Helping Mothers Feel Well
About Hilary Jacobson
Hilary Jacobson is a mother of four, a Certified Holistic Lactation Consultant and Certified Hypnotherapist with special studies in Nutrition, Mindfulness, Medical Support, Trauma and Pain Management. She is the author of Mother Food and Healing Breastfeeding Grief.
When events around fertility, pregnancy, birth and/or breastfeeding are difficult, women often feel stuck in a web of confusing and painful emotions such as sadness, loss and isolation.
I work with mothers through the three stages of healing using talk therapy and relaxation techniques along with hypnotherapy and other modalities as appropriate. Call for more information.
Times and Fees
I generally suggest three sessions.
Sessions are scheduled at 11 am and 1 pm Pacific Standard Time. If needed (babysitters, time-zones), evenings can be scheduled.
Sessions are approximately 60 minutes.
No insurance is accepted.
A sliding scale is available to mothers. Call for more information.
Soothing Emotional Pain
“When I read Hilary’s book Breastfeeding Grief, I felt like someone was speaking my mind for the first time about the pain I suffered. When I did my first session with Hilary she got right to the root of the problem, and the pain significantly shifted. Hilary found a way to guide me into a deep and almost primal attachment again with my child, in a way that no other Doctor, midwife, therapist, or healer seemed to be able to understand. Hilary knows so much about pregnancy, babies, food, health, culture AND life— Try a session with her if you are looking for someone smart to help you in a concrete and meaningful way move forward from pain and confusion.” – E.L.

Brain and Heart
“My brain and heart healed tremendously through this work. I feel a lot stronger now and am loving being a mom to my baby girl. I highly recommend Hilary to anyone who has gone through a traumatic birth and/or dealing with milk issues.” – J.H. – Oregon
Finally Feeling Better
“The sessions with Hilary changed my life. I was in a deep depression before I saw her. I wasn’t able to breastfeed my baby due to many health issues. So my life was dedicated to pumping and trying to build my milk supply. Yet I was so devastated to not be able to feed my baby it was taking over my life. I was angry. I was embarrassed. I felt inadequate. All I could do was cry. I would cry multiple times a day. I felt so out of control. And then I saw Hilary. I will never forget our first session together. It was profound. It literally changed my outlook on life. And I haven’t cried since then. After several sessions, I continued to feel so much calmer and more grounded. And I am a much better mother for my son because of it. Hilary understood everything I was going through and we were able to process it in a way that I could let go of the pain and move on to enjoy the pleasures of being a mother. I will forever be grateful for my experience with Hilary and highly recommend it to anyone who is going through a tough time.” – A.V. Oregon
