Thanks for booking a lactation consultation with me!
A few quick things before we meet.
Check your email! You will need to electronically fill out my paperwork (consent forms and health history) and also download the Spruce App before we meet. Spruce allows us to communicate securely before and after our visit. If we are meeting virtually, our video consult happens on Spruce as well.
If we are meeting in person, please bring along any gear you normally use to feed your baby. If you are pumping and we need to check your flange fit or do some pump instruction, bring the pump along as well as your flanges/tubes/bottles.
If we will be working on latching or bottle feeding during our visit your baby doesn’t need to be super hungry, but they DO need to be willing to eat so please don’t give baby a full feeding within an hour before we meet- snacks are preferred!
Also, if we are working to help your baby with feedings, please remember to bring your baby along. I know, I know, it seems obvious but…
My office is at 260 Boston Post Road, Suite 1, Wayland MA 01778 and there will be more info in your confirmation email.
If we are meeting virtually you will need to be in a room with good lighting so I can see you and baby. You may need another adult to be your “cameraman” so I can get a good look at what’s happening from different angles. Have everything nearby and ready that you’ll need or want to discuss/use during the visit (bottles, pumps, nipple shield, etc).
If your baby is napping when our visit starts this is absolutely fine as it gives us time to chat before we dive in. Baby doesn’t need to be present for the consult if we’re only working on pumping, weaning, or other things that don’t require me to see a feeding.
As with all virtual video services please make sure you have other programs and windows closed on your computer/tablet/phone that we are using in order to have the best connection.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
