We know 'virtual' lactation support sounds strange at first, but our clients have been completely thrilled at how well Angela's private, one-on-one, video calls have been working to help with all feeding issues.
Angela has always been a 'hands-off' Lactation Consultant and prefers to demonstrate and guide clients to feel comfortable latching and feeding their own babies. Research shows that this leads to better outcomes, because you will still be able to feed and trouble shoot even when we're not there for every feed.
Angela's virtual sessions are very different that what others provide and they have been just as effective as in-person visits for all feeding issues including newborn feeding assessments, latch issues, engorgement, pumping support, tongue tie assessment, painful feeds, supplementation, milk supply concerns, combo feeding, bottle feeding / tube feeding / cup feeding and anything else that comes up during your feeding journey all the way to weaning!
The flexibility and convenience of virtual support is also helpful when trying to schedule sessions around your baby's feeding times (we text to figure out when to start based on when baby is actually ready to feed!). Virtual sessions can be as short or as long as needed (no minimum) so even if you have a smaller issue, you can meet with a Lactation Consultant one-on-one whenever you need to have your questions answered!
Angela has been able to provide such effective, convenient and safe, one-on-one support that the choice to provide mostly virtual sessions allows her to help even more parents every day, all over the world! If you want the convenience of having a Lactation Consultant who can help you in the comfort of your own home, at any stage of your journey, then a private virtual session is the right choice for you.
We use Zoom, FaceTime, or telephone depending on the issue.
Urgent support is also available daily!
Home visits may be available depending on location (West End, Etobicoke, Downtown), and Nurse Practitioner home visits are also possible across the GTA East to Pickering!) for feeding support and much more!
Sessions may be covered by Private Insurance depending on your plan.
Breastfeeding Prep consults are available before your baby is born, so you can learn the PRACTICAL information you need right now to get breastfeeding/chestfeeding/pumping off to a great start and avoid issues!
Make a ‘just in case’ plan, so if things don’t go smoothly right from birth, you’ll know what to do, or get help making a feeding plan that works for you. We support all feeding goals and plans!
