Consults can be done in your home, the hospital or on the phone.

You need a consult:

  • When breastfeeding is painful. Pain is NOT normal. Call right away, so that the problem can be corrected and your confidence in what you are doing can be restored.
  • If you feel that your baby is ‘not getting enough milk’. If you have a true low milk supply, this CAN be remedied! Call for a consult as soon as possible-before turning to formula ‘supplementation’. This would merely cause your supply to diminish even further.
  • If you have had some type of breast surgery and you now want to breastfeed.
  • If you have flat or inverted nipples and your baby is having trouble latching on.
  • When your baby is premature and unable to breastfeed.
  • If you have had twins or triplets and you are unsure about how to manage breastfeeding them.
  • If you decided NOT to breastfeed, and now your baby is having trouble with cows-milk based formula. It’s NOT too late to start breastfeeding. Call for assistance with “relactation”

Fees: $35.00 per 1/2 hour
(+ $5/hour driving time if outside theBloomington-Normal city limits)
Payment of fees is due at the time of service.
