It is important that you feel comfortable with the visit. As a client, you have rights just as you do when visiting a doctor. The lactation consultant will:

  • Consult with you in private. You must give verbal permission for partner or additional support persons to be present during consult.

  • Create a positive learning environment.

  • Be empathetic.

  • Ask permission for you to remove your shirt AND tell you exactly “what” she is doing and “why” with every part of the examination while wearing medical gloves.

  • Ask permission before touching your body IF required for medical exam.

It is always recommended that mothers-to-be take a prenatal breastfeeding class so that they go into breastmilk feeding with the utmost confidence and the knowledge of what is expected once the baby is born.

A prenatal (before the baby is born) breastmilk feeding home visit/infant feeding class consultation will go over:

  • The process of how the breast and your body make milk

  • Mom’s health history that may have impact on milk-making and production

  • The difference of colostrum and mature milk – what to expect when heavy mature milk volumes “come-in” more abundantly

  • How to tell when your baby is hungry and wants to breastfeed

  • How to breastfeed /provide breastmilk

  • What to expect with baby’s first latch

  • What to expect at home once discharged from birth center or hospital setting

  • How to tell if your baby is getting enough breast milk

  • How to maintain a healthy breast milk supply

  • How to avoid the common problems of breastfeeding

  • When to seek lactation help

  • Breast pump education, how to select best option based on your specific needs

  • When to use your breast pump in the postpartum period, as needed for engorgement relief or IF  clinically indicated to help establish and support milk supply

  • Breastfeeding/breastmilk feeding possibilities and choices when returning to work or school

  • Give you written instructions or care plans to follow, only as needed or indicated clinically

  • Explain how to get in touch with her for additional help or questions

  • Give you information about local resources and support groups
