Appointment

30min-2hrs

Once you've made the transition from birthing location to home it can seem overwhelming and that you aren't sure of what to do if feedings don't come easily.  We will coach you through feeding your baby on the spot, protecting your milk supply, pumping, etc.  Having trouble with latching or positioning? This will help find the root cause of the problem and find the best approach that works for you and your baby. Any of the above items listed can be addressed in these appointments. 

Lactation Support includes:
Pre/Post Tongue & Oral Tie Therapy & Stretches

Has your baby been diagnosed with a tongue and/or oral ties? If not and suspected we have a great oral background to help assess and refer for diagnosis to specialist providers in your area for releases and other bodywork as needed.  We can assist in helping prepare parents and the baby for release procedures as well review stretches and provide additional information to promote a successful outcome. Helping baby and mom with breastfeeding post release is necessary as the baby may need help relearning how to use their tongue and facial muscles in harmony.
