Home Visits

In a home visit I provide support and guidance to help you breastfeed more comfortably and to help your baby feed more effectively. During a home visit, I always :

  1. Review positioning, latch-on, and normal breastfeeding patterns.
  2. Help you to refine your technique, read your baby's cues, and recognize when your baby is feeding effectively.
  3. Weigh your baby on a digital baby scale before and after the feeding, so that we know your baby is getting an adequate amount of milk at the breast. If milk supply is a concern, we will also discuss ways to increase milk production.
