A lactation consult will provide overall care with any complications you or your baby are experiencing with breastfeeding. During your 1 on 1 consult with Tara, she will asses your latch and complete an oral examination of the baby as well as a physical examination of the mom's breasts. These consults include diagnoses and treatments for tongue/lip ties (additional fee for procedure), mastitis, blocked ducts, acid reflux, yeast infection, and colic.
To each visit, Tara brings equipment which is included in the fee. This includes lactation aids, use of scale, literature, and possible prescriptions i.e. APNO cream for sore nipples.
