During this time WeLCome Babies Lactation is still available to support you and your family with in-person visits in the Metro Vancouver Area. We are taking the proper safety precautions and prefer to do virtual consults instead of in-person if possible. Before we visit you in your home we will conduct a mandatory COVID-19 screening form and have put in place proper cleaning and disinfecting measures in between clients. Please contact us directly for more information or to book your consultation.
Hi my name is Brianna Courteen-Nurse and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2016 with over seven years experience as a Labour and Delivery and Maternity Registered Nurse.
I am very passionate and committed to providing individualized comprehensive support to families coping with any feeding challenges or difficulties. I understand that these challenges don't just happen Monday-Friday, therefore, I am available 7 days a week!
I will work closely with you and your family to assess learning needs and provide up-to-date education, personalized care plans and effective feeding techniques. We will work together to help make your feeding goals successful!
Outside of working as a Lactation Consultant and Perinatal Nurse I spend much of my time with my niece and nephew, as well as enjoying the outdoors hiking and camping, and in the winter months curled up on the couch crocheting or reading a good book.
Finding the right support can make all the difference!
Private In-Home Initial Consultation-$175
60-90 minute full assessment and evaluation with personalized breastfeeding/lactation education, written care plan (if needed) and 2 weeks follow-up email/text support
Subsequent In-Home Consultation-$160

If you have some questions or concerns about breastfeeding or any other feeding concerns I am more than happy to provide a 10-30 minute consultation.
If I believe you need an in-home consultation I will not charge you for the phone consult and we will book an in-home visit.
