Prenatal Breastfeeding Group
2 Hour Class - $60
This is a 2-hour interactive breastfeeding class held in small intimate groups of no more than five mothers/couples. The classes are held near Silver Lake where refreshments and light snacks will be offered. The content of this class includes, but is not limited to: basic breastfeeding anatomy and physiology, positioning and latch, common concerns, work issues, nutrition, and pumps and equipment. The mothers should expect to participate using model babies and are encouraged to ask questions in order to gain the most from this class.
Prenatal Breastfeeding Private
2 Hour In-home private class - $120
The content and materials covered in this class are the same as the group class. Basic breastfeeding anatomy and physiology, positioning and latch, common concerns, work issues, nutrition, and pumps and equipment are all topics discussed in this class. This class is different in that it is offered in the comfort of your own home on a one to one basis. This class is allotted more time for questions and practice that relate to the mothers specific concerns or situations.
Each 15 min session- $20
A skype consult is not suggested for an initial visit. However, the skype consult can be useful for follow-up visits and for general questions related to latching and positions, pumping and nipple pain. This service may vary depending on your computer set-up.
Initial visit - $200 (2-3 hours)
Follow up visit up to 1 hr- $100 (After first hour- $5 each 15 minutes)
During the initial home visit the Lactation Consultant will assess the history and birth story of the mother and baby, do a physical exam of the mother and baby, observe the mother and baby together and make appropriate suggestions based on these assessments. The initial visit typically lasts 2-3 hours. A follow-up visit will consist of re-evaluating prior suggestions and addressing any other concerns of the mother.
2 Hour Class- $60
Back to Work & Your Breastfed Baby
This class will help prepare you for returning to work after your maternity leave. This class will go over topics, which include pumping and storage, keeping up your supply, childcare, transitioning your breastfed baby to childcare, California breastfeeding laws and more. This class is intended for the post partum period, but may be taken while pregnant. Out of respect for others, I kindly ask that you arrange for childcare during class time.
