Pregnant belly

Prenatal Consult

The best time to learn about breastfeeding, bottle feeding and lactation, is before baby is here! During a prenatal consult we will review your health history to identify any concerns that may impact breastfeeding and lactation and develop a plan to optimize your breastfeeding start.

Initial Lactation Consult

Initial lactation consults are individualized and tailored to the needs and goals of your family. We will work with you, using a whole-body lens, to identify the source(s) of your breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and lactation challenges and then develop a plan with you to help you reach your goals.

Mother Baby Bonding

Bottle Consult

During this consult we will work on optimizing your baby's bottle feeding and develop a plan to get your baby's feeding back on track. Baby's latch on the bottle and quality of feeding will be assessed via a whole-body lens. We will then work together to develop a plan so that feeding can be an enjoyable experience for the whole family.

Pumping Consult

During a pumping consult we will complete a flange fitting, learn about pump settings, learn how to maximize pump output, trouble shoot any problems (such as pain and/or low pump output), and make a plan for pumping and/or starting back to work.

Follow-Up Consult

Virtual Sessions

You'd be surprised by how much we can achieve during a virtual consult! During a virtual consult we will conduct a thorough review of your health and lactation history, work on positioning and latch as needed, and a create a breastfeeding/bottle feeding/pumping plan tailored to your family's needs. Virtual appointments are not appropriate or recommended for every situation and may require in-person follow up. Feel free to contact me before booking, if you want to make sure that a virtual session is appropriate for your situation.
