Lactation Consultationsfeeding

Scheduling a lactation consultation is the most effective way to get the support you need to breastfeed successfully. Consultations are provided in the privacy of your own home and initial consultations take 2-3 hours. Each consultation includes:

  • A full medical history of mother and baby, including health and hormonal issues, birth and breastfeeding experience
  • Evaluations of latch and milk transfer and/or pumping evaluation
  • Assessment of infant oral and structural anatomy
  • Education about typical infant behavior
  • Plenty of time to address questions and concerns
  • Referrals to other health care providers and community resources
  • A written, customized plan of care designed to meet your breastfeeding goals, including links, studies, and information sheets on relevant topics
  • Insurance documents to submit for reimbursement
  • A comprehensive report sent to your health care provider(s)
  • Follow-up phone and email support
