Because breast milk is the perfect first food for your baby, Newborn Connections™ wants to make sure that you have the breastfeeding support you need. Through our private breastfeeding consultations, Latch Clinic , and weekly support groups, you can receive professional instruction and reassurance from our Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
Breastfeeding is a learned skill and doesn't always come naturally. Some new mothers may experience soreness in their breasts and have concerns about whether their baby is latched on correctly. A breastfeeding consultation can help with these issues. Some common questions for which mothers seek a consultation include:
- Is my positioning and latch correct?
- Do I have enough milk?
- Is my baby gaining enough weight?
"When I had problems breastfeeding, the lactation consultants were life savers. I got an appointment quickly and for two weeks, I received follow-up calls every few days. That help went a long way in making me feel supported."
Newborn Connections™’ Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants are specially trained experts whose goal is to enhance your breastfeeding experience.
We recommend that you schedule an appointment with a lactation consultant if:
- You suspect a problem or simply need reassurance.
- You saw a lactation consultant in the hospital and continue to have concerns
- You have a preemie or multiples
- To schedule a consultation, call us at 415-600-6243.
You will be paired with one of our consultants who will review any concerns you are having, observe you and your baby during a feeding and offer guidance to ensure that both you and your baby are getting the most out of breastfeeding. A follow-up visit is recommended after your initial consultation to review your technique and address any new questions or concerns.
- Initial Consultation--75 minutes: $115
- Initial Consultation (for multiples)--90 minutes: $150
- Follow-up Visit--30 - 45 minutes: $85
