Support When and Where You Need It Most...
Always have your baby with you for a scheduled home visit, partners and other support people are welcome!
Home visits may be a good option for parents who prefer a more private setting or who find it challenging to make it to an office or group.
Lactation consultants can often spend more time exploring problems and individually tailoring recommendations in a private setting than in a group setting.
During Your Visit
In a home visit I provide support and guidance to help you feed your baby more comfortably and to help your baby feed more effectively. During a home visit I may :
Review positioning, latch and normal baby feeding patterns.
Help you to refine your technique, read your baby's cues, and recognize when your baby is feeding effectively.
If milk supply is a concern, we will also discuss ways to increase milk production.
If the birth-parent has any concerns about infant feeding options or hormone therapy considerations, I will gladly work with you to navigate a post-partum plan.
After your home visit, I may :
Provide a summary of discussions/recommendations from the consultation.
Create a written plan to help you meet your goals.
Follow-up by telephone.
Fax any necessary information to you or your baby's MD, Midwife, Nurse Practitioner, or other allied healthcare professional.
An initial home visit typically lasts approximately 1½ hours. Some parents schedule a follow-up visit. I am supportive of your goal for our visit and hope to help you achieve independence and comfort when feeding your baby.
