Ideally scheduled in the third trimester after completion of a breastfeeding class, this one-on-one consultation will review mother's medical history to check for any conditions or medications that may affect breastfeeding, ensure mother is prepared for what to expect the first few days breastfeeding, go over supplies and measurement for pump flanges, and answer any questions or concerns. The environment set in the moments after birth and first week of breastfeeding has a dramatic affect on long term success and positive experience. Moms who complete this prenatal consultation are prepared and confident about their ability to successfully breastfeed and nurture their soon-to-arrive little one. An in-depth Personalized Care Plan will be sent to mother and OBGYN within 24 hours after appointment.
This consultation is included as part of a private Comprehensive Breastfeeding Class.
