Prenatal Breastfeeding Education
This 75-minute visit will cover the essentials for successful breastfeeding initiation during the hospital stay, first days of life and “know when to call for help”.
Initial Breastfeeding Evaluation
Initial visit generally takes 2-2.5 hours. A complete assessment of the breastfeeding dyad is obtained which includes reproductive history, birth experience, medical interventions and state of milk production. We evaluate baby’s muscle tone, structural alignment, cranial and facial features, state of autonomic regulation and oral cavity and tongue functionality. Observe a feed to complete our evaluation.
A complete plan/recommendations based on individual needs and breastfeeding goals. Based on findings, recommendations for additional therapies will be discussed.
The initial visit includes a full plan of care sent by e-mail. My secure HIPPA compliant platform allows for parents to communicate or ask questions when needed.
Most times, a follow-up appointment is set at the end of the initial visit
This visit is an extension of the initial evaluation. Complex issues may require multiple visits. Examples are preparing the baby and the family for TOT’S release, oral habilitation post frenectomy, comprehensive lactation management support, weight gain issues, failure to thrive, among others. We’ll always address the needs of the dyad in helping parents achieve their own level of success at breastfeeding.
Oral habilitation post frenectomy may require multiple visits based on complexity.
Our office ours are 10 am to 5 pm. We work diligently to accommodate your needs.
