A private lactation consult is typically a 1 ½ -2 hour visit where the lactation consultant takes your medical history, examines you and your baby, and assists you with positioning baby at the breast to make breastfeeding more comfortable. Your baby will be weighed before and after feeding and you will learn how well he/she is able to transfer milk from the breast. 

At the conclusion of the visit, you will be given detailed instructions and recommendations to facilitate your breastfeeding success. Unlimited telephone follow-up is encouraged and a letter will be provided to your health care provider(s) to include him/her in you and your baby’s plan of care.
