Are you having difficulties breastfeeding? Not sure how it is going? Do you have specific concerns regarding breastfeeding that you need assistance with? Some examples of this would be if you have sore nipples, latch difficulties, returning to work, thrush or mastitis, and low milk supply.
In today’s busy life finding support with breastfeeding can be challenging. Even though breastfeeding is a natural act, for many women it does not come easy. Problems may come up and having a skilled, experienced, and licensed professional can make all the difference in getting off to a great start.
Why have a lactation consultant come to your home?
Because you just had a baby and the best place is to remain in the comfort of your own home. I can use your chairs, couch, bed, pillows, and equipment to make sure you are set up to nurse your baby comfortably.
What happens during a breastfeeding visit?
At a home visit, I make sure that everything is set up for your success. An initial visit includes a physical exam of mom and baby as it pertains to breastfeeding. A pregnancy and birth history is taken and we discuss milk supply and breastfeeding basics. A check of the baby’s sucking, mouth, head, and neck is done and then I observe a feeding. We can then work on improving and problem solving any difficulties you may be having. By the end of the visit, we have made realistic goals and a plan for improvement and success.
Why have a breastfeeding consult virtually?
There are many reasons a virtual consult may be a good option. You may want to limit contact with people for the safety of you and your baby. You may possibly be located in an area that makes home visits challenging. or maybe your problems just need more information than hands-on. Whatever your reason, it IS possible to evaluate anatomy, latch, and how a breastfeeding is going virtually. This is a great option to have!
Consults are available in your home or virtually via facetime, skype, or zoom.
