A typical Lactation Consultation with Tina lasts between one and two hours, depending on your personal goals and your baby’s needs. Home visits are not timed, however, office visits are charged at an hourly rate. See rates below.
This visit includes a full health history of both Mother and baby including any surgeries, medications, screening for possible abnormalities of anatomy or physiology that may play a role in the breastfeeding dynamic.
The Lactation Consultation also includes gentle hands-on assistance with latch and feeding, as well as a Written Care Plan tailored especially to meet the unique needs of you and your baby.
Home visits are a flat fee of $180. No time limit.
Tina accepts all major credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, cash or check.
* Sliding scale available for those in need.
Follow-up by phone: Free
Follow-up at home: $99 (no time limit)
Home visits offer the advantage of practicing feeding your baby in the environment you occupy most, in the comfort of your own home. These visits are not timed, so you can relax and we can focus on the task at hand. I find it advantageous to disregard the time, as newborns are often sleepy and do not feed by the clock!

There are many situations in which a breast pump may be needed temporarily or long-term. Assistance with, and instruction on how to use you breast pump, fitting you with the best pump for your particular needs, and how to properly express and store your breast milk are also covered in your Lactation Consultation with Tina.
