Coming home from the hospital with a new baby can be an exciting, but often stressful time. After bringing home a new baby, you many have questions about breastfeeding that you would like to address with individual attention. An individual lactation consultation can take place in the comfort of your own home or at my office in Providence, Richmond or Wakefield. Each consultation generally lasts 1 ½ – 2 hours, and includes a follow up call.
Some of the issues that new mothers may seek help with include:
- Nipple trauma- blisters, cracks, bruising
- Pain throughout feedings
- Infant weight loss
- History of unsuccessful breastfeeding
- History of breast surgery
- Multiple births
- Premature infant
- Jaundiced infant
