Postnatal virtual

We will start by discussing feeding is going and your feeding goals.  My advice will be in line with the latest evidence and we will devise a sustainable feeding plan together.  I will always be non-judgemental and compassionate in my approach. 

During the consultation I will 

  • Observe a breastfeed and provide you with a demonstration to help improve any problems with your positioning and latch. 
  • Discuss with you your baby’s nappy output, weight gain and other indicators that they are thriving. 
  • Visually assess your breasts and nipples for common breast and nipple conditions.  
  • If I suspect any problems with your breasts/ nippples/ your baby I will refer you to your general practitioner. 
  • Discuss evidenced based information around: pumping, hand expression or formula milk feeding if required. 
  • Discuss your mental health, wellbeing and help you with self-care. 
  • Devise an individualised sustainable feeding plan with you. 

To help you get the most out of your appointment, write down any feeding queries/ concerns you have beforehand and we can discuss them in detail. 

Following the consultation you will receive 

  • An individualised feeding plan. 
  • A package of relevant resources.
  • Email support for 2 weeks. 
  • 20% off a follow up phone or virtual consultation.
