In-Home Support (up to 2 hours)
Long Island residents can schedule in-person consultations. This option is usually ideal for newborns and begins with an initial phone or video conference in order to gather information about your history and discuss your breastfeeding experience. During an in-home consultation, I observe your infant at the breast while assisting in finding comfortable positioning and latch. We will then work together to create a customized plan to help you meet your personal breastfeeding goals as we identify solutions to any challenges you may have experienced. Additionally, you may receive a referral to a specialist if needed. This consultation also includes notes and resources for you to refer to after our meeting. I will then continue to be available to answer any questions regarding the consultation via email. An invitation to join the Mamma's Magical Milk Private Support Group on Facebook is also included. *Please complete the booking form below to schedule your consultation and to receive more information.
