Aspire Lactation offers an Antenatal consult to discuss your breastfeeding goals and fears. Do you wish to breastfeed your baby but don’t know how to go about it? Did you have trouble meeting your breastfeeding goals with previous children? Have you had surgery to augment or reduce your breasts and wondering if or how you can breastfeed? We can meet to assess your medical and surgical history and make a plan to help you achieve your goals.
Some birthing practices such as epidural medications and induction of labour can impact on breastfeeding and milk supply. We can discuss ways to help minimise this. This visit will take approximately one hour. Best booked for 34-36 weeks of pregnancy
This visit will involve an obstetric, medical and surgical history on both you and your baby/babies. I will look at your baby’s weight and growth, along with a general examination of their mouth. We will observe a feed, so this is best achieved when your baby hasn’t fed for around one hour prior to your appointment.
With your permission, I will work with your health care team (GP/Obstetrician/Paediatrician) to keep them informed of our findings so they can follow up on any medical issues. This consult fee includes phone call/email follow-ups over the next two weeks. Visit time: approximately 1.5-2 hours.
Virtual (online) $170
Follow-up consults are recommended when further issues are identified, or if new issues arise. These rates are discounted, as I am familiar with your case history.
Virtual (online) $90
Back to work consult
Returning to work and wondering how to continue breastfeeding? Advice on pumping and maintaining your breastfeeding relationship can be given via phone or Skype. Approximately 45 mins.
Office consults are another way for families to see me for breastfeeding help, and for those who live further away than where I travel to.
Because of space, siblings will not be able to attend this visit, however you are welcome to bring your support person (e.g. partner) with you to the appointment. My office is located in Tarragindi.
Initial visit $170
