Learning the behaviours of a newborn baby and the way to care for them is challenge for all new parents, not just those that are breastfeeding. This is an opportunity for a home visit focused solely on learning my top tips and tricks for settling, swaddling, and how to manage all the things that most babies do when they are first born. Useful in those first few weeks after you take your baby home.
This advice is provided within my lactation home visit package, but I am now offering it to all parents. Not just those with breastfeeding difficulties.
An appointment designed to give you the knowledge and tools required to get you off to a great start in your breastfeeding journey. Appointments are 1-1.5 hours in length.
An appointment up to 2 hours in length. During this appointment a thorough history is taken, a breastfeed is observed, and information/education is given regarding positioning and attachment, management of sore nipples, milk supply, and infant care.
Follow up text or call as required.
Follow up appointments are charged at an hourly rate to ensure that you get the help that you need, following up on anything that you require after our first appointment together.
Learn more about normal baby behaviours and how to understand you baby's needs. Charged at an hourly rate, appointments are designed around how much time you need, not a fixed time.
