Initial Home Visit 

 In the comfort of your own home, I will do a thorough breastfeeding history and assessment. I will watch your baby breastfeed, assess the latch, offer hands-on assistance, do a pre and post weight check with my digital scale, examine your baby's mouth and tongue for optimal function, and create a care plan that works for you. I offer unlimited email/phone follow-up and I am happy to give pep talks when needed.

Fee $275

Follow-up Home Visit 

Sometimes people need extra support, and having a follow-up visit may be just what you need. We can review how things are going, I will watch a feed, do pre and post-feed weight check, and give an updated plan. I will make sure you get all of your questions answered until you feel confident in your breastfeeding journey. Unlimited email/phone follow-up included.

Fee $200

Prenatal Breastfeeding Visit 

I can help you feel ready to breastfeed your new baby. We can discuss your concerns and create a plan to get breastfeeding off to the best start. I will help you identify risk factors to be addressed early. Through my years of helping families with breastfeeding, I have learned that breastfeeding is different for everyone.  Let me help you find what breastfeeding looks like for you.

Fee $190

Bottle Introduction 

Are you going back to work and your baby won't take a bottle? I know how stressful that is. Or would you like to start giving your baby an occasional bottle, and need to figure out how to use your pump. Let me help you come up with a plan that works. I will share my best tips and tricks.

"Lynn is such a fantastic person to have as a resource, and her gentle and warm demeanor helped me feel confident and understood in what was a frustrating​ and tough experience at first. I ended up nursing my daughter for over a year, and I think Lynn had a lot to do with helping me do that."
