Visits are about two hours long.
In a typical visit, we talk about your baby's birth, breastfeeding history, and any questions you might have about breastfeeding.
I observe a feeding, and give support on latching, positioning, etc. Usually we will weigh the baby before and after the feed to get a good sense of intake.
At the end of the visit, I write up a plan, with my suggestions and notes. I also include follow up support by phone or email.
