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 & breastfeeding. 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 assist as needed, give 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.
I follow up within the client portal with a written summary of the consultation plus any relevant protocols as handouts or links. I am then available via phone or text support within the client portal for follow up questions or assessment and changes of plans if the original plan is not working as planned for 2 weeks.
There is always going to be more complex cases that require repeat visits.
