  • Establish a strong milk supply
  • Improve your baby’s latch
  • Address any pain or discomfort
  • Navigate common breastfeeding challenges

Package Options

We understand that every parent and baby is unique, which is why our lactation counseling is tailored to your individual needs. Our counselors take a compassionate, non-judgmental approach and are here to support you no matter what your goals or circumstances may be. Whether you are exclusively breastfeeding, supplementing with formula, or considering a transition to solid foods, we’re here to provide the guidance and resources you need.

Complete Infant Feeding Support Package

This all-inclusive package will provide you with 24/7, evidence-based support from a certified lactation consultant and infant feeding specialist three months prior to birth and six months following the birth. We will begin with two prenatal visits during your 3rd trimester to go over your infant feeding options and we will make goals together. Then, after the birth, you will receive individualized, in-home support. You will receive up to 15 hours of in-home support after the birth, along with 24/7 text, phone, and/or email support. Once your baby is 6 months old, we will finish up your package with a thorough, one-hour consultation to go over the process of introducing solids.

Individual In-Person or Virtual Consultations

Pre-Birth Consultations: These consultations will be one-on-one with a certified infant feeding specialist to go over your options and create goals for your infant feeding journey. These typically will occur during the third trimester, but they can happen at any time during your pregnancy. Each consultation will have a duration of up to one hour.

Postpartum Consultations: These 1-hour long visits allow you to receive in-home guidance and support as you navigate the highs and lows of infant feeding – no matter how that looks like for you. One hour not enough time? We are happy to schedule multiple postpartum consultations with you until you feel completely confident in your infant feeding journey.

Introducing Solids Consultation: Are you worried about when and how to start introducing solids to your baby? Schedule a 1-hour consultation with a certified infant feeding specialist to go over what you need to know to get started.
