This postpartum visit consists of basic breastfeeding education, assessment and support, answering any questions, as well as giving printed material if needed.
Ease your mind and allow me to instruct and suggest changes to create maximum comfort and efficiency for you and your baby. Learn how to relax into this special relationship with education and emotional support.
When necessary, I will perform a complete evaluation of the baby’s oral anatomy and suck, and/or mother’s breast/nipples, and lactation history. If there are any lactation problems or concerns, these will be addressed within my scope of practice and referrals made as needed.
Sherri is a RN breastfeeding specialist currently working on preparing for the International Board Certification of Lactation Consultant Exam in 2017.
