I accompany you on your breastfeeding journey from pregnancy to weaning.
I have experience with breastfeeding preterm babies, babies with challenges to latch, painful breastfeeding, induced lactation for adoption/surrogacy, pumping and hand expressing, low milk supply and many more.
In a first visit we will spend about 1.5 hours together. I will get to know you and your baby, we will talk about what you are struggling with and how breastfeeding has been going so far. I will examine you and your baby, including baby’s oral anatomy. I will observe a full breastfeed and make suggestions for help with positioning, latch and comfort. I will weigh your baby and measure breastmilk transfer to check how much milk your baby drank. At the end of the consult we will develop a care plan that works for you.
If you are struggling financially get your breastfeeding support immediately, pay later and payment plans for urgent breastfeeding consults are available on request. Talk with me.
In a follow-up visit we will spend 1 hour together. I will observe another full breastfeed. We will talk about the progress and make sure the problem could be resolved. If the problem is not resolved we will talk about what worked and did not work and come up with a follow-on care plan.
