Services with NSV are offered virtually. One of my goals is to get into the homes of all the families I serve. Another one of my goals is to see and support the natural environment that parents and their babies are in everyday. I want to see where and how you feed your baby in your home so I know how to best help you. The natural home environment is where you and your baby are everyday and going out to a feeding clinic or hospital is less effective. I know because I did that for 10 years. And I know the home environment and how much more effective I am in the home. I wish I could come to each of your homes in person. Unfortunately that is not realistic but thankfully with the technology we have today it is easier than ever for me to “be in your home” and give you the best, most appropriate service and support to help you and your baby succeed. There are actually a lot of reasons virtual therapy is more advantageous but I’m just going to give you one more. The biggest goal in feeding therapy is to reduce stress and anxiety for parents and baby. I have noticed that when I sit in front of parents and babies, they feel pressured and anxious which of course does not help the feeding situation. When I am on screen, I have noticed parents and babies feel less stressed and pressured and therefore babies eat better and we have more success. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon!
