It is completely common to feel uncomfortable asking questions about breastfeeding. However, this discomfort will only continue until you talk to someone who has experience in these matters. All of our lactation consulting experts are highly trained in assisting first time mothers with breastfeeding their newborn babies with firsthand experience.
Lactation Coaching Appleton, WI
Lactation coaching is a growing segment of the medical field that works to help mothers naturally feed their newborn children. Breastfeeding rates in Wisconsin have increased rapidly with more mothers wishing to breast feed than ever before. While most lactation specialists work in hospitals, there are also many private practices, like us, that provide a much higher quality experience when learning how to naturally breast feed your newborn baby. For some women, it's difficult to produce enough milk for their child, while others struggle with other breastfeeding difficulties such as excessive sucking or positioning issues. Our professionals at You Kiss We Tell can help by making sure the baby is latched on properly and ensuring that the quality of the milk is ideal for baby. Lactation specialists may also be able to offer information about how much milk a baby needs at each feeding time and how often to feed them. If you are having troubles with breastfeeding, our coaches here in Wisconsin can help guide you in the right direction.
What is a lactation consultant?
A lactation consultant is a professional who specializes in helping new mothers, their babies, and families with breastfeeding. They provide private consultations for new mothers and their families and are available for appointments for on-site visits. Lactation consultants can also help to establish infant feeding practices for new mothers who are not able to exclusively breastfeed and may need to supplement with formula or use pumped milk from the mother’s prior feeding sessions. Lactation consultants often have advanced training in breastfeeding management. If you are having trouble including your baby in the feeding process, or if your breasts are not producing enough milk for the baby, then our lactation coaches may be able to help with this.
Is it worth it to get lactation consulting?
Lactation consultants can offer peace of mind for new mothers during a potentially stressful time. Our lactation coaches here at You Kiss We Tell Ultrasound can answer questions, give advice, and help troubleshoot breastfeeding problems. Even if you're a seasoned pro, sometimes having a lactation consultant weigh in if feeding issues come up can be helpful. Our lactation coaches are experienced professionals who have received special training as well as have firsthand knowledge in breastfeeding. While our coaches don't give medical advice or diagnose conditions, they counsel mothers on the basics of how to feed their newborns based on their individual needs and the type of delivery. The experts at You Kiss We Tell also offer encouragement and practical tips for dealing with common problems like sore nipples or difficulty latching onto an infant's mouth. They may even provide hands-on assistance by demonstrating techniques that might work for when baby arrives home and mom is doing it all alone in the middle of the night. Don't hesitate to reach out for something that could have a lifelong impact.
Is lactation consulting expensive?
Lactation consultants are typically between $150 and $350 per hour providing a number of great services and benefits. However, at You Kiss We Tell Ultrasound, lactation coaching is only $109 for an hour session or $200 for a 2-hour session. As majority of the hard work is done in the first couple sessions, we do offer a 25% discount on return visits! Call or book online for breastfeeding coaching support.
