Postpartum Consultation Details
Postpartum consultations are individual and based on your needs. Before we meet you will fill out a basic form so that I can arrive best prepared to help.
Each visit will include at least the following unless you choose otherwise:
- Positioning / latch assessment
- Breast assessment
- Suck assessment
- Full well baby assessment
- Baby weight – pre and post feed if indicated
- Written feeding plan for mom and baby if needed
- Handouts on any of the material we cover
- 14 days of follow up email and text support
This consultation can be useful even if you feel all is well and you’d just like to see a professional before your 6 week check up. The World Health Organization recommends visits from a health care professional in the first 3 weeks of life for well mothers and babies. You deserve support and reassurance, there’s a lot happening right now!
If you are having issues many of these things can be easily resolved in the home. I always forward a summary of our consult to your Pediatrician. If needed I will provide additional appropriate referrals.
Please prepare by writing down any and ALL questions you have. I want you to get as much out of our time as possible. No question is too small and sometimes it’s the little things that make a huge difference!
