BREASTFEEDING
HELP

Hiyeeeee.  Your baby is new to this, and you may be too.  You need a kind, compassionate, real-life, guilt free lactation expert to help navigate through your lactation goals, needs, roadblocks, challenges, etc.  

An International Board Certified Lactaion Consultant (IBCLC) will partner with you to develop realistic and sustainable lactation goals that you can stick with for the long haul. The IBCLC will guide and motivate you with evidence-based strategies to help you with your  lactation goals, challenges, problems, support and confidence.

Research shows that meeting regularly with an expert in lactation increases your chance of having a successful lactation experience. You are more likely to continue lactating if you obtain support from a IBCLC or CLS than from a professional such as a labor & delivery nurse, OB/GYN, Midwife, Doula, or Pediatrician.

Please refer to the drop-down boxes below to see our specialites.  If you are unsure contact us to let us know how we can help you.  If we are not able to help you then we will point you in the right direction. We have an amazing network of resources and a referral list to share with you!

VISITS ARE COVERED BY INSURANCE

Prenatal Lactation Visit

This visit is a deep dive that teaches the essentials to be successful with breastfeeding. You will learn everything you need to know to get off to a good start.  You will have hands on learning by practicing to latch and position a baby with a breastfeeding doll. I also provide a list of breastfeeding must-haves to add to your baby registry. This is your chance to prepare and ask questions before the baby’s arrival.

Visit Duration: 60 minutes

Follow-Up Lactation Visit

Sometimes additional visits are needed to address new concerns, re-evaluate previous issues, or monitor your baby’s growth.  We will  revisit your breastfeeding plan to make adjustments as needed. The visit will include a weight check of the baby, assessment and observation of a full feeding or pumping session and address any questions or concerns.

Visit Duration: 45-60 minutes

Postnatal Lactation Visit

This visit will include an in-depth assessment of the mother and baby’s health history and delivery including an assessment of mother’s breast, evaluation of the baby’s sucking, muscle tone, and tongue function, assessing and observing a complete infant feed at breast or bottle, and address any questions or concerns.   A personalized plan of care will be provided with an open door to reach out for any further help.

Visit Duration: 60-90 minutes

Pumping and Storing Milk

This visit you will understand how to use your pump, have a flange fitting, learn about collecting and storage of milk. You will learn when to pump, how long to pump, and how often.  This is beneficial for those at risk for pre-term delivery, returning to work, planning travel, or even for the occasional mother/baby separation time. We will go over any questions or concerns you many have.

Visit Duration: 45-60 minutes
