CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT IN NEW YORK AND CONNECTICUT

No two breastfeeding experiences are alike. Each child faces unique challenges. So whether you are a first-time mom or already have a large family, a private in-home visit from a lactation consultant can help you address lactation challenges you are facing and support forming a special bond with your new baby.

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 following key components of a healthy breastfeeding experience:

  • Mother and infant anatomy

  • Milk production and transfer

  • Newborn suck reflex

  • Troubleshooting possible causes of pain during lactation or 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

  • Proper pumping

  • Feeding cues and scheduling feeding

  • Any questions that you have about feeding your baby

MEET YOUR BREASTFEEDING GOALS

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.

In-home visits are $200. A typical session lasts 90-120 minutes. By the end of your visit, you will have a customized care plan and be more confident in your ability to reach your breastfeeding goals.  I do not accept insurance.
