How to prepare for your In-Home consult
Preparing for a visit at your home shouldn't be stressful. Most likely you have a new baby, and the last thing you need to worry about is "tidying up"! A few things, though, can make the visit smoother for all...
Adequate lighting helps, to examine how the baby is feeding and an oral exam. I might use a penlight or a headlamp to check baby's mouth to assist my visualization.
Please attempt to feed your baby approximately two to two and a half hours prior to the consult so that your baby will be interested in feeding but not unsettled. If your baby is getting hungry close to my arrival time, nurse briefly or give a small amount of milk from a bottle.
Please identify a table or counter that we can use to place my scale. The scale measures 16 inches by 23.6 inches. (This does not have to be in the same room as we meet)
Please ensure that there is a chair or couch I can use in the room that we are working in.
I am a huge animal lover but a stranger working closely with their new baby can be stressful for them. I require animals to be located in separate room from our consultation for safety purposes.
"Cathy has helped me immensely even after just one at home consultation. The convenience of meeting in the comfort of your own home as a first time mom is wonderful. Cathy empowered me with information and resources that put my anxieties about breastfeeding at ease. She is kind and compassionate. Highly recommend!" ~ Mallory B
