In-Home Prenatal Consultation

$152 | self pay rate

A prenatal consult is a great first step toward breastfeeding/chestfeeding! You will receive a personal in-home consultation that includes a physical assessment, development of a personalized care plan for the first hour after baby’s birth through the first few months of baby’s life. We will also provide you with access our pre-recorded “All Things Breastfeeding Workshop” and a cheat sheet of all the basics.

In-Home Lactation Consultation

$200 | self pay rate

A postpartum consult is our most popular way to help support the breastfeeding/chestfeeding/pumping parent. Once baby arrives, we will perform an in-home evaluation of the feeding relationship. During this consult, we will also work to resolve any issues that may have arisen. You will receive a personal care plan based on your unique feeding situation. We hope to instill confidence and give you the tools needed for you to reach your feeding goals.

In-Home Follow up Consultation

$172 | self pay rate

An in-home postpartum follow-up provides continued care beyond the initial lactation consult. This visit continues the support as the family continues working on their breastfeeding relationship and goals. Follow up visits can also include support on a variety of lactation challenges that may arise, such as support with pumping, returning to work, or weaning.

Virtual Prenatal or Postpartum Lactation Consultation

$120 | self pay rate

A Prenatal Consultation includes a breastfeeding class tailored to your personal needs. A Postpartum Consultation provides video assessment of both mom and baby, as well as a breastfeeding session, pumping, and/or bottle feeding observation. Your Lactation Consultant will develop a care plan with you to help you meet your feeding goals and provide video resources to support your plan.

**A virtual consultation comes with limitations and does not replace the care provided in-person. However, this option can serve a need in situations of a provider having specialized expertise on a topic/problem or when in-person care is not available.

Inducing Lactation Consultation

In-Home: $172 | self pay rate
Virtual: $120 | self pay rate

An inducing lactation consult is perfect for an adoptive parent, a surrogate parent, a co-nursing parent, or a parent wishing to relactate. During this visit we will explore your options for stimulating a milk supply, as well as bonding with baby at breast/chest. You and your lactation consultant will discuss lactation tools you may benefit from and create a care plan tailored to your specific needs and timeline.
