Lactation Consultant Home Visits

If you’re in the Greater Toronto Area and prefer the convenience of having a Lactation Consultant who can help you in the comfort of your own home, then a private visit is the right choice for you.

Angela Grant Buechner and her team of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (who are also Registered Nurses) provide expert, non-judgemental breastfeeding support, and help you reach YOUR breastfeeding goals!
Even if breastfeeding is difficult at first, the right support can make a big difference!

Lactation Consultant Home Visits are 2 hours and
include 2 weeks of phone/email/text support so you can ask questions as things change and improve.
Call 416-300-7064 to schedule your visit.

Weekend, evening, and ‘urgent’ appointments
are available in your home or hospital room.

Breastfeeding Prep consults are available before your baby is born, if you want to learn the REAL LIFE version of ‘how to get ready to breastfeed’ and we can also discuss and create a ‘just in case’ plan in the event that things don’t go perfectly right from the start….
Contact us to book your Prenatal Breastfeeding Prep Consultation.

Lactation Consultant Home Visits may be covered by Private Insurance.

“Thank you so much for your time and support. You have a special way of being lighthearted and non-judgmental while knowing your stuff and teaching very effectively. I’m so grateful.” ~ Adrienne, Toronto

“After coming home with my newborn and not being able to get her to latch, I called Angela trying not to panic. She came to the house and worked with me on a plan to help me and my baby. Her friendliness put me at ease – something this anxious mama really needed. Her knowledge base is strong – I really appreciated that she has a nursing background in addition to being a lactation consultant and a mom of three! What I really appreciated overall is that she spoke to me from the ‘real world’ and shared information that would help me become more intuitive about my baby as opposed to telling me only one ‘right way’ to do things.” ~ Ania, Toronto

“Angela is a SAVIOR! I was close to throwing in the breastfeeding towel because of sore damaged nipples when my husband called Angela to make a home visit. Within hours she was standing in our daughter’s nursery, coaching me on proper latching techniques. In what seemed like five minutes, Angela had magically solved my problem. It was a night and day change. Breastfeeding for me is now a very pleasurable experience due to Angela’s help. I can’t say enough good things about her. Her easy-going and friendly manner complement her skill and knowledge. It was the best investment I have ever made in my life!!!”Nancy, Toronto
