Private, In-home Lactation Consultation, Price: $200.00
During the initial home visit we will spend 1.5-2 hours together where the I will take a full medical history and birth story of the mother and baby, do a physical breast exam of the mother and a newborn exam, observe a feeding and develop a plan of care that feels reasonable and sustainable for you and your family. You will have access to me after the appointment for phone and text follow up and we will adjust the plan as needed. I will provide you with a written plan of care as well as a superbill for you to submit to insurance for reimbursement.
Follow up Consultation, Price: $150
If a follow-up visit is needed, it will consist of re-evaluating prior suggestions and addressing any other concerns of the mother.
Bottle Feeding Consultation, Price: $150.00
Ideally it’s best to wait and introduce a bottle once you have breastfeeding well established, usually around week 3. Whether your exclusively bottle feeding or plan to combine breastfeeding with bottle feeding, either with expressed breastmilk or formula, I can help you find the right bottle for your baby. Babies suck differently from the breast than they do from a bottle and each baby’s suck is unique. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to choosing a bottle for your baby. I will bring a variety of bottles and nipples to explore with your baby to find the right fit before you go out and purchase them. I will educate and demonstrate paced bottle feeding, discuss nipple flow, and correct latch which will help to minimize the transition between breast and bottle.
Private, In-home Consultation – visits usually last 2 hours.
Breastfeeding 101, Price: $100
Learn the basics of breastfeeding before you have your baby.
While your body is designed to produce breast milk without instructions, the art of breastfeeding and latching your baby on is something you need to learn. In days past women living in villages were taught by the sisterhood how to breastfeed their babies. In today’s world we often have never seen a breastfeeding baby up close until we are holding our own baby in our arms. We are often left wondering what to do with them. In this class I will teach you basics of breastfeeding from anatomy, what to expect in the hospital as well as your first few days at home with baby, benefits of breastfeeding for mom and baby, different nursing positions, how to achieve a deep latch, common concerns, how to avoid complications, nutrition for mom, nipple care, how to know your baby is getting enough milk, and more. Breastfeeding involves the entire immediate family, not just the mom who is breastfeeding. Education on breastfeeding and baby’s needs nutritionally at birth can be a valuable tool to assist a family to create the space and time needed for a successful breastfeeding path.
