    Lactation Services


    Need breastfeeding help?  Timely assistance and information can make a big difference. Some reasons moms seek help include:

    • Sore nipples/breast pain

    • Latch difficulties

    • Supply concerns

    • Weight gain concerns

    • Nursing twins

    • Health complications that may impact breastfeeding

    • Mom has concerns/questions

    Lactation consultations are conducted in-office or in-home.  This meeting is tailored to your needs and includes the following: 

    • A review of your history

    • In-depth discussion of current concerns 

    • Baby weight check if needed 

    • Assessment of baby and breasts as needed

    • Assessment of a nursing session

    • Care plan

    • Referrals and/or educational materials as needed

    • Detailed report of visit faxed to your pediatrician or other physician as needed

    • Education on technique(s) as needed   

    • Short-term or disposable supplies/equipment if recommended to help with specific issues  (provided at no additional expense) 

    • I offer phone support (by same-day appointment if needed), or email support (through our patient portal) for the 4 weeks following your initial visit.

    • A superbill receipt will be provided at each visit.  This can be used for those seeking insurance reimbursement.

    Depending on your unique situation, one or more follow-up in-home visits may be recommended.

    Phone/Skype Initial Consultations are available, with limited scope, for those requesting this.
