Clinical Lactation and Breastfeeding Assessments generally take 30 minutes and are covered under the Medical Services Plan. One of our physicians will take a detailed mother and infant history and may observe as you breastfeed your baby. In Office visits include an accurate Test Feed. Most babies will be weighed before and after each feed in order to measure how much milk the baby is transferring while at the breast. Our aim is to correctly identify and diagnose the cause of your breastfeeding difficulties and then offer you the best evidence based managements.
Follow up appointments are arranged as needed in conjunction with the primary care provider.
Our Clinic is referral based, meaning that you require a referral from your Doctor, Nurse Practitioner or midwife.
