We will begin working together during your pregnancy and continue on through the complex 4th trimester. During the Initial Consultation you and I will meet and discuss your breastfeeding goals, questions, concerns, and any specific cultural needs. We will also complete a short questionnaire that will help me determine how to best serve you. I encourage partners to attend this meeting as well.
I conduct the Prenatal Breastfeeding Class one-on-one with you and your partner in the comfort of your home. This class typically includes two 2-hour sessions. Additional family or friends are welcome to attend for a small fee. Each of the three Lactation Consultations take place in your home, with the initial consultation occurring in the place of birth, when possible. During consultations I will observe a feeding between mother and baby, evaluate the latch, suck, and milk transfer and make adjustments where needed. I will provide education on how to properly handle common hurdles such as infant positioning, engorgement, and night feeding.
This package also offers unlimited phone and email support. I welcome questions about feeding habits, infant nursing behavior, and any other concerns that typically plague a new breastfeeding mother.
