We also have certified lactation educators who can assist in less critical ways to help get breastfeeding off to a good start. We offer a breastfeeding class for couples to have a hands on learning experience to help prepare them for success. If you take this class, you can come to Teresa’s childbirth class for any follow-up needs you may have at no cost. If you did not attend this class and need help. There is an hourly fee of $25/ hour if you make an appointment to come to our teaching space. If you need us to come to you it is a two hour minimum at $45/ hour. We offer help in latching the baby and good positions with guidance in the basics of breastfeeding.
We also have a few certified lactation consultants available to assist in this area. They are trained and specialize in helping to get a mom and baby nursing happily. They come to your home for an initial visit to help ascertain how to best help you establish a wonderful nursing relationship with your new baby. This initial visit allows some follow ups by phone and if additional appointments are needed they can be determined from there. They are available for more extensive help beyond the basics.
How do you enlist lactation services? Call Teresa and she will ascertain if your needs require the expertise of an IBCLC or a lactation educator. She may be able to help you over the phone with some basic concerns that may be all you need. If you need more assistance, she will give you the names of those who may be able to assist you.
