Lactation consulting

Types of Consultations

Rachel Johnson, RN, IBCLC

Prenatal Breastfeeding Counseling

  • During this one hour appointment, we will discuss your health history, previous breastfeeding experiences, & any questions that you might have. The goal is to set you up for breastfeeding success! This session should be scheduled within the final month of pregnancy.


​Lactation Consultation

  • This is the most common service requested. During the consultation, I will ask for information regarding you and your baby’s health history, weigh the baby, assess a feeding, determine how much milk was transferred with a post-feeding weight & discuss a plan of care. I will also address any questions you have regarding pumping or other special concerns. If needed, a follow up appointment may be scheduled.


Starting Solids 

  • During this session we will discuss how and when to start giving your baby solid foods. We will also discuss readiness, common allergies and sensitivities, feeding strategies, tips & tricks.


Returning to Work

  • This session will help you make a plan for pumping when you are separated from your baby. We will discuss frequency of pumping, your rights as a breastfeeding employee/student, & storage guidelines.


​Weaning

  • ​Weaning is a natural step in the breastfeeding process but sometimes can be difficult. It's timing is a personal choice and I will support you & assist in making it an easy transition for everyone.
