Tele-Health

30+ minutes; phone or video-conference

Talk to an IBCLC over the phone or through secure video-conference. Sometimes we need to talk through our questions, or need to gather concise information that doesn't require an in-home consultation. Reading from a website isn't always enough. Talking with an experienced professional can help you sift through information, and identify a plan that works for you and supports your feeding goals. Call us once or multiple times. Talk to an IBCLC who hears your concerns, offers ideas and support, and will let you know when an in-person consultation is needed.

  • Questions about feeding that don't require a physical assessment
