**** All consults at this time are being done via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing platform If you are in Vacaville, CA or a surrounding area and would like me to come to your home and do a consult please reach out so we can chat! *****
My goal is to help nursing moms get the specialized assistance they need to be successful with breastfeeding, on their own terms. Every mom and baby are unique in their experience and I am looking forward to working with you to provide a customizable supportive approach that best fits you and your baby’s need. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I truly believe that every mom does the best she can with the information and support she has. I would feel privileged to be a part of your support system.
Prenatal Consults, Postpartum Consults, Going Back to Work Consults, and Weight Checks (Vacaville, Dixon, Davis, Fairfield, CA ONLY) are all services I provide. Below is a description of what typically happens during an Initial Postpartum Consultation:
WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN INITIAL CONSULTATION?
Virtual consults will last 45-60 minutes (In-person consults are about 60-90 minutes)
A digital consent form and intake form will be emailed to you to fill out and sign prior to the consult
We'll discuss relevant health history for both mom and baby as indicated for present challenges.
A feeding is observed. I watch first! It’s helpful to learn each mother’s personal style before trying to fix/change anything.
Questions and concerns are fully addressed.
A mutually agreed upon plan of care is created
Payment via Venmo or Debit/Credit card is sent prior to consult ending
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY INITIAL CONSULTATION?
I believe that follow-up and ongoing support is crucial to meeting your breastfeeding goals, therefore you may contact me within 3 days after our consultation via phone or email with any concerns or questions following our initial consultation.
If you still have significant concerns or are having further difficulties and would like a follow-upconsultation I can schedule another virtual visit. These follow-up consultations are usually 30 minutes in length and are at a reduced fee.
I believe that lactation consulting should be accessible to all mothers who would like assistance with nursing their child and should not be out of reach to those without financial means. Payment arrangements can be made on an individual basis.
