For when you need in-person assistance for San Antonio & surrounding areas. We can provide latch assistance, help with pumping, or trouble shooting a variety of issues such as pain, nipple damage, low supply or oversupply. Have you been told your baby has a "tongue tie"? We can help!
At the beginning of the visit we discuss you and your baby's feeding and medical history and weigh your baby. We discuss and assist with any issues you are having including latching, sustaining feedings, pumping, and/or bottle feeding. We provide all the guidance, tools, tricks and resources that you may need along the way. Towards the end of the visit we weigh your baby again to see how much milk they removed and fine tune a plan to reach your feeding goals!
Much like an in-home visit, virtual consults can assist with a variety of needs including latch coaching, feeding questions or working through with a variety of issues such as pain, nipple damage, low supply or oversupply. These are also excellent for general questions and concerns, as well as guidance with pumping and preparing to go back to work! Available to anyone with access to the internet!
A personal, one-on-one "Lactation 101" consult to prepare you for everything you will need to know to be successful with your feeding goals! This can be more of a class-based consult or (more commonly) an in-depth discussion and Q&A specific to your needs, goals and existing knowledge and can either be very broad, or zero in on specific topics/concerns you may have as you prepare for your lactation journey after delivery.
If you are an organization or business interested in hosting a prenatal group class, please visit here.
We offer exclusive pumping and/or back to work consultations in-home or via Teleahealth online. We will cover the unique specifics of pumping, how to work your pump, maximizing your supply on a pump and how to help your baby with this transition.
Extras & Insurance
We also offer our visits that friends and family can purchase as a gift to new or expecting parents! What better gift is there than the relief of knowing you have support in your corner for any lactation or feeding needs that come up?!
