Complete Care Package:
From prenatal to full post-partum support we want you to be as well prepared for your breastfeeding journey as possible. The complete care package including: a prenatal consultation, initial (post-partum) consultation, follow-up consultation, and unlimited weight checks and phone support is the best bargain to prepare you for complete lactation success.
We believe that ever breastfeeding relationship is unique. A personalized consultation will empower you to breastfeed your baby with confidence. Every family will be provided with a comprehensive evaluation, relevant evidence based information, helpful handouts, a personalized care plan and correspondence of your plan of care with your provider.
At Nourish Lactation Services we believe that knowledge is empowering. Whether you have specific concerns or just want to be well prepared for your breastfeeding journey, a prenatal consultation is a wonderful way to ease anxiety about breastfeeding and ensure your breastfeeding experience is off to a great start. Your lactation consultant will perform a comprehensive evaluation to anticipate your unique lactation needs. You will be provided with relevant evidence-based information, helpful handouts, a personalized care plan that will enable you to approach breastfeeding with confidence.
Follow up consultations may be helpful if you continue to have breastfeeding challenges. On-going support and close monitoring will give you confidence to meet your breastfeeding goals. During a follow-up we will discuss your progress since your prior appointment(s) and any new challenges that may have developed. You will be provided with relevant evidence-based information, helpful handouts, a personalized care plan and correspondence of your plan of care with your provider.
E-consultations are ideal for mothers who are comfortable with latch and positioning and have a healthy baby, but have questions that require the expertise of a board-certified lactation consultant. E-consultations are available by phone or secure video. A 30 minute e-consultation is a hassle free way to get the answers you need.
Weaning can be challenging for both you and your child. At your consultation, your consultant will evaluate your individual situation. She will collaborate with you on evidenced based plan to wean your child in a way that is best for you and your baby!
Latch on clinic:
A latch-on clinic is a new progressive approach to receiving breastfeeding support from both peers and an expert in a group setting. It’s an opportunity for mothers who need latch and positioning assistance to receive evidence based expertise at a nominal fee. At our latch on clinic a lactation consultant will start off by giving a short educational presentation on latch and positioning. After the presentation, she will go around the room to observe feedings, offer hands on assistance and provide latch and positioning strategies to improve your breastfeeding relationship. Much like breastfeeding support groups, mothers will be breastfeeding in a relaxed small group setting.
If we determine you and/or your baby have risk factors or challenges that require more extensive evaluation and lactation services, a consultation will be recommended. The cost of the latch-on clinic will be deducted from the cost of a full consultation.
At Nourish Lactation Services we believe that there is a tremendous benefit to immediate breastfeeding support. At the latch on clinic we will only provide basic breast feeding assistance and education. Please keep this in mind when considering if attending a latch-on clinic is appropriate for you and your baby’s circumstances.
