Services:

In-Clinic Lactation Consultation:

Clinic lactation consultations are scheduled for approximately 1-1.5 hours. We ask that your baby is hungry upon your arrival so that we may assess an entire nursing session. Babies are weighed before and after feeding to appropriately document intake. The goal is to help resolve issues associated with breastfeeding and to create a plan that works for each family to meet their breastfeeding goals. All care plans include follow-up care either by phone or in-person contact. Follow-up appointments usually take 1 hour and will be scheduled after initial appointment.

Telehealth opens up the option to virtually bring a Lactation Consultant home with you.  Virtual visits are very helpful in the case of sore nipples, poor latch, engorgement and many other issues.  If there is a concern that your baby isn’t getting enough milk, a virtual visit can be combined with a pediatric scale rental. Our platform is completely private and HIPPA compliant. At this time many insurance companies are honoring telehealth visits as a covered service.
