Each Lactation Consultation provides a full assessment of breastfeeding and baby. This includes a review of medical history, latch evaluation, assessment of your infant's growth pattern and measurement of milk transfer.
A plan unique to you and your infant will be created and a follow-up by telephone is included in the visit.

Preparing for Breastfeeding Success
As you prepare to meet your baby, there can be times that meeting with a lactation consultant to build a plan specific to your body and needs can prepare you for breastfeeding success. This one hour private session includes history and physical assessment and plan designed unique for you and your family. This is the class for you if you have risk factors for low milk supply such as diabetes, PCOS, breast reduction, preparing for a cesarean delivery, have flat/inverted nipples or a history of not meeting your breastfeeding goals.
60 Minutes $50
