Two kinds of private one-on-one consultations are available:
Pre-natal (pregnant women)
A private session typically lasts 90 minutes. The mother-to-be will receive practical guidance that is relevant to her specific situation and breastfeeding goals. We will discuss breastfeeding basics, how to establish your milk supply, how to get a good latch, different breastfeeding positions and more. An excellent preparation for breastfeeding. Reference materials will be provided.
Post-natal (new moms)
A private session typically lasts 90 minutes to 2 hours. It will take place in your own home at a time when your baby is ready to feed. The new mom will receive coaching to achieve a good latch, establish her milk supply and ensure that the baby is getting enough milk. Any concerns or questions will be addressed. If you are having difficulties breastfeeding, we will investigate to determine the likely cause of the problem and develop a plan, that you can share with your health care provider, to get breastfeeding back on track. Be encouraged – most problems can be solved. With information and support you can reach your breastfeeding goals and enjoy breastfeeding your baby.
