Services & Fees:

All private consultations are in your home.  The fee is $225 for your initial consultation ($250 twins), which usually lasts between 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 hours.  This enables the lactation consultant to get to the root of your concerns and it gives them time to create an individualized lactation plan for you.   Telephone, text and email follow-up is included in the initial fee for as long as you require it.  We all breastfed our babies and we want you to know we are here for you for as long as it takes.   We highly value the continuity of long-term support and care for our clients.

Partners and your other support people are welcome at both classes and private consultations at no extra fee.  Consultation and class fees are due at time of service; check, cash or credit card via paypal.  Gift certificates available.

A follow-up appointment can be made in your home. The fee for this service is $150 and the appointment lasts about 1 to 1 ½ hours.

3 In-Home Consultations Package – $375 (Payable at first or at second visit.  Non-refundable after second visit completed.)

Telephone Consult – $30 for 30 minutes.  Call for details.
