Many breastfeeding challenges can be resolved in one visit and others can be more of a work in progress. Either way, we will work with you to create a breastfeeding plan that you feel comfortable with and will follow-up with you as needed. You will receive educational information as well as a customized summary of our visit by e-mail.

We love helping moms with breastfeeding and we want to make sure you are successful with breastfeeding after your consultation. As part of the consultation, you will have unlimited advice from us via phone/email communication whenever you have questions at no additional charge. We are available to you as long as you continue to breastfeed and need our advice!
