What to Expect at Your Consult

[future]

  • Where do lactation consultations take place?

    We provide both in-person and virtual lactation consultations. In-person sessions take place at our clinic and virtual sessions are held over Zoom. You can choose what works best for you!

  • What we do together in a Lactation Consult

    First visits are typically 45-60 minutes to give us time for a thorough history, observing baby feeding (breast, bottle or both), and a plan of care.  Included is

    • A history and assessment of breastfeeding and/or bottle feeding issues by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and infant feeding SLP
    • An assessment of latch, suck and positioning
    • Breast care including mastitis, plugged ducts, blebs, thrush, engorgement, and nipple soreness
    • Soothing a fussy baby
    • Breastfeeding while returning to work
    • Assistance with breast pumps, nipple shields and other lactation devices
    • Breastfeeding education and support
    • Transition from breast to bottle OR bottle to breast
    • A report to send to your care provider(s) if requested
  • What to have at your consultation:

    • YOU and your precious baby
    • Any current nursing gadgets
    • Any pumps and required pump parts if desired
    • Preferred feeding pillows if desired
    • Bottles/pacifiers
  • Here are some helpful tips to maximize your virtual appointment:

    • Both users must have adequate internet connection
    • Both users must have adequate lighting. Please keep a flashlight/light on hand for mouth assessments
    • May need a second set of hands to help with positioning the device for best viewing
    • It is beneficial (not necessary) for the family to have two connected devices.  I.e. a computer/ipad for discussion and a phone for breast and bottle feeding/latch assessment
  • While virtual lactation consults are useful for many reasons, there will be times that our IBCLC must refer mom and/or baby to a local health care provider. These cases may include:

    • Suspected tongue and/or lip tie or other oral malformation
    • Mastitis, thrush and other breastfeeding concerns requiring treatment
    • Inadequate lighting/internet connection to perform a quality online assessment
    • Concerns with weight gain, jaundice and/or general well-being of your baby
