What can I expect during a home visit?

An initial visit lasts about 2 hours. During that time, I may:

  • Review your medical intake form

  • Address your breastfeeding issues and concerns

  • Perform a physical or visual exam of the mother’s breasts

  • Perform an oral exam of the baby

  • Observe the baby nursing and possibly bottle-feeding

  • Weigh the baby before and after a feed to assess intake

  • Develop a care plan based on work together. This may include follow up email plan with links, videos and referrals to specialists as needed.

  • Provide you with a receipt to submit for insurance reimbursement.

How can I prepare for a home visit?

· Please fill out the medical intake and release form on the website here.  And send it back to me. If you have any questions or concerns give me a call. The website portal is HIPPA compliant

· It’s helpful if the baby is ready to eat around the time of visit. (I understand that this doesn’t always work out ) I will check in with you by phone in the morning to confirm the appointment and when the baby most recently ate.

· If you would like me to review pumping its helpful to have  the pump available and parts cleaned according to instructions.

· It can be helpful to jot down or record questions as they come to you.

· I love animals but if you think they might be a distraction during the appointment it might be helpful to put them in another room.
