Our team of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) can help with more in-depth problems should they arise. We work in collaboration with your pediatrician to ensure a healthy start for your baby.
In-home breastfeeding consultations can be scheduled on an as needed basis. The Lactation Consultant will complete a thorough history on both mom and baby, observe and assess a breastfeeding session, then devise an individualized care plan and provide follow up by phone 1-3 days after the initial consultation.
An LC will also provide tips for dealing with breastfeeding issues that interfere with getting off to a good start, such as inverted nipples, cracked or sore nipples, painful nursing, and breast engorgement. The consultant will assist with proper positioning and correct latch-on technique. The LC will work in collaboration with your pediatrician regarding your baby’s feeding plan and monitor your baby’s feedings to ensure your baby is getting enough. If supplementation is advised by your pediatrician, we can help develop a feeding plan that allows you to continue breastfeeding. The consultant will provide instructions on the use of the breast pump and guidelines on milk storage. Easy to follow written care plans will be given to address any areas of concern.
Although BWB does not participate with any insurance provider as an “In Network Provider”; we will generate a “Super Bill” for you to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement of services provided.
