The Lactation Connection prenatal consultation metro denver

Prenatal Consultation — $75

A prenatal lactation consultation is an excellent way to focus on your unique circumstances.  We will review what to expect after delivery and in the first days.  We will address specific situations such as breast surgeries, or other medical history that might impact breastfeeding.

We also recommend that you take a prenatal breastfeeding class.

The Lactation Connection initial breastfeeding consult metro denver

Initial Consultation — $190*

HOME VISIT ~90 MINUTES

The first visit typically takes 90 minutes.  Medical history is completed before the visit.  In the comfort of your home, we fully assess the current feeding routine.  We complete a physical assessment of you and your baby.  We weigh your baby before and after feeding.  We observe a full feeding by whatever means you are currently feeding your baby. Then, we discuss and develop a personalized feeding plan to support your feeding goals.

Your initial consult includes 2 weeks of follow-up phone/email/secure messaging support.  A more in-depth evaluation is best done with a follow-up consult.

*There is a $50 surcharge for twins/multiples.

Follow-up Consultation — $130*

HOME VISIT ~60 MINUTES

Visits typically take 60 minutes and we re-evaluate the initial feeding plan. This is an opportunity to see if the plan is manageable for you, if progress is being made, or if other changes are recommended.
