How does a lactation consultation work?
Lactation consultations are a comprehensive evaluation of your breastfeeding situation. I will assess all the aspects of your journey and provide you with a customized care plan for you and baby going forward.
Home visits typically last about 1.5-2 hours for the initial visit and about 1 hour for follow-up visits. During this time, we take a full history, assess a feeding and/or pumping sessions, and observe a weighted feed. We will work together to develop a plan for feeding your baby and meet YOUR breastfeeding goals.
Prior to your scheduled appointment, I will send you an email with intake and consent forms to complete, so I have an understanding of your goals and questions prior to meeting. This also allows us to get right to the evaluation, without focusing on paperwork.
Following your appointment, I will continue to follow-up with you by phone, text, and email to evaluate how well your care plan is working and make additional suggestions.
