Helping Mother's Have A Positive Breastfeeding Experience
Are you struggling to breastfeed? Do you have sore nipples and a hard time to get baby to latch. Are you worried about having low milk supply and are looking for help and professional breastfeeding support? If so, you've come to the right place.
Take a deep breath, it's ok, we can help. We have learned there is almost always a learning curve to breastfeeding for most moms and babies. If you face challenges, it is important to not wait and ask for help right away.
Over the years we have learned that moms and babies benefit most from private in-home lactation visits. To have an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant(IBCLC) come to your home to asses the problem and work with you to come up with a realistic plan to correct the issue, please call or send us a message.
Breastfeeding Initial Visit (~90 min)
What happens at a visit will depend on the type of challenges and concerns you are having. To give you an idea, most visits include the following:
Mom and baby's medical history
Weight check for baby (before and after feeding)
Examine baby's mouth
Examining mom's breast
Latching and positioning assessment
Nutritional info for mom
Coming up with a care plan
A report to mother's physician and/or baby's pediatrician
As needed: assessing pump techniques & flange sizes, teaching of hand expression, usage of nipple shields, etc.
After the visit, you will have unlimited text, phone or email follow up for the next 2 weeks. Breastfeeding problems can be complicated and may take some time to work things out. That is why you will have free access to me for 2 weeks so that we can work together to improve your situation!
