Lactation consultation in your home €100
Please call or text 0838448600 or email me at email@example.com for further details and an initial assessment.
Some breastfeeding challenges can already be addressed over the phone prior to the home visit. I will also email you a 5-minute lactation assessment questionnaire beforehand which will include questions about your medical history that will help me to determine how best to help you.
If a home lactation visit is scheduled, I will of course wear Personal Protective Equipment.
During the 60-90 min home consultation, we can work on any breastfeeding concerns you may have. I will do a thorough feeding assessment and assess your baby’s oral anatomy and sucking skills. I will assist you with latch and comfortable positioning, and talk to you about possible causes for the issues you are having.
If a weight check is indicated, I will be able to weigh your baby using a Seca neonatal weighing scale which is calibrated and approved for medical use in accordance with 93/42/EEC. I am also more than happy to answer your questions about normal newborn behaviour.
Together, we will develop a breastfeeding plan which best suits your needs. This care plan and an assessment report will be emailed to you for your own records after the consultation. I will also follow up with an email a few days after the home visit to see how you are doing.
Payment is usually not required until after the consultation.
I accept cash, bank transfer or online payment. An invoice for your health insurance can be issued.
Please Note: Most health insurance companies provide some reimbursement for two IBCLC home visits.
