Do I Need an In Home Consult?


If you are asking yourself this question, then chances are YOU DO! Whether you are just home from the hospital and having painful latch issues or you are several months out and concerned that your milk supply is inadequate, I can help. Together we can evaluate your breastfeeding (or bottle feeding!) issues and formulate a plan of care. My mission is to help you meet your goals and get your baby fed.

In Home Consults

Before meeting with your family in your home, I ask you fill out an intake form so that I can tailor the structure of our visit. Most families require a 90 minute initial visit and a 30-45 minute follow up visit.


Visit in inclues:


  • Weigh in for baby
  • In depth discussion with parents about concerns and plan of care
  • Observing baby’s latch and milk transfer
  • Assess positioning and comfort for mom
  • Tailor informational packet with outlined plan of care

Mileage

I live in the southern end of Lancaster, PA. I generally only make in home consults for families within 50 miles of my home. For an agreed upon fee, I will consider traveling further.

  • How much milk should I expect to be pumping?
  • How do I know my baby is eating enough?
  • My baby seems to cry all the time. Is that normal?
  • How long is my pumped milk good for in the refrigerator? Freezer? At room temperature?

Do you have some questions you want answered by a lactation consultant? Perfect. I’m here to help. The internet is a wealth of information but much of it is contradictory or from unreliable sources. Many parents feel overwhelmed trying to find answers to breastfeeding questions like:
