Some insurance companies will only cover lactation consultations from a nurse, doctor or midwife, regardless of their lactation training. You need to check with your provider individually.
My first appointment with you includes a detailed feeding assessment, baby’s oral assessment (if necessary), mother’s breast assessment (if necessary). Together, we create a plan, and you will be sent detailed notes afterwards, clarifying the steps of the specific care-plan we create. Learn more…
A discussion and re-assessment of your and your baby’s needs, a chance to ask more questions, to adjust your care plan and/or exercises to move further towards your goal.
A full new care plan will be created for you if necessary.
For first-time parents or fifth-time parents looking for a different journey this time… Learn what you can do now to help you and your baby during the first days. We can prepare a plan together to assist you in achieving your breastfeeding goals. Learn more…
Bottles: For those who need/choose to combine breastfeeding and bottle feeding. Create a plan for babies who are refusing bottles, and learn the specific ways to protect breastfeeding while also offering bottles.
Pumping: Get more milk out with less effort! Questions about flange sizing, different pumps, boosting milk output, returning to work, milk storage, elimintating pain, etc.
Solids: Do you have questions about when and how to start solids? Whether they are they eating enough, and how milk will fit in? What about allergies? Learn about baby’s nutritional needs, true readiness, and what would be the best approach for YOU. I can provide nutritional support for all children up to the age of two years.
Book a session to clarify your feelings and to create a plan that will help you reduce or stop breastfeeding. This includes gentle weaning strategies at any age, as well as emergency/rapid weaning, weaning from pumping, or any other area of weaning support you feel you may need.
