Private Consultations: prenatal and post-partum
With an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Prenatal consultations are recommended in order to prepare for special circumstances. While it is difficult to determine which, if any, complications will arise, there are specific circumstances that will benefit from the expertise and support of a certified lactation consultant. Some of these circumstances may include: a complicated pregnancy, risk of pre-term delivery, maternal illness, maternal history of breast reduction, flat or inverted nipples, multiple births, cesarean births, or a history of breastfeeding difficulties. For many women, having support from a trained professional early on can help ensure breastfeeding success.
Postpartum consultations offer compassionate, expert guidance to ensure a satisfying breastfeeding experience. Support from our lactation consultant in the first days and weeks following birth can help resolve common early challenges of breastfeeding.
