Initial Lactation Consultation : This visit usually lasts 1.5 to 2 hours and includes a thorough pregnancy, birth and feeding history, an observation and assessment of a nursing session, pre and post weight feed, and an oral and structural evaluation of baby. A customized care plan will be created leaving you with a health and feeding plan for the immediate period. A report to your health care provider(s) will be given upon request via telephone, and/or email. The initial consultation fee includes ongoing follow up via phone and email until your reason for seeking the consultation is resolved. Any new concerns for current clients will require an in person consultation but will be billed as a follow up consultation.
Follow up consultation : This visit usually lasts about an hour to an hour and half and includes reassessment of feeding and discussion of adjustments to customized care plan.
Weight Check and Chat: Meredith hosts an open door event every two weeks, on Tuesday mornings, from 9:30-11:00 am. Come weigh, chat with other moms, nurse, and weigh again.
