Visits

Pre-natal visits can help you to prepare for the arrival of your baby by allowing you to ask questions and address any concerns you have prior to delivery, and about any previous breastfeeding experiences you have had. At home or in clinic visits are offered within the first week, and then on a case-by-case basis depending on the needs of that family.  

Laura works with the breastfeeding parent and baby during visits through different approaches to help adjust latch mechanics, assist with milk flow or supply issues, breast or nipple pain, mastitis, blocked ducts, or any other concerns that may arise.
