Lactation Consultant SUPPORT


We are thrilled with the success of our private, one-on-one VIRTUAL SUPPORT for all lactation issues.


Virtual sessions can effectively support you with breastfeeding/chestfeeding, pumping, combo feeding, weaning and issues including nipple/breast pain, latch, milk supply, supplementation, weight loss/slow gain, engorgement, tongue tie and more!

If you need a Lactation Consultant who can help you one-on-one in the comfort of your own home or hospital room, then a private virtual session is the right choice for you.  

Angela is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and a Registered Nurse (NICU) who provides expert, non-judgemental breastfeeding support, and helps you reach YOUR breastfeeding goals!
Even if breastfeeding is difficult at first, the right support can make a big difference!

  • VIRTUAL Lactation Consultant Sessions can be as long or as short as you need, there is no minimum time requirement.  Timing is flexible because knowing when baby will be ready to feed is hard to predict!
 
  • Sessions are done using Zoom or Facetime or telephone depending on the support needed.
 
  • A Feeding assessment/plan is usually 1-1.5 hours, and shorter sessions for follow up, questions, issues that don’t require a feeding assessment are also available.
 
  • Consistent support is provided via email/text and follow up sessions are available as needed.  
 

Sessions are based on a rate of $100/hr (tax exempt) 

Sessions may be covered by Private Insurance 
Call 416-300-7064 to schedule your session.



"[Angela's] vast knowledge and warm, non-judgemental approach made me feel completely supported and confident in moving past the challenges and embracing breastfeeding as I had hoped to.... All of the support provided was virtual and it was more valuable than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend Nutmeg Consulting to all parents, especially those expecting their first baby!"

STILL PREGNANT?

THERE’S STILL TIME TO LEARN AND GET PREPARED! 

Breastfeeding Prep consults are available before your baby is born, so you can learn the REAL LIFE information you need to get breastfeeding/chestfeeding/pumping off to a great start.  

Make a  ‘just in case’ plan, so if things don’t go smoothly right from birth, you’ll know what to do!  We support all feeding goals and plans.

“After coming home with my newborn and not being able to get her to latch, I called Angela trying not to panic. She 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.”

"Angela is a SAVIOUR! I was close to throwing in the breastfeeding towel because of sore, damaged nipples when my husband called Angela. Within hours she was 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 her 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."
