The deluxe package! Includes up to 12 home visits in the first 6 weeks, plus a prenatal visit. This means expanded assistance with breastfeeding, baby weights and exams just like in the doctor's office, ordering of any labs needed, sleep assistance, newborn behavior counseling and help with integrating a new baby into your life. Recommended for first-time parents, those with a high risk pregnancy or concerns about bringing home a new baby, and those with a history of difficulty breastfeeding.
A home visit done before your baby is born. This is a chance for us to get to know each other, and for me to understand what your specific goals are with respect to your baby’s first month. I will help you plan for the hospital stay and your baby's first days.
This visit is usually done 1-2 days after returning home from the hospital or birthing center, and includes a full exam of the new baby just like in your pediatrician's office, a full lactation consultation, ordering of any necessary labs, and a lot of assistance with everything from feeding to sleep patterns, elimination and self-care.
Each of these visits is generally scheduled at the time of the previous visit. I will follow your baby’s weight carefully, perform a full physical exam of the baby, work on any breastfeeding issues, and help with any other concerns.
In this unusual time, you may opt to do some of the visits by video conferencing. This visit type is similar to a follow-up visit but is done remotely for issues that can be taken care of in this fashion.
These visits are for those families who are in need of help with breastfeeding only. I will do a brief exam of the baby, discuss your history, watch a feed, adjust the latch, recommend treatments for common breast complaints, and work with you to reach your breastfeeding goals.
