As a lactation consultant...

I provide holistic, evidence-based support through all stages of infant feeding. No matter where you are on your feeding journey, my promise to you is unconditional support, non-judgement, and a calm, grounded presence to guide you each step of the way.

Lactation Consultant Services

I provide education and support both before and after the arrival your baby. No need to pack up your precious bundle to travel to an office! I will come to you with all needed assessment tools, including a hospital grade scale, and help you feed your baby in the comfort of your own home.

Each visit includes a follow-up via phone or email within 48 hours of the visit. Beyond that time, questions that can be answered in an email or with a short phone call are provided at no additional cost. If the question is more involved, or new issues have arisen, I will often recommend a follow up visit to more fully assess what’s happening.

Lactation consultant services are eligible for reimbursement through your insurance company and/or through your HSA or FSA. I provide a superbill after payment is received to make reimbursement as simple as possible, but it’s up to your individual insurance to decide how much they are willing to reimburse.

Add 3 hours of postpartum support to Initial or Follow-up consultations for an additional $110. This has the dual benefits of allowing me more time to observe your baby feeding and providing support in the form of light-housekeeping tasks, birth recovery and newborn care education, or baby care while you take time for self-care (or a nap!). If you are interested in this additional support, please include a note in the comment box when you schedule your lactation consult and I will get back to you to confirm scheduling.

Prenatal Education

before birth

I meet with you during pregnancy to discuss any questions or concerns you have about feeding your baby. Reasons for a prenatal visit vary and can include: a history of difficulties breastfeeding/chestfeeding previous children, maternal history of PCOS or infertility, and inducing lactation. The visit concludes with a personalized plan for breastfeeding management prior to the birth of your new baby to help get your feeding journey off to the best start possible. Prenatal consultations are generally 1 hour to 90 minutes in length.


Initial Lactation Consult

after birth

Initial consultations, usually about 90 minutes in length, include a thorough health history of both you and your baby, pre and post-feed weight to see how much your baby is taking in, observation and assessment of how your baby feeds at the breast/chest, as well as a gentle examination of you and your baby as needed.

I allow plenty of time for you to share your story, as well as all questions, concerns and insights you have related to the challenges you are facing. At the end of our consultation, I will create a written care plan that is feasible for you and your family.


Follow-up Lactation Consult

after the initial consult

While some breastfeeding challenges may be addressed in only one initial visit, most challenges require additional appointments and care plan adjustments. Follow up visits are generally 1 hour in length, during which time we will assess your progress and make adjustments to your care plan as needed.
