Telehealth: Virtual Lactation Consultations

iStock-890254780

In this uncertain time of quarantines and social distancing, moms need to be supported and babies still need to be fed.

The services at Special Addition for lactation consultations are now offered through virtual Telehealth consults. This allows our lactation consultants and mom to see each other visually and discuss concerns and plans.  Our consultants will observe latching, positioning, and feedings just as though you were sitting in our consult rooms.

Virtual lactation consultations will cover all your concerns about your current breastfeeding experience.  If determining baby’s intake of breastmilk at a feeding is one of the goals for your consultation, you will be offered a complimentary loaner BabyWeigh™ scale to use for the virtual consultation.

Please call 512-326-9308 email to schedule.    You will be given an option for day and time as well as the information for prepping for your consult and arranging for a loaner scale, if needed.

The first weeks of a baby’s life are the most important time to establish breastfeeding and milk supply.  Please don’t delay in getting assistance. If you have suddenly begun having problems even after a successful period of breastfeeding, don’t wait and attempt to figure out the problem on your own.  Problems often become exacerbated with delays.

We look forward to supporting you through this world health crisis as well as helping to get you on the road to a successful breastfeeding relationship with your baby!  We are here to help!
