What to expect at an in-home lactation consultation $200

 

A medical/health history (intake form) will be filled out prior to the appointment. After arriving and washing hands, I will sit down with you and your support team while you talk to me about your breastfeeding concerns. I usually start by asking "tell me about a typical day." After I listen to your story, we will go over anything of interest I found on your intake form. 

 

The next part all depends on my reason for being there- this initial consult is personally tailored to you and your baby's needs! A head to toe assessment on baby to include an oral functional assessment will be completed- I always ask permission before touching your baby.  I will observe a breastfeed, I am hands off and prefer you show me exactly what you have been doing.  I have a lactation weight scale that will tell us how much milk your baby has transferred.

 

After, I may offer suggestions, make on the spot adjustments that you feel comfortable with. A realistic care plan is made based off of our discussion and your goals. . You will receive this personalized care plan and everything else we talked about within 24hours.
