Your success is my passion
I am committed to helping you reach your goals and thrive!
My name is Farrell Topham and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and certified postpartum doula. I started this practice because I believe that all parents deserve to experience empowerment and confidence during their journey through pregnancy and postpartum.
As a lactation consultant, I give parents the practical guidance and care they need to achieve their feeding goals and thrive! I support the entire family’s physical and emotional needs so that the path into parenthood is a smooth and joyful transition. I believe that in addition to quality care from practitioners like myself, parents need a larger support network of role models and community. In my practice, I encourage community connection and advocacy through collaboration with local parent resources and mother’s groups such as Community Well, La Leche League, SF Birth Center, and Babywearing International.
In order to continue breastfeeding beyond the first 6 months of their child’s life, parents require access to support and preparation for integrating this commitment into their jobs and workplace environment. I prepare parents for transitioning back to work or school, and facilitate details like pumping, working with child care, referrals, and real life logistics. As a native San Franciscan, I am proud to work with a diverse group of mothers and support our LGBTQ families!
