What is an IBCLC?
An IBCLC is a highly skilled health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. IBCLCs study for years and must demonstrate specific knowledge and clinical skills in human lactation. You can find out more about IBCLCs at www.ilca.com
What happens during a consultation?
Lactation consultations are offered in the privacy and comfort of your home. During the consult we discuss:
Your pregnancy and delivery history as it relates to breastfeeding
Your general health and physical assessment
Your baby’s health and history of feedings and behaviors
Observation of a latch and feeding
Discussion of observations and options for the issues noticed
Development of a specific plan of care to assist the dyad in achieving their goals
Collaboration with the mother’s and the infant’s careproviders as needed
Follow-up phone calls and/or emails
Provided in a convenient location or in home. The infant is weighed on a highly sensitive digital scale and the weight is noted. The infant is then nursed for a normal feeding. The infant is re-weighed to determine adequate intake of milk. *This is the only accurate way to determine how much an infant is taking at each feeding. You cannot pump to see how much they are getting! Babies take food differently than the pump pulls it from you.
