Support group vs Consult

  • In support group you can ask general feeding questions vs. a consultation where we come up with an individual plan

  • In support group I can model latching with a doll and crochet breast model and explain how to latch vs a consultation where paperwork has been signed and I can physically help you latch with consent

  • In support group I can check on your flange size in a pump/flange you bring vs a consultation where I measure your nipple and provide flanges for you to try

  • In support group I try my best to talk to each family with general lactation advice vs a consultation where 90 minutes is dedicated to you and your baby

  • In support group I can discuss tongue ties and lip ties vs a consultation where I can perform a suck exam

  • In general if your baby is experiencing high weight loss or if you are experiencing nipple damage it is better to first schedule an in-person lactation consultation. Click the button to cal Ruth and see if you qualify for a covered lactation consultation in your home or at Best Start Birth Center.
