Initial Consultation -New Clients-

Long distance travel consults; Please note due to increased gas charges; we had to add an additional $25.00 travel fee to any home visit outside of the 20-mile radius of 21045 zip code. Thank you for understanding.



IN-HOME-CONSULTATIONS WITH ANN FAUST

Our initial consultation is not time-based but charged per visit. But if you want some idea it usually takes anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours (this time is nearly double for multiples) one-on-one.

During the first visit;


  • Detailed history taking,
  • Examining and evaluating the baby's oral cavity
  • Examining and evaluating the mother's breasts/chest for lactation,
  • Transfer checks for the baby(ies),
  • Latch-on techniques,
  • Normal infant behaviour
  • Exploring the strategies to achieve good breastfeeding/chestfeeding relationship, in addition to your short and long-term breastfeeding goals.
  • Throughout the consult we will answer your questions as they arise, but it may be a good idea to have a small log of questions prior to the consult. Many mothers find it useful to write their questions down either on their phone or a small notebook as they come to their mind.

PWe will(with your permission) send a detailed report to your baby's health-care provider for more rounded care for your baby. Mothers encouraged to follow-up with the lactation consultant within the next 24-36 hours after the first consultation to discuss how the things are progressing and if there ae any further adjustments needed by secure text or phone.
