  • Telehealth consultations are available now.
  • Home visits can not be scheduled at this time due to the state wide shelter in place order.      

Telehealth Consultation
Held online via live video stream $150.00/$180.00* Includes feeding evaluation, help with latch and positioning techniques, visual assessment of infant structure and function, an individualized plan of care specific to your situation, and referral(s) to appropriate care providers to help correct issues.

Initial Comprehensive Consultation (In Your Home)
Held in your home $195.00/$225.00 twins* (travel fees may apply).
Initial consult usually lasts 2 – 3 hours (longer for twins), depending on the complexity and the needs of the family.

Comprehensive initial consultation includes a feeding evaluation including help with latch and positioning techniques, a pre- and post-feed weight to assess weight gain and determine milk intake, an evaluation for tongue/lip-tie (tethered oral tissues) and structural issues** that contribute to breastfeeding/chestfeeding and lactation difficulty, a plan of care specific to your situation, and referrals to appropriate care providers to help correct issues.

Twins or Higher Order Multiples
*Add $30.00 for each additional baby.

Follow-up Consultation
Held in your home $195.00/$225.00 twins* (travel fees may apply).

Sometimes in-person follow-up visits are needed to keep breastfeeding/chestfeeding and lactation on track, and will include feeding assessment, weight check, and adjustment to plan of care, as necessary.

**Structural issues are asymmetries and/or myofascial restrictions in the baby’s body that make it difficult for them to feed well (or not at all in some cases), be calm and relaxed, or sleep well.

Travel Fees
