International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, who have extensive experience in helping moms and babies meet their breastfeeding goals, offer private lactation consultations at Virtua. Appointments are 60 minutes and are offered 3 days a week.
The goal of private lactation consultation is to help breastfeeding mothers overcome problems, and to offer support in helping them reach their breastfeeding goals.
Following are challenges that usually can be addressed in a 60-minute lactation consultation:
• Questions about pumping and milk supply
• Minimal weight gain in the first few weeks after birth
• Sore or damaged nipples
• Breast engorgement
• Calming a fussy baby
• Returning to work and strategies to continue breastfeeding
• Nursing multiples or other challenging situations
If possible please try not to feed the baby before the appointment so the Lactation Consultant can assess the latch and the feeding during the appointment.
Consultations are offered by appointment at the Breastfeeding Resource Center on the campus of Virtua Voorhees Hospital at 100 Bowman Drive, Voorhees. (Park in Lot B)
