IBCLC Connect Phone Consultation

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, support and will let you know when an in-person consultation is needed.

I need it if:

  • Questions about feeding that don’t require a physical assessment
  • Information about typical feeding, or baby behavior
    • Expressing and Storing Milk
    • Returning to Work Planning
    • Introducing Complimentary Food
    • Typical Infant Behavior
    • Healthy Infant Sleep Patterns

Includes:

  • Discussion of your concerns
  • Care Plan
  • Resources emailed
