Telehealth Live Video Consult

Telehealth Live Video Consult

Prenatal or Lactation Visits are conducted via a HIPAA compliant, secure, live video calling platform.

You will need a good internet connection and a Smart Phone, Laptop, or Tablet with a camera.

If at all possible you should have another person present to hold the device while you feed your baby during the call.

You will also need good lighting in the room you are in, and ideally a flashlight or small light available.

Telehealth Consults are typically 1 - 1 1/2 hours long.

In a telehealth lactation visit:

We will discuss your reasons for the visit, and your baby's latest weight, work together to assess your baby's oral function and your breasts as needed, and help you to learn how to latch most effectively. I will observe you breastfeeding and guide you in making adjustments.

I will address your concerns and questions, and evaluate any challenges you are facing. We will discuss strategies to best help you meet YOUR breastfeeding goals, whatever they are. We will make a customized care plan together before we finish the session so that you have a clear plan and next steps, and I will email a copy of it to you after the visit.

After our consultation, if indicated, I will send a report to your baby's primary healthcare provider, and/or yours as relevant, so that your family's care is coordinated within your healthcare team.

We will stay in touch over the next few days to evaluate how things are progressing and discuss any changes needed in the care plan. Follow-up visits are often helpful and can be scheduled as needed.

Please contact me to schedule a telehealth live video visit, and don't forget to fill out the online intake form so that I can get background information in order to focus on you and your baby during the actual visit. I have a wide range of scheduling possibilities, including week days and weekends, and can usually fit you in within 48 hours if needed so that we can address your breastfeeding issues right away.

Payment is due by the time of visit. (Except AETNA participants.)
