Pittsburgh Doula Network has IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants) available for private in-home visitation. She will sit with you for 60-90 minutes to offer education and guidance, and create a care plan if breastfeeding isn’t going the way you envisioned. We are very pleased to be able to offer 2 lactation consultants that do home visits in Pittsburgh. Some common reasons for a lactation visit:
- Baby not latching well
- Sore/cracked/bleeding nipples
- Sleepy baby at breast
- Increase a low milk supply
- Managing engorgement, plugged ducts and mastitis
Lactation Consultants are also available as part of our Breastfeeding Bootcamp package, where they will spend an 8 hour day with you, supporting you at each breastfeeding session plus provide all the helpful duties of a Postpartum Doula.
