Breastfeeding & Lactation Counseling in your Home
An in-home lactation counseling is an opportunity to receive private, individualized support for your breastfeeding relationship in the comfort of your own home. This is especially helpful when you have a newborn, but can be great for all situations because your home is where real life breastfeeding happens most. Please don’t feel that you need to do anything special to prepare for my arrival. You, your home, and your baby should feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
Your individualized Breastfeeding Counseling visit may include:
Education about infant cues
Advice on positioning to maximize comfort, intuition and reflexes
Assistance with baby’s latch
Observation and assessment of an entire nursing session
Exploration of nursing challenges and solutions
Demonstration of techniques and tools for improving breastfeeding
Demonstration of the use of feeding equipment (including breast pump), if necessary
Recommendations, and any necessary referrals
One Phone or email follow-up. Breastfeeding Consultation: $60 flat rate per visit.
