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
