Home Visit

Ideally, if there are no latching issues, we would love to check in with you and baby once you are back in the comfort of your own home.  Usually 3-5 days after baby is born is a great time for your first home visit, being proactive can often lead to a positive breastfeeding start.

However, if breastfeeding has been challenging we can turn that around for you!  Maybe things the first few days, weeks or months have not been going well and you are needing some support, a home visit is just for you!  We can help provide you the resources to counsel you thru many of them.
