My services are designed to assist with the broad spectrum of changing needs, from birth till weaning.
At-home Lactation Consultation
One-on-one consultation in the comfort of your home - and sofa.
The first-time visit takes approximately 2 hours and includes a review of your medical history, pregnancy, birth and your baby's weight records. I will examine your breasts and your baby's mouth, if necessary.
During our meeting, you will practice breastfeeding so I can see your breastfeeding style and how I can best support you If needed.
At the end of our meeting, I will provide a step by step plan for you to easily follow.
Email Support/secure messaging is included after the initial consultation for one week, for basic questions and review care plan.
A minimum of one follow-up visit is strongly recommended to evaluate the progress. Sometimes as one problem is addressed and resolves, another problem reveals itself.
A follow-up visit includes additional email/secure messaging support for two weeks.
Initial visit $315 / 2 hours ($415 for twins as this visit takes longer)
Follow up visit $265 / 75 min ($350 for twins)
Back to Work/School Consultation
Maternity leave is a wonderful time to establish a special connection between mother and baby and get a great routine going. But can you continue when you return to work or school? the answer is absolutely yes - with the right preparation.
In this 2 hour meeting we will discuss how to best prepare for your return to work or school, how to choose the right breast pump for your needs and use it effectively, how much milk your baby will need while you are away, how to maintain your milk supply and how to make breastfeeding "work" in the workplace.
$315 / 2 hours
Prenatal Breastfeeding Classes
In a 2 hours meeting, I will provide you with all the basic information needed to start off on the right foot (or right breast) for a good beginning to your breastfeeding experience.
Classes focus on topics such as the supply and demand, positions and latch, what is "enough" milk and how to maintain your supply, understanding normal baby behavior as well as other common concerns.
