Consultations

I am available for virtual consultations as well as home consultations at this time and I am committed to helping you in the best way I can. Before meeting you in your home, I will do a COVID-19 screening for everyone’s safety.

I offer personalized, consistent guidance, with care that is tailored to you and your baby, whatever your needs may be. From the moment we connect, I hope to be your “go to” breastfeeding support until you and your baby wean. I want you to experience consistent, reliable and supportive assistance. When I commit to you, I am available to the best of my ability to be there for you as much as you need me.

What to expect when we meet prenatally:

Meeting with me before your baby is born is ideal! It gives us a chance to talk about what to expect when it comes to breastfeeding, as well as any personal breastfeeding questions you may have. So many mamas I meet with, tell me that they wish they had met me sooner…so we will establish a connection before your baby arrives, as this gives us a jumpstart on tackling any issues that may occur after your delivery. Small obstacles are easiest to overcome!

What to expect when we meet postnatally:

At your first home breastfeeding consultation, I will take your history (if I haven’t had the good fortune of meeting you prenatally), by listening and gathering information from you about your breastfeeding experience. I will observe you and your baby while breastfeeding, and support you the best way I can, in finding a comfortable position and effective latch. I will answer all your questions, and based on my observations and your history, assess what I think the challenge is, and then talk with you to come up with a supportive and effective plan, that YOU feel positive about. Consultation length is typically 1.5 hours in-home and 1 hour virtually, depending on how the feeding goes and how much support you are in need of at the time.

Transitioning To Solids Consultation Package – $100

Includes 1 virtual consultation and one 15 minute follow up phone call

I recommend that this session be taken at approximately 5 months (before your baby starts solids), but it can be taken anytime you need support with feeding food to your baby. During this 1 hour consultation, tailored to you and your baby’s stage, we will cover ideal foods to offer, texture progression, timing, importance of iron and sources best for babies, how to complement breastfeeding with solid foods, introduction of cups and other milks, constipation, how to introduce allergenic foods,  as well as any other questions you have. Your follow up phone call is 3-7 days after your initial consultation.

Weaning Baby From Breast Consultation Package – $200

Includes 2 consultations and unlimited email/text support between your initial and subsequent visits:

Your first consultation will be virtual and approximately 1 hour. During this consultation we will discuss your goals and I will recommend safe, personalized strategies to reduce your milk supply and avoid complications such as blocked ducts and mastitis.  Your second virtual consultation will be 30 minutes and is recommended 7-10 days into your weaning process, to ensure the plan is working for you, but the timing is flexible and we can move this appointment depending on your plan.

There are no additional taxes. Payment is accepted via etransfer and is due prior to your first consultation. In some cases, my fees may be covered by insurance. I recommend contacting your carrier for details. Receipts with all my registration information will be provided.
