Preparing For Your Visit
I will email you paperwork to be filled out. Please have it filled out and submitted the evening prior to our visit. This allows us to spend more time on YOUR breastfeeding questions and interactions during the visit.
Plan to feed your baby at our visit
If your baby is hungry and fussy before our visit time, no worries, go ahead and breastfeed, most will feed again.
Dress for comfort and accessibility.
Ideally you will be wearing a top that allows for easy breastfeeding and skin-to-skin contact. Just be comfortable.
Please do not clean your house for me
I'm here to focus on you and your baby, not your home.
Have your breast pump out and ready for use
If you think we might need to talk about breast pump use or have questions on fit --having it ready to go will save us time. If you don't use a pump no worries, not everyone needs one!
Do some skin-to-skin time before I arrive. Dress your baby in only a clean diaper and lay with his chest touching your bare skin before our visit. This helps baby be calm and ready to feed before our visit.
Give yourself a pat on the back for seeking assistance
While we can't always provide an immediate fix, our goal is to leave you with a breastfeeding plan that will help you feel more confident and able to take charge of your breastfeeding journey.
