Postpartum Lactation Consult

90 MINUTES In-home ($185) or In-office ($125), Twins add $25

A 90 minute private consult for parents and their babies (partner/support person welcome and encouraged to be present). Consults are held in your home, hospital, or in our office in Sorrento Valley/Mira Mesa.

What we do together in a Postpartum Consult:

First visits are typically 90 minutes to give us time for a thorough history, a feeding, and a plan of care on how to move forward on your feeding journey. Included is:

  • An evaluation of baby’s suck for range of motion and function

  • An assessment of feeding, including latch and positioning

  • A weighed feeding: baby is weighed before and after a feeding to measure transfer of milk

  • A personalized plan of care for baby and mom

  • A report sent to your care provider(s)

  • Paperwork to file with your insurance. Some insurance companies will reimburse you for our services - check with your provider to see if lactation visits are covered. If you have AETNA PPO, or a referral from UCSD HMO, we will bill your insurance for you.
