Home Visits

You just brought your baby home—why make another office visit? I’ll come to you.

During a home visit for breastfeeding/chestfeeding support, I will do the following:

  • Obtain a HIPAA compliant consent form that we both sign for consent for the home visit

  • Take a full health history of the feeding parent and the baby

  • Observe the baby feeding at the breast/chest, bottle, or both

  • Provide a physical assessment of the breast/chest and of the baby's oral cavity

  • Provide latching and positioning assistance

  • Weigh the baby with a specialized weighted scale for pre and post feeding weights

  • Provide a follow up plan of care after the home visit specifically for your family’s needs that will also be made available to your health care providers so everyone can work as a team

  • Provide you with a Superbill (medical receipt) at the end of the visit and after you pay me that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement

  • Work as an advocate and resource for your family as you proceed along your breastfeeding/chestfeeding journey

Inclusive Practice

You will find me to be non-judgmental and accepting of who you are and what you want for your family!

Every new family I meet reminds me of how wonderful it is to live in a city like New York where there are so many different kinds of families to enjoy!

  • I’m open to all gender and sexual identities, whether you are a breastfeeding parent, a chestfeeding parent, or an exclusively pumping parent

  • I love learning about your cultural traditions and finding out what values are most important to your family.
