Initial Consult - Newborn
A great way for new parents to get breastfeeding off to a good start. Breastfeeding may be going well or there may be some struggles. You don't have to be having issues to schedule this consultation - think of it as a breastfeeding class with your baby in your arms! We can talk about newborn feeding cues, various breastfeeding positions and how to know your baby is getting enough milk etc. This consult is done in the comfort of your home.
Initial Consult- Breastfeeding Difficulties
If you are having challenges or difficulties with breastfeeding please do not hesitate to schedule this consultation. A full medical history will be taken as well as an examination of the baby to address the issues occurring. If pumping is part of the care plan we will go over pump settings, parts and flange sizes. We will build a care plan together so you know exactly what to work on after the consult. Topics that may be touched upon include: painful latch, clicking or slurping at the breast or bottle, tongue/ lip ties, gassy or fussy babies, damaged or bleeding nipples and infant struggles with milk flow. This consult is done in the comfort of your home.
This consultation can be done during any time of your pregnancy. I will take a complete health history as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have about your breastfeeding journey. You will be given a care plan with recommendations and resources. This consultation may help if you have flat or inverted nipples, difficulty breastfeeding a prior child, history of low milk supply, health issues (ie PCOS, infertility or diabetes) or if you’re pregnant with multiples.This consultation can take place in your home or virtually.

In home or virtual, this appointment will review the previous plan of care and as a team, we will develop a new sustainable plan based on a new assessment during this appointment.
This is a general breastfeeding education and support consultation. I can help you with latch, positioning and calming a fussy baby. Reviewing your breast pump, nipple shield or other breastfeeding devices are included as well.
