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 in home consultation I will take a medical history and assess both you and your baby in relation to feeding. I bring a scale with me so we can track your baby's intake while feeding. Home visits usually last around 90 minutes for an initial visit and 60 minutes for a follow up visit. Please try to time your feeds for the day so that your baby is ready to eat soon after I arrive.
If you would like to schedule an in home consultation, please choose an option below. My fee is $375 for an initial in home consultation and includes two weeks of follow up phone and email support. Subsequent home visits are $275. I will provide you with a superbill so you can file for reimbursement from your insurance company. Reimbursement is not guaranteed but I will support your efforts with proper paperwork and resources. If you have Aetna, I am in network, and will submit claims to them directly.
I offer home visits in the following areas:
MANHATTAN ASTORIA (if near a subway) LONG ISLAND CITY
GREENPOINT WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN HEIGHTS DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN
