A consultation with a private practice IBCLC typically lasts 1.5-2 hours.
At the beginning of the consultation, I’ll ask you to sign a consent form giving permission to work with you and your baby.
Then I’ll ask questions about your physical history, labor and delivery, and anything that may have an effect on breastfeeding.
With your permission, I’ll examine your breasts and your baby’s mouth and sucking abilities.
I may weigh the baby before breastfeeding on a highly sensitive electronic scale so that we can take another weight after breastfeeding to assess how much milk your baby transferred.
If needed, I will help you with latching and positioning.
I will provide tools and tips throughout the consultation to help you breastfeed more easily and answer any questions or concerns that you have.
WE will then develop a treatment plan to help you reach your breastfeeding goals (not mine), taking into consideration your lifestyle, limitations, and preferences.
