Folks, I have spent some time trying to explain “unprecedented” to my 5 and 8 year olds this week. We are in uncharted territory for sure. The plans put in place – travel bans, social distancing, etc., are absolutely what will help save us and “flatten the curve.” However, it means some people will not get the help they need for non-emergency care.
I want to assure new families, we as IBCLCs are doing everything we can to continue to provide lactation care for those in need.
I am currently still offering in-home consults, with all health precautions and stringent sanitizing in place. I will never schedule an in-home consult if a family member, including myself, is feeling ill. I will also ask about the health of those in your home.
However, in-person visits may not be the care your comfortable with, so ONLINE CONSULTS are now available! Using a secure and HIPAA compliant platform, we can schedule and perform virtual visits. Please see “Services” for pricing.
These visits include:
-Health history of parent and baby
-Observation of feeding
-A guided oral assessment
-Pumping Q & A, including flange fitting
-Individualized feeding and milk supply plan
