HOME VISITS


Lactation consultations take place in the privacy and comfort of your home. Visits generally last 1 ½-2 hours. A consultation includes a general health and birth history, assessment of the mother’s breasts, assessment of the infant’s general health and oral anatomy, and a feeding observation. We review positioning and latch on techniques. We confirm the amount of milk your baby gets by using a specialized, highly accurate baby scale. Together we develop a plan to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals. A copy of the plan is sent to your baby’s doctor and to your health care provider. Telephone follow up is included.

Follow up visits are available if needed.

Payment is due by cash or check at the time of the visit. We will provide you with a receipt that you can use to seek insurance reimbursement. No guarantees are made for insurance reimbursement. For specific coverage details, call your insurance provider.

Breastfeeding can be a deeply satisfying and rewarding experience benefiting the whole family. For some women the nursing relationship proceeds smoothly. Other mothers may face challenges that cause difficulty with breastfeeding and may lead to untimely weaning. Breastfeeding problems are easier to solve when help is sought early.
