Breastfeeding should be fun & enjoyable but that doesn't mean it is easy. It is normal to need some help getting started or sorting out concerns.
Regarding COVID-19 I am providing IN HOME consults effective May 12. Screening will occur at time of booking and again upon arrival to your home. I will be wearing a mask as a precaution. I AM providing phone and video services for people who would rather that option or do not pass the screening. Phone and Video may to seem ineffective, but the method works quite well and is a promising way to help whatever breastfeeding concerns you are having right now
The breastfeeding exploration session is for you if there is a specific concern, challenge or question that is creating a barrier to your breastfeeding journey being a positive experience.
Are you finding latching to be difficult or painful?
Are you finding positioning to be challenging?
Do your nipples hurt?
Are they blistered or bleeding?
Is your baby seemingly frustrated at the breast?
Are you worried you baby is not getting enough milk?
Are you worried your baby is feeding too much or too little?
Are you concerned about low supply?
Does everything about breastfeeding seem like it is just going wrong?
This session will provide you clarity about your unique breastfeeding situation and provide tools and strategies to help resolve concerns. During this time I will do a full examination & history of the mother, the baby & breastfeeding. This provides me with the information needed about the factors that can impact breastfeeding so it can all be taken into consideration.
I assist as needed, provide suggestions to help improve feeding while I observe, provide 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.
Within the client portal there will be a written summary of the consultation plus any relevant protocols as handouts or links.
