Prenatal Consultations & Education

Are you planning to breastfeed and looking to learn more about it? Maybe it’s not your first rodeo, and you’d like a different experience the second or third time ‘round. Perhaps you have a complicated medical history and need information about how that may impact your desire or ability to breastfeed your baby. If any of the above statements apply to you, you would benefit from a private prenatal consultation. During a prenatal consultation I will cover the basics of breastfeeding and how you and your baby can get off to the best possible start. The discussion will be very open and conversational geared toward your specific questions and concerns. I will come to your home and spend about 2-3 hours with you and your support person answering questions you probably didn’t even know that you had! You will learn and laugh along the way.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Benefits of Breastfeeding
  • Common Concerns
  • Anatomy and Physiology of Lactation
  • Elements to Establishing an Optimal Milk Supply
  • Latch On and Positioning Techniques
  • Normal Feeding Patterns and Infant Behaviors
  • How to Prepare for Baby’s Arrival
  • Breast Pumps 101
  • Q&A​​

Included with the service is a resource packet of educational materials and resources to reinforce what is covered during the consultation. Most families have questions hours, days or weeks after the consultation. I provide follow up by phone to address novel questions or concerns.

Payment is required at the time of service. I accept payment by cash, check, or credit/debit card.
