  • Optional postpartum visit at 3 months (end of the fourth trimester) to further process the birth

breastfeeding support

Supposedly the most “natural” thing a new parent will do is often one of the most difficult, with good reason! It’s something brand new for your baby, often brand new for you as a parent, and as the two (or three) of you navigate these new experiences it can help to have a little extra, specialized support.

  • Adjustment of positioning and latch technique
  • Discussion of frequency and duration of feedings
  • Discussion of any identified need or desire to supplement
  • Individualized care plans
  • Referrals as necessary
  • Appointments may also include information and education on pumping, returning to work, and bottle feeding.
