Lactation consulting services

Home Visits

I offer home visits in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. During this 11/2 to 2 hour initial visit, I take a medical history and address your breastfeeding issues and concerns. I also bring a digital scale to weigh your baby before and after nursing to access intake and make sure she is getting enough to eat. I will leave you with a written plan based on our work together, a receipt and instructions for reimbursement by your insurance provider.

Follow-up visits are offered at a reduced rate.
