In home consultations
- Home visits allow me to accurately weigh your baby to make sure they’re gaining enough—which can give new parents confidence. When needed, we also can measure the amount of milk delivered, and do a full breast exam and oral exam for your baby.
Online lactation consultations
- Virtual consults can be great for taking histories and troubleshooting common questions and problems. Most of what we do in-home can be effectively replicated online
Bottlefeeding & pumping
- I advise clients on bottle-feeding technique, pumping schedules, and strategies to fit your family. Together we can select pumps, bottles, and other feeding equipment, as well as how to use and clean it—and store excess milk!
Comprehensive care plans
- All our appointments end with a comprehensive care plan. This includes notes on everything we talked about, and links to resources and videos on key topics—as well as when to follow up.
- I bill direct to Aetna. With all other HMOs and PPOs I supply you with a standard superbill which you can submit for reimbursement. I can accept payments from health spending accounts.
