LACTATION CONSULTATION IN YOUR HOME
I can offer in home support to help you meet your personal breastfeeding goals. I will come to your home to observe breastfeeding, assist you in improving latch and problem solve whatever issue you may be having. Full consultation includes:
· Evaluation of history related to breastfeeding
· Feeding observation and assessment
· Care plan
· Telephone follow-up as needed, until the problem is resolved.
Initial full lactation consultation is scheduled for 60-90 minutes, although sometimes it may take longer to work through more complicated issues.
$90 for up to 90 minutes, moms who have taken a prenatal class from me qualify for a discount
FOLLOW-UP CONSULTATION IN YOUR HOME
In some cases, one or more follow-up visits may be necessary to measure progress, improve latch, deal with related issues or provide confirmation of improvement (weight gain, milk transfer, etc.). On initial care plan, I may suggest a follow-up appointment.
TELEPHONE/SKYPE LACTATION CONSULTATION
If a new client has a brief breastfeeding related question, I will be happy to speak at no charge. If a phone discussion requires extra time or a current client has developed a new problem (not related to the initial consult) and does not warrant a home consultation, we can schedule an official telephone or Skype consultation.
If my travel is more than 25 miles to reach your home, there will be a $25 travel fee to cover gas and time.
