I can tell you hands down that honeys don't know what they don't know and definitely don't know what they need in postpartum too.
Breastfeeding is one of them. Doesn't matter how much I educate you on what's to come it won't sink in until your babee is in your arms latching away every hour on the hour.
Your due date month is getting closer?
Have you considered your lactation support...prenatally and postpartum. Breastfeeding begins in pregnancy with colostrum around 16-20 weeks of gestation.
The intensity of feeding so frequently for the first few weeks of life is exhausting to say the least but a learning curve that should be met with grace and skilled lactation support.
Hey Honey 👋🏾
Lock in that support to get you off to a breast start. Developing a relationship makes it so much easier to reach out when things seem off, if you have questions or maybe needing reassurance you're feeding your babee the right way.
Keep reading for a few reasons why private lactation support is necessary for your birth plan.
🍯 Breastfeeding is natural but it is a skilled that needs to be taught to you in more than 15-20 minute visits. I offer private on demand support to help honeys learn to feed their babee for up to 2 hours. In this time I’m able to observe a feed assessment, assist with positioning and latching techniques.
🍯 As a private business, I spend time with you prenatally gathering everything we need to know to help us create a intake form for medical history and create a care plan for you to meet your breastfeeding goals. We meet prenatally to begin education and make a plan for your feeding or pumping goals.
🍯Consults assist with but not limited to flange/nipple sizing, hand expression demonstrations, pumps, bottles and more before your babee gets here to make sure you have the things you need to begin your journey.
🍯 I am the plug to the Maternal Child Health community. If I can’t do it, I definitely know someone qualified to assist you.
🍯 We tend to have better availability and work into the evenings or around the clock if preferred. I have honeys book me for on demand support which means I can be there immediately after babee is born or within 48 hours of life.
🍯 I work with you where you will be breastfeeding the most. At home. I teach the basics without all the accessories. Then when you have developed a rhythm we build all the things in if you even need them at all.
