The birth of your child, whether its the first or fifth, is undoubtedly one of the most intimate and joy-filled experiences in life. By understanding medical terminology and the labor and delivery process that will be used during your birthing experience, you will be better able to make educated, informed decisions about your plan of care. Although breastfeeding is nature's way or nourishing our babies, it doesn't come easy for most!

The prenatal consults and courses offered by Baby Settler Consulting aim to give you personalized, detailed information specific to your pregnancy and your desires for birth.

Let’s face it.

What people are saying about Hillary and Baby Settler...

"Hillary was the support I didn't think existed and the key my family needed to change our newborn experience. Her support, guidance, demeanor are like receiving the hug you need from your Mom, the high five from you friend because, you've got this and the camaraderie your sister always provides. Hillary helped me with an over production of milk, lessening my Mom guilt, giving me back time to be with my new baby and so I wasn't in constant pain. She helped my husband and I find a flow to give our newborn the best experience we could. The best part, she is not a one way or the highway. She does not have one answer for you. She listens to you, your goals, needs and devises the plan for you to reach where you are trying to go. I can't thank her enough. Literally, I have to stop myself from texting her daily to send her baby photos and say thank you. :) If you feel lost, overwhelmed and need to be heard - reach out to Hillary. She will advocate for your best interest, all without judgement. My family will use her services again, with our daughter and when we have our second child (who knows what curve balls the second one will bring) :)."  -

I am so grateful I reached out to Baby Settler for help! I had my 2 children sleeping in bed with me and my husband for about 6 months. My kids are 2 years old and 13 months, it was crowded, and no one was getting restful sleep. I reached out to Baby Settler, and oh am I happy I did. We came up with a plan, strategy and then braced ourselves for a wild ride. Hillary was there EVERY STEP OF THE WAY! She walked us through unanticipated challenges, she settled my mama guilt when I wanted to give up and checked in on all of us. We are 1 week in and the kids are sleeping through the night with minimal bedtime fuss. Next step weening, and I know exactly who my go to consultant is! Thank you, Baby Settler!!

I met Hilary while in the hospital after delivering my baby boy a few weeks ago. Coincidentally, I later learned about her private practice via my pediatrician who sings nothing but Hilary's praises. I reached out to Hilary to begin working with her when I was having supply issues and my son was appearing seemingly disinterested in breastfeeding. Given this is my first child, I was completely panicked when he was not gaining the weight that he needed. Her soft demeanor, understanding and encouraging point of view, and shared experience all proved critical in helping me and my husband develop a feeding plan suitable for our family. I couldn't be happier with Hilary's services and look forward to continuing to develop my relationship with her.
