New Consult

Every consult will include maternal and newborn medical history review, maternal breast assessment, newborn oral anatomy assessment, latch assessment, newborn weight check, milk transfer assessment, solutions for breast and nipple pain,, supply assistance (over & under) Plan for success and follow up if needed. We will quickly work to repair any damage to the breastfeeding relationship to achieve relaxed, easy feedings.

Follow up Consult

We will check in on baby’s progress, with the option to do pre and post-feeding weight checks. Together we will address any questions you may have. I will offer support and suggestion during a feeding. I will ensure that you are feeling confident in your breastfeeding abilities by teaching you techniques and giving your even more knowledge on the process of milk production.

Private Prenatal Breastfeeding Education

Have lots of concerns and questions? During this private session, we will explore your medical history and previous breastfeeding issues. A breastfeeding plan will be tailored towards you and your family’s unique situation and goals. By offering prenatal visits, my goal is to reduce any stress, allowing you to pay attention to your body and your baby and to be prepared for the first few days after delivery. It is best if both partners are present for this consult.

“Grateful does not even begin to describe how we feel for Jessica. She saved my lactation life and my nursing journey with my son. She worked me through issues that I didn’t even know existed including a two week nursing strike from my son. I was at the lowest of lows and moments away from giving up when she pushed me and stuck by my side. Without her I would’ve given up and would no longer be nursing my son. And here we are at six months with a wonderful nursing relationship! She went above and beyond the required care and I instantly knew that she truly cared for my son and me. I will have her in my corner for every hopeful birth in my future and will suggest her to every woman I know! She is loved by the Kyle family.”
