Moms desiring to breastfeed baby are at the greatest risk of giving up within the first 10 days after birth. This package was developed to help mamas with breastfeeding before problems arise, before pain, before worry, and to revise on-call support if an issue should arise.
- 1 prenatal educational visit
- 3 in-person visits; one within 24 hours of birth
- unlimited on-call support for the first 10 days
An in-home visit with a certified lactation counselor to discuss your journey, your goals, and current concerns. Together we will observe a full feeding and discuss strategy to meet your goals and move forward.
An in-office appointment with Occupational Therapist, Emily, to address oral motor concerns as it relates to infant feeding. In this appointment we can address issues such as tongue and lip mobility and jaw stability or torticollis while also considering the whole body and supporting with a holistic approach by addressing contributing factors.
A two hour one-time class offered in our office. In this interactive experience you and your partner will understand the story of milk supply, infant behavior and instinctual drive to nurse, quality latch technique, milk management, troubleshooting strategies, and tools (including pumps and bottles).
We are so happy to welcome Emily to our team to support our families in their lactation journey. As an OT and a certified lactation counselor, she is extremely equipped to walk along side of you and your family however you need. Emily loves working with moms in their lactation experience because she has walked that journey four times with her four children. She loves being able to see mothers achieve their goals in this area as it can lead to so much unnecessary heartache. Emily loves being able to share what she knows and doesn’t hold back her many different skill sets in order to help you thrive!
