What does a home visit include
Where possible I will ask you to fill out a profile before we meet, this will give me a brief outline of your history and pregnancy and birth experience. The focus of this consultation is to allow you explore your breastfeeding needs in a relaxed atmosphere at a pace that is suited to you.
Before we meet I will send you a profile to capture a little about you, your baby and babies birth. This allows for maximum time at consultations to be focused on your breast feeding practices. When we meet I will carry out an assessment of a full breast feed, assess your babies wellbeing, examine your baby’s mouth and suck.
This will help determine the cause of any issues you are experiencing and we can work together to put a plan in place and give you the skills to overcome your challenges.
Breastfeeding classes may also be arranged separately without antenatal classes if this is a subsequent pregnancy and you wish to breastfeed
