In Home Visits

Is breastfeeding not going as you hoped it would?  Are you struggling with sore nipples, poor latch, slow weight gain, over/under milk supply, or any number of issues that can arise?  Are you unsure how to use your breast pump?  Although breastfeeding is supposed to be a natural means of feeding our babies, it is not always easy.  The good news is that I can provide you with non-judgmental lactation support in the comfort of your own home.

Initial Consultation  $300

The initial consultation typically lasts 1.5-2 hours and includes:

  • listening to your concerns about breastfeeding

  • understanding the medical history for you and your baby (or babies)

  • assessing your breasts and the baby's oral anatomy/suck ability

  • observing a breastfeeding session

  • weighing the baby pre and post feeding

  • demonstrating techniques and tools to help improve breastfeeding

  • teaching you how to use a breast pump and how/where to store the milk

  • providing recommendations and a care plan to you and your pediatrician (if desired)

I am available for unlimited texts, emails, and calls after the visit, which is included in the initial fee. 

Follow-up Visit  $200

Return visits are sometimes necessary to check on the progress of breastfeeding, to tweak some issues that haven't been resolved, or to weigh the baby.  These visits typically last 1-1.5 hours.

Prenatal Visit $150

Private prenatal visits in the comfort of your own home typically last 1 hour and are tailored to your specific needs.  I will provide breastfeeding education, a breast exam, demonstration of breastfeeding techniques, and recommendations on how to avoid unnecessary medical interventions that can lead to breastfeeding complications and supplementation.

Payment by cash, check, or credit card is due at the time of service.  Most insurance companies will reimburse for lactation support.  I will provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company.
