I highly recommend expecting parents to book a breastfeeding class before childbirth.  This will ensure you have all the basics covered. However, we all know things happen, and you may need additional support along the way. If you need additional in home support to:

  • Correct a shallow or improper latch 
  • Create a plan to return to work and continue breastfeeding 
  • Implement everything you learned in your breastfeeding class
  • On hand support

My recommendation: 

Schedule your first session to be held while you're still postpartum in the hospital!

As a postpartum and nursery nurse, I can tell you unequivocally, most moms begin having issues with breastfeeding before they leave the hospital.  Approx 75% of my patients that want to exclusively breastfeed, begin bottle feeding within 48 hours.  Why?

There may be a Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), on staff BUT her/his time is limited.  

  • They don't have enough IBCLCs available on the unit to spend the time with you that you REALLY need if you're having difficulties.  
  • The baby is sleeping when the IBCLC comes to see you (the irony)
  • You'l probably only get 1 visit the entire time you're there
  • Not all nurse are trained in lactation support, or your nurse simply doesn't have the time available to spend with you. 

By having someone with you, at your bedside, you have hands-on undivided support and education to guide you and answer your question. 

In addition, I stay with you for 2 feeding sessions. I do this so, during the first feeding, I can teach, tweak, and I'm very hands on.  The second feeding session, I like to be more hands off, and allow for you to implement more.  

*If you're selecting 2+ sessions, please note that all sessions do not need to be in home. A variety of in-home, phone, email, video conferencing are available to suit your needs. 

*If you desire support for the entire day, please book 4 sessions.
