What to Expect at a Consultation

Depending on where you live, I will either come to your home at a 
time when your baby is likely to be hungry or, if you are out 
of my travel area, we can schedule an office appointment at the Om Baby Center in Camp Hill. 

We will begin by taking a full history of your birth and breastfeeding experience. I will do a visual and physical assessment of your breasts and the baby's mouth. I will observe a feeding and assist with breastfeeding techniques. Using a digital scale, I will weigh your baby before and after a feeding and measure how much breastmilk the baby transfers. You will have an ample opportunity to ask questions. Together, we will develop a care plan to help improve your breastfeeding experience. 

After the consultation, a copy of the assessment, report and care plan will be sent to your health care providers. You are also welcome to call me after a consultation if you experience additional problems or have other questions. 

Bottom line: I am here to support the mother's goals whatever they may be. To schedule an appointment, call me at 717-712-6822.
