Be prepared for lactation visit

How To Prepare For Lactation Visit

I’m really glad you chose to schedule a Lactation Consultation with me. I just want to go over a few important details before our visit:

  • My fees are paid at time of visit- I accept cash, check, Mastercard, Visa, Discover Card, and American Express.
  • After the visit, I will provide you with a Superbill that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement for my services. I cannot promise they will do so. Refunds for consults are NOT given under any circumstances!!

Your preparation checklist

  • Write down any questions you may have for me.
  • Prior to the visit, I’ll send you some forms including  a consent form, and a health history. Please fill these out beforehand. This will be helpful and allow us to spend quality time on consult.
  • If you are using a breast pump or nipple shield, please have them nearby for demonstration of assembly and proper use. 
  • If you have any pets, particularly dogs, please put them in another room. Animals can become very possessive and territorial  with babies and I don’t want anyone to get bit!
  • Please have  baby with you for oral exam, latch assessment, pre-feed and post-feed weights, and any other concerns I can address.

After the visit checklist

  • I will provide you a care plan and advise you how to proceed.
  • I will fax a written report to your child’s Pediatrician, OB/GYN, and/or other health care providers. You will get a copy as well.

I look forward to working with you for the next two weeks. You may call, E-mail, and text me as we set forth to meet your breastfeeding goals. I commend you on your choice to breastfeed and am honored to be of assistance.

My Approach

Babies are “precious miracles” to nurture, cherish, and love. Whether you are a 1st time parent or expanding your family, a baby brings many different emotions including: happiness, purpose, hope, and challenge, but let’s face it … babies don’t come with instruction manuals.

Breastfeeding can foster an intimate bond and provide complete and optimal nutrition. It requires patience, practice, and continued support to be successful. Precious Miracles Lactation offers support, education, and guidance for your breastfeeding family- all in the privacy of your home. Serving Keller, Southlake, & Westlake,Texas.
