Private in-home consultations are available for lactation education and support for pregnant, new and experienced parents. Leslie works with you to find answers for their breastfeeding concerns, and create a care-plan that is tailored for each client.  

At a home visit, Leslie will review the parent's and infant's health history, evaluate breast and nipple tissue and baby's facial and oral tissues to determine physical, developmental, or situational impacts on breastfeeding.  Home visits may include assessment of, and help with, latch and position, healing for sore nipples or breasts, weight checks for infants, pre/post feed weights to determine milk intake, a full feeding assessment including the use of any supplements and bottle feeding techniques if needed, use of breastfeeding accessories such as supplemental feeders or nipple shields, questions about herbs and medications, help with pump parts and pumping strategies, and much more.  You will receive a comprehensive care plan and any referrals necessary at the end of the visit, and Leslie will send a report of the visit to both the lactating parent's and infant's health care providers.

Learning to breastfeed, and overcoming difficulties is a dynamic situation.  After your visit, Leslie will be available by email for follow-up questions as pertains to your care plan.  Some situations are complex and may require follow up appointments for continued care, or for new issues that may arise.

Milk supply, latch, breast or nipple pain, infant pain or fussiness relating to feedings, plugged ducts, bottle feeding or refusal, starting solids, weaning, and more!
