What's a visit with me like?
During a home visit, I review a full health history of the mother and the birth experience. I do an examination of the mother’s breasts, the baby’s general appearance as well as an oral evaluation of the baby. I do a pre and post breastfeeding weight, I evaluated the feeding and the latch and make recommendations based on these findings. I also teach the mother how to use the breast pump if she or someone else us using it. I provide the patient with a care plan and email a report to the pedi. When you book with me, i include 1 week of unlimited call/text/email support and offer an additional week if you fill out an evaluation of the services provided.
Describe your philosophy towards breastfeeding and feeding.
The breastfeeding experience is unique to each mother baby dyad. I cater my practice towards meeting the individual needs and goal of each mother. I also emphasize that breastfeeding is a work in progress because it is always evolving it takes practice and patience to make it what you want it to be.
What is your favorite part of working with new parents and infants?
Sharing the knowledge and skills I have so they become confident in their own abilities to feed and care for their baby.
