How we do what we do
How we do what we do, When you work with Advanced Breastfeeding Support you get the benefits of working with a highly specialized and motivated team to help you meet your breastfeeding goals.
We work with women from all aspects of their breastfeeding journey- prenatally to postnatally. Our assistance to clients begins from the first phone call, and lasts until they have met their own personal goals. During the initial prenatal consultation, we spend about 1.5 to 2 hours going over history, assessing risk factors and discussing techniques to optimize breastfeeding success. If we meet a client prenatally, we often times help them in the hospital right after the baby is born and we develop a plan of care that is specific to the needs of each individual client. If we are contacted after the delivery, and there are breastfeeding problems such as jaundice, supplementing, low milk supply, nipple pain/wounds or excessive weight loss, I meet the family in the office or at home. After assessing a feeding, we weigh baby before and after to determine amount of milk the baby is able to transfer. As well as doing a physical assessment of mom and baby, we formulate a plan that is tailored to each dyad (mom/baby/family’s needs).
