Prenatal education private or semi-private sessions
Sessions are tailored to answer your specific questions and concerns. Our approach is to describe what to expect when your baby is born, how newborns typically behave, and to provide strategies that work to establish a positive and fulfilling feeding relationship. With the use of dolls and other props, we strive to teach you how to breastfeed so that you and your baby are comfortable and minimize the awkwardness of handling a delicate newborn. We will also give you the knowledge of how to know your newborn is feeding well such as identifying swallows and assessing if feedings are adequate by tracking diapers.
Are most often the optimal way to provide care and guidance to new moms learning or perhaps struggling to breastfeed. Appointments are arranged around your baby’s feeding time and eliminate the stress of a car ride or trying to arrive to an appointment on time with a newborn.
What to Expect:
Discussion of your journey and pertinent medical information
Use of a scale to record an accurate naked weight and conduct a weighed feeding
Observation and assistance with a feeding
Guidance for assessing your infants’ behavior and ability to nurse efficiently
Individualized care plan with detailed explanations, instructions and resources
Comprehensive written assessment for your physician/pediatrician
Medical receipt for you to submit for reimbursement to your insurance company
Follow up by phone, text or email
