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.

$45

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.

TRAVEL

If my travel is more than 25 miles to reach your home, there will be a $25 travel fee to cover gas and time.
