Who I am?

Sofya Brainin, Currently Practicing Registered Nurse( RN,BsN) and Lactation
Consultant (IBCLC).Current work places: NICU, Hospital Breastfeeding clinic,
Private practice

What do I do?

Helping moms and babies to establish and to continue a healthy Breastfeeding
relationships with an emphasis on Family centered care .My services sometimes
includes solutions to: painful breastfeeding, low and over milk supply,
breastfeeding twins and triplets, prevention and treatment of engorgement
and mastitis etc.

Who are my clients?

First time parents, second time parents and whoever need breastfeeding
support.

Why do you need Lactation Consultant?

The medical system supposed to support breastfeeding. In real world mom and
her baby will be discharged from hospital 24 hours post labor and delivery. In
those 24 hours mom expected to recover from labor, to learn how to breastfeed
her baby and to master this skill and go home. Is it doable?
I doubt it…As a result mom falling into situation with lots and lots of unanswered
questions , doubts about all process and unfortunately early weaning from
breastfeeding.
In order to avoid that kind of situations mom needs professional help. The main
role of a Lactation Consultant is to provide the mom with answer urgent
questions related to Breastfeeding ,to help to establish the breastfeeding
relationship and to support the family during all period of breastfeeding.

How often you may need Lactation Consultant support?

Sometimes problem can be solved with one visit or even one phone call. In other
cases longer follow up needed. In my practise I consult moms of newborns and
bigger babies, sometimes even over one year olds.

How do I consult?

Client home visits , visits in my place, skype consultations, telephone and e-mail
consultations.

I got a chance to meet Sofya at a NICU where she helped with teaching me to breastfeed my preemie. I am positive that If it wasn’t for Sofya I wouldn’t be able to breastfeed. She showed various techniques and made suggestions, gave advice and encouragement. Not only she is a great and knowledgeable professional, but also a very caring and loving person. She’s genuinely happy for little achievements and victories in babies development. It was a pleasure interacting with Sofya and I highly recommend her services.

Если бы не Софья, я бы не прокормила свою малышку. She was available and helpful 24/7, encouraged me and never judged. I know for fact if I need any advice with my future kids, she will be the first one to tell me what to do with my boobs 🙂 thank you Sonya!

Sofya is great! Not only she is extremely knowledgeable and professional, she is also a very caring and warm, which is at least as equally important when it comes to breastfeeding and new moms.
When I had my son, she helped me a lot, I didn’t have problems with supply, but latching was an issue, and she patiently thought me again and again. I would ( and did many time:) recommend Sofya to any new mom in a heart beat.

I would highly recommend Sofia, she is very professional and caring. When my son was born, we had a lot of problems with breastfeeding, I did not have enough milk supply, the latch was painful, my nipples where sore. Sofia managed to solve all the problems and my son was breastfed for a year and become a handsome healthy toddler, who had not eaten formula for any single day. It was not easy, but whenever I had problems, Sofia was there for me to help, support and advise. She literally saved my son’s life and my own sanity 🙂 Again, I always recommend her to my pregnant friends, and would recommend her to anyone who plans to have a baby and do breastfeeding happily.

I recently had my second child and since I was pregnant I thought my breastfeeding should be a breeze second time around. First 4 months were easy as expected but little did I know… I recently had a bad case of inflectional mastitis and Sofia’s support and recommendations helped me to get better during this difficult time. When after the treatment I finally felt better and thought I can relax again I practically lost my milk… completely! As it turns out, it is very common after mastitis and Sofia warned me about it! If not for knowledgeable suggestions from Sofia once again, I am confident I would be formula feeding my baby now… I am sure for many mothers out there it would be devastating to stop nursing suddenly and early and so it would have been for me!
Not to mention, Sofia is the nicest carrying lady, who is always there for you. Thanks, Sofia, for all your help and support! I already recommended you to my multiple friends who are mothers or mothers-to-be and will continue to do so!

I am so thankful I met Sofya! My son was born earlier at 32 weeks and I wasn’t ready to breastfeed cuz I know nothing about that. So she helped me a lot, she gave me all nessesery information, guru tips and little “secrets” about how to be successful in this field 🙂 I know her as a great professional and a very nice person. Thank you Sofya!

I can strongly recommend Sofya. She is very caring and knowledgeable. She taught me lots of very helpful techniques on how to better breast feed my newborn baby.

Sofya is very dedicated and knowledgeable lactation consultant, who cares a lot about her clients. Sofya was monitoring me and my baby first weeks after birth till our breastfeeding schedule was established. Later on she was always available by phone to help. Thank you so much Sofya!
