Baby Prep™ Prenatal Sessions

Lactation Consultation

The Baby Prep™ philosophy acknowledges that each birthing experience is unique and therefore, your childbirth education should be unique and tailored to your specific needs and concerns.

Baby Prep Lactation Consultation

No appointments until after July 27

We are on a family vacation until July 27 so all lactation consultation requests will be attended to after that date. If you need immediate help, please contact your health care provider or doctor for assistance.

Lactation Consultation Info

As new parents-to-be, we often focus all of our attention on the time leading up to the birth of our baby and little time is spent on the questions following their birth. This postpartum visit/video-call offers the opportunity to help answer these questions, talk about your birth experience and help ease the transition into parenthood.

  • Helping new parents feel confident in caring for their newborn(s)
  • Breastfeeding support and feeding plans
  • Provide a demo or stand by assistance regarding certain aspects of baby care
  • Provide the opportunity for the couple to sit down and talk about their birth experience and the feelings that may follow

If the assessed situation is out of a Lactation Consultants and/or registered nurses scope of practice, you may be encouraged to talk to another health care professional(s).

Can I pre-book a lactation consultation before my baby is born?

We understand the fear and anxiety that surrounds feeding your newborn, but we request that you wait till your little one is born and you are in need of assistance. Due to scheduling, we can only book in those who have immediate needs.

Who are our lactation consultants?
