Our lactation consultations are provided by International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. The IBCLC credential provides assurance that the consultant has met the highest standards of clinical training and experience. She will also collaborate with other members of the health care team to provide comprehensive lactation support.

An initial consultation begins with a complete history, an anatomical breast assessment related to lactation, and weight gain assessment of the baby. During the consult, the baby’s ability to transfer an adequate amount of milk will be evaluated and the mother is guided in how to help her baby achieve optimal milk transfer without experiencing pain. All of mother’s breastfeeding concerns are addressed and an individualized plan of care is developed specifically for her and her baby’s needs.

You'll love coming to Babyology for your consultation. Our home-like exam rooms are very relaxing. Plus, we are easy to find, you can park at the door without having to carry your newborn baby and baby gear through a large parking lot, or having to find space in an elevator. Beyond the physical comforts, our staff will support you through your transition as a new parent with personal care that cannot be replicated in a large facility. We believe you are our neighbor, and if you don't know us already, we share a mutual friend.

What your friends are saying about Babyology:

 

"When my daughter was 1 week old, I was ready to give up breastfeeding. I went to see Vicki, and she changed everything. Breastfeeding felt stressful and impossible before I went to Babyology. Many tears were shed before Vicki's help. Now my daughter rarely gets any formula. I couldn't be more grateful. They help you reach your goals with advice, kindness, and encouragement."

What to bring to your consult:

  • Dress comfortably for nursing your baby.
  • Bring your baby ready to feed, and a stocked diaper bag with a change of clothes for baby.
  • If you have a companion to help, they are welcome to attend the consult with you.
  • The baby's older siblings will be happier with a caregiver.

Consultations are by appointment only.
