Lactation counselors have received specialized training in understanding lactation and counseling skills. Lactation counselors may work with people in all sorts of different circumstances including:
● Preparation for breastfeeding during pregnancy ● Supporting parents who want to tandem feed their newborn and an older child ● Helping parents to establish lactation ● Overcoming problems such as latch, supply issues, positioning, thrush, engorgement or mastitis ● Support in feeding multiples ● Support in expressing breastmilk
My role includes providing you physical, emotional, and educational support, but I will not diagnose or prescribe medications. I can help you overcome problems in the early days of parenting that may enable you to continue breastfeeding for as long as you wish to. I will not judge or pressure you to continue breastfeeding if you have determined this is what is right for you.
I will take a comprehensive history and talk to you about your breastfeeding experience so far. I will meet with you at mutually agreeable times - generally a 3 or 6 visit series.
During these visits, we can discuss any questions or issues you might have. Additional visits can be arranged at an additional hourly charge
I may also be available for telephone or email support, especially for the follow-up period after you have initially met and identified any potential problems. I can provide information on options for decisions you may be making as it relates to your breastfeeding problems.
However, you will be responsible for deciding on a course of action that is best suited to your individual needs and preferences and for discussing the terms with your doctor.
All records I keep are confidential. I will not share these records with any person, except where disclosure is required by law.
