The decision to breastfeed your baby is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your child and to yourself. But, you know what?...sometimes it's hard. I get it. I've totally been there myself and I've also helped support thousands of other breastfeeding mamas who have felt exactly the same way.
Yes, breastfeeding is natural. Although that doesn't necessarily mean it always comes naturally. But did you know that the right kind of education and support during your breastfeeding journey can make all the difference to a successful outcome? It's true!
Need Breastfeeding Help???
No worries! I'm happy to help with whatever breastfeeding concern may you have. Whether it's sore nipples, trouble with the latch, concerns about milk supply or baby's weight, or any other number of breastfeeding issues, I'm here for you!
If there's one thing I know, it's that as a new mama you're going to spend a lot of time running around to different appointments during the first few weeks and months after baby arrives. Alright, maybe I know a few more things than that ;)...but, that is why my goal is to make things as easy as possible and bring the consultation to you, right in the comfort of your own home!
In-home Breastfeeding Consultations
Why leave the comfort of your own home when I can come to you? By seeing you in your own environment it not only helps you as a new mom, but me as a lactation consultant as well since I'm able to address concerns that might not necessarily come up during an office visit. Some of the reasons clients see me is due to sore nipples, latching/feeding difficulties, concerns with milk supply, weight loss/slow weight gain in baby, engorgement, tongue-ties, breast pain, general education & reassurance, and so much more.
In-home Consultations include:
- Pre- & Post-feeding weights
- Health & breastfeeding history (mom & baby)
- Assessment of mother's breasts
- Clinical evaluation of baby's feeding
- Personalized care plan to support your breastfeeding goals
- Lactation report submitted to your healthcare providers (if desired)
- Unlimited text support throughout the duration of your breastfeeding journey**
**PLEASE NOTE: Any questions that require an additional full, medical-based assessment in order to be addressed are unable to be answered via the unlimited text support service & a follow-up consultation is recommended.
Online/Phone Breastfeeding Consultations
Not every breastfeeding concern requires physical assistance. Many times just being able to sift through the information you might have heard or read about in order to come up with a personalized plan to your specific situation is all you need. Some breastfeeding concerns that can be addressed online or over the phone include:
- going back to work
- introducing solids
- transitioning baby off nipple shield
- bottle refusal
- plugged ducts & mastitis
- food sensitivities in the breastfed baby
- and more...
***Please note: Any breastfeeding concerns where baby's weight (i.e.; loss, gain, etc.) is a concern should be addressed in-person with a qualified professional who can assess baby's feeding and use pre- & post-feeding weights as part of the assessment process.
