A prenatal consultation is held in clinic or in your home, and is a chance to review your history and make a plan for baby’s arrival and early feeding. Bring a list of questions, and a partner or support person if you wish!
Postpartum consultations before 2 weeks are held in your home, and after 2 weeks in clinic. At your first visit, we will discuss your baby-feeding goals and make a plan together for steps forward for you and baby. This visit usually involves an assessment of baby’s mouth and sucking coordination, observing and/or assisting with a feed at the breast or chest, and reviewing pumping and/or supplemental feeding equipment and routines.
Katie carries an electronic baby scale to weigh baby at each visit if needed.
