LACTATION CONSULTANT (IBCLC) 

NY and CT - Weekends Only

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

  • Breast refusal

  • 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

Visits are $250 and include an initial visit and two virtual follow-ups.  A typical initial session is broken into two parts: a brief virtual consultation for the first part and an in-home visit for the second part.  At the home visit, I will perform an oral assessment, weighted feed, observe a feeding, troubleshoot, and develop a lactation plan of care.   These two components of the Initial Consultation last between 90-120 minutes. By the end of this time, you will have a customized care plan and be more confident in your ability to reach your breastfeeding goals.  I offer two virtual follow-ups to my program.

 I do not accept insurance.  My desire is to create an on-going relationship with my clients.  I am supportive of mothers well beyond our first consultation.  My fee structure allows me to guide you along your breastfeeding journey from feeding to weaning.

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.
