Do you need a lactation consultant?
I can help you with the following issues:
pain during or after feeding
questions or concerns about baby’s weight gain
baby is fussy at the breast
low milk supply or oversupply
breast/chest feeding your adopted baby or baby born by surrogacy
breastfeeding after reduction or augmentation
questions about pumping and milk storage
preparing to go back to work
assessing oral restrictions
other general concerns about breastfeeding
During an initial consultation I will take a medical history and assess both you and your baby in relation to feeding. We will use a scale to track your baby's intake while feeding. Initial consultations last around 90 minutes and follow ups take around 60 minutes. Please try to time your feeds for the day so that your baby is ready to eat soon after our visit begins.
I offer home visits in the following areas:
MANHATTAN ASTORIA (if near a subway) LONG ISLAND CITY
GREENPOINT WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN HEIGHTS DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN
LOWER HUDSON VALLEY MID-HUDSON VALLEY
My office is at 134 West 26th Street, New York, NY
If you have Aetna and are located in New York City, all follow up visits take place in my office.
