ANM Opens Satellite Offices

Sometimes amazing things happen when you are least expecting them! That's how we feel about the past six weeks here at A Nurturing Moment. We are so excited to be able to offer enhanced IBCLC support to mothers across the Tennessee Valley with the addition of two satellite offices.

Madison Satellite

It seems like it was just a coincidence (although we know it wasn't) that Melissa Florence (one of our IBCLC's) was getting her hair at Studio 106 when the owner Dana Burrows mentioned that she was looking for businesses to rent her upstairs rooms. The wheels began turning, and Melissa just knew that God was giving us this opportunity to better serve our moms in Madison, Harvest and East Limestone.

Melissa went to work transforming a bare upstairs room into a comfortable, welcoming satellite office for A Nurturing Moment. She has begun seeing mothers and babies there and is able to provide breast pump and baby scale rental, as well. She is available for in-home consults, if that is easier for mom and baby. She particularly enjoys coordinating with the pediatricians and family practitioners in Madison so that their patients don't have to come all the way to Huntsville to be seen by a lactation consultant.

The Madison satellite office also serves as a pick-up point for mothers who order diapers, breastfeeding supplies or anything else they need from our Huntsville store. The Mommy milk meet-up breastfeeding support group will meet the second Wednesday of each month at 3:00 pm in Madison. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 256-658-8206.

Fayetteville Satellite

About the same time that the door was opening for our Madison satellite, we began to see the doors opening for a satellite in Fayetteville, TN,  as well. Dr. Sarah Thelen had contacted us about providing lactation support to her patients in Fayetteville. Meanwhile, Kelly Clements, another one of our IBCLC's who happens to live up that way and whose husband teaches in Fayetteville, said she would be interested in working with Dr. Thelen to make sure those moms and babies got the support they need. Dr. Thelen was happy to make space available in her office for our Fayetteville satellite which is also open by appointment. Kelly will see moms in the office or wherever they need to be seen. Like the Madison satellite, the Fayetteville satellite serves as a pick-up point for items the mothers have purchased through the Huntsville store.

Kelly will be coordinating with a LaLecheLeague leader in Fayetteville to offer a support group for moms in the area, and we will post details on our Facebook page under Events. She also has breast pumps and baby scales available to rent. For more information or to schedule a consult with Kelly, call 256-529-2445.
