How can a Lactation Consultant help me?
A lactation consultation is recommended for mothers and babies who are experiencing difficulties with breastfeeding, or who simply need some extra support and reassurance.
!Do not accept any pain or discomfort during breastfeeding!
Breastfeeding can be challenging but it should be joyful for mother and baby.
If you are experiencing any problems or discomforts when breastfeeding your baby, then look for help from a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

Don't worry if you don't get a chance to complete this form or if you leave some questions blank, we will discuss everything during the consultation. Gathering some background information will save some time during the consultation with more time left for breastfeeding observation, guidance, and advice.
