least two feedings and also answer any questions that she has.

I have a new Facebook page for lactation: https://www.facebook.com/teresabaileylactation. Teresa and baby
