Lactation Visit


Madam Doula’s lactation services are provided by our expert CLCs (certified lactation consultants) in the comfort of your home.

Prenatal Lactation Services:

If you’re planning to breastfeed, this service is for you. Our two-hour, hands-on, personalized education session includes the following: 

Fundamentals of breastfeeding:
  • How to latch the baby on well to the breast

  • How to position the baby, and how to use pillows to support the baby and yourself

  • How to build a strong milk supply

  • How often to feed the baby, and how to read your baby’s hunger cues

  • How to know if your baby is getting enough milk

  • Preventing common problems

  • The basics of pumping and storing breastmilk

  • How to use bottles and pacifiers in a way that supports breastfeeding

  • How to involve your partner or spouse

  • Running practice scenarios

Benefits of an in-person, private visit:

  • Learn in the comfort of your own home.

  • Being at the center of the learning process, ensures you learn at your own pace and retain more information.

  • If you’d like, we can do a flange fitting, so you know what size flange to use with your breast pump.

  • I can help set up and stock your nursing station.

  • If you’re interested in collecting and storing colostrum (early milk) before the baby is born (starting at 37 weeks), I can get you started with a colostrum collection kit.

Learning Styles:

We all have different ways of processing information.  The Prenatal Lactation Visit is built around this idea.

  • Visual- I provide videos for you to watch (i.e. how to latch on a baby, a baby showing hunger cues, etc.)

  • Reading/Writing- I provide a 20 page ‘Intro To Breastfeeding’ booklet for you to keep.  You can write notes on it during the visit, and read it later for review.

  • Auditory- We will discuss the main components of breastfeeding during the visit.

  • Kinesthetic- During the visit we do a hands-on, simulated breastfeeding session.

Numerous studies show that breastfeeding knowledge significantly increases breastfeeding success!

The Prenatal Lactation Visit costs $200.  Feel free to have anyone else join (i.e. spouse, friend).
