Consults

All of our services are uniquely tailored for each family that contacts us. We offer an established lactation support program for families who need further guidance and consultation to ensure a successful breastfeeding experience. Most babies are born knowing how to suck, but not always knowing how to suck properly at the breast, and many new parents are not quite sure how to go about helping the baby learn. All parents appreciate some help and encouragement at the beginning to develop a successful nursing relationship.

Common Issues

Many families who call us are clearly in distress; our responsibility to both parent and baby is to help them establish an easier breastfeeding relationship. Over the course of our careers, we have discovered and learned how to approach these problems. We often take a team approach to families in order to give them follow-up support after our visits with them; this follow-up is clearly what sets us apart.
