Birth Latch Love
Welcome to the private practice of Amy Kesavan, MSN, RN, IBCLC Lactation Consultant
As an IBCLC (International Board of Lactation Consultant), I help new mothers establish and maintain the ability to feed their baby human milk. However, this process, while natural, is different with every child and for many women there are challenges which are difficult to figure out on your own without the assistance of a trained professional.
This is your personal experience between you and your baby, so you can’t compare it to anyone else. That is why each home visit will address your personal breastfeeding goals and help you to meet your individual expectations. The techniques you learn during your consultation will be personalized to the relationship between you and your infant. From providing insight into the biology behind the process to helping you be able to feed in various positions, your visit will result in the knowledge and understanding you need for a healthy and comfortable latch that benefits both mother and child.
During your in-home visit, you receive a comprehensive consultation and feeding assessment in a private location where you and your baby can feel comfortable and relaxed. Each consultation will address the some or all of the following key components of a healthy breastfeeding experience:
Mother and infant anatomy
Milk production and transfer
Newborn suck reflex
Troubleshooting causes of pain during breastfeeding
Measuring pre- and post-feeding weight
Discussing weight gain and indicators that your baby is thriving on the milk supply that you are providing
Dealing with issues like clogged ducts or mastitis
Feeding cues and scheduling feeding
Any questions that you have about feeding your baby
This is all so important because when there is less stress surrounding lactation, we are able to focus on growing and loving our family.
