My motto is #grayparenting: being okay in a culture of extremes. I have made it my goal to provide women with accurate information to help them make decisions once baby arrives and to be okay with their decisions. Follow me on my website to receive tons of free information on breastfeeding and mindset work to becoming a new mom. I live with my 3 kids and husband in Rochester. I am available for in person and virtual lactation consultations.

Janine Kellogg, Certified Lactation Educator Counselor, Birth & Pospartum Doula 
Spherical Birth & Baby

Welcome to Spherical Birth & Baby. I am Janine Kellogg. I provide all around care for the whole family; pregnancy through postpartum.  My goal is to make sure that during this adventure you feel supported and empowered to make informed decisions that are right for your body and your family. I completed my birth and postpartum training through DONA International and my lactation training through University of California- San Diego.  I feel that evidence based lactation support is critical to the success of breastfeeding, especially during those first few weeks postpartum. I am available for private/ small group breastfeeding education classes, as well as support after baby has arrived. I provide in-home visits and am often available for same day support. When you feel things aren’t going well, time is of the essence. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.
