in-office or in your home
Our skilled and experienced International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) will work one-on-one with you. We listen to your concerns and goals, collect pertinent history and observe a feeding. Our goal is to offer support and develop a care plan that suits the unique needs of you and your baby. As necessary, your IBCLC will also examine your breasts and your baby's mouth in relation to your breastfeeding concern(s). Prenatal appointments are also available.
We help with breastfeeding challenges and concerns, including:
Low milk supply
Slow weight gain
Concerns of tongue-tie/lip-tie
Babies and toddlers of any age are welcome!
Appointments are usually about 1 hour long (or about 1.5 hours in the case of twins). Depending on your needs and the IBCLC's availability, more time may be available.
