-My service area includes: Oceanside, Camp Pendleton, Fallbrook, Carlsbad, Bonsall, Vista, San Marcos, and Encinitas.

Other areas I will visit outside of my service area include: Escondido, Temecula, Poway, Del Mar, Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano, Murrieta, and Miramar and others! I do have a surcharge for traveling to these cities. 

When selecting an appointment for visits outside of my service area, Please choose the (out of service area) option for the type of appoint you would like to book. This will ensure that I have enough time for travel in between appointments and not be late picking up the kids from school! 

Virtual and Phone Appointments are also available wherever you are! 

-YES!

-Before booking send me a message or call about discounts. 

Virtual appointments ( Telehealth) are an option when you live to far for me to come see you. They are great for asking questions about breastfeeding and lactation. Whether its a prenatal visit, pumping consult, or feeding concerns, video chat is a way for us to connect. 

Virtual appointments have more convent times such as weekends and nights available upon request. 

Since I cannot physically exam you or your baby that does limit what I can do. But Telehealth can be a valuable resource! 

I use a HIPPA secure platform for all virtual appointments. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
