What happens in a consult? Will I need more than one visit?
During an initial consultation, I do a full examination & history of the mother, the baby & breast-feeding This provides me with as much information as I can get to ensure we have all factors that can impact breastfeeding taken into consideration.
I help as needed, give suggestions to help improve feeding, a summary of my assessment and action a breastfeeding success plan. I make any referrals to others as needed with an explanation of the benefits & objective of the referrals.
I send a follow up email with a written summary of the consult plus any relevant handouts or link. I am then available via phone or email for follow up questions or assessment and changes of plans if the original plan is not working as planned.
I do my best to give as much information in the first visit, to limit repeat visits. There are always going to be more complex cases that require repeat visits. The follow up visit are assessed and charged accordingly & the rate can be prorated on the time needed.
New package available! Tongue Tie Package
Oral restrictions (more commonly known as tongue ties) can be confusing, frustrating and overwhelming. In my clinical experience, the dyads who share positive breastfeeding with tongue tie experiences are those that have support from beginning to end & a plan that makes sense and takes all then factors into play. Sometimes tongue ties cause a pile of problems. While it is the tongue tie that is an issue, the problems it created need just as much attention, if not more attention as fixing the tongue tie. An IBCLC can be crucial to the success of ongoing breastfeeding. I have created a tongue tie package to help better meet the needs of families navigating breastfeeding with oral restrictions. • Initial visit. This is like every initial breastfeeding consult. A plan will be created together. We will identify concerns, outline strategies & expectations and discuss timelines beyond that. • 30 minute telephone visit. Once you have an appointment booked for a revision, we will discuss what to expect during the appointment and expectations afterwards. We will review the plan that was made and assess improvements. • I will attend your appointment as a support person. This is typically an hour-long appointment. I will be there to support you with breastfeeding after the revision. • Post-revision visit. This visit will take place 3-5 days post revision. We will discuss the revision, after care, additional exercises for successful breastfeeding, & re-assess breastfeeding. We will identify any remaining or new concerns. • 30 minute phone call within 2 weeks of the revision. • ongoing email support. $450
