Lactation Counseling Support
What Can a Parent Expect during a consult/evaluation/therapy?
Infant Consult (nominal fee, not billed through insurance)
An infant consult is approximately 30 minutes and will give parents an idea of any structural concerns (tonsils, tongue tie, lip tie, buccal tie, palatal concerns) and any functional feeding and swallowing causes. Families are always sent home with exercises to practice including stretching on any muscles that are restricted or limited in movement, chewing exercises and/or suck training. A report is not written up and a referral from a primary physician is not needed. A screening form is filled out and is sent over to any external providers that are recommended (ENT, dentist, etc).
