MV Breastfeeding Support
Welcome! Congratulations on the arrival of your little one.
Customized infant feeding support in the comfort of your own home.
A Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) can help you with:
During an in home consultation we will discuss, practice and make a plan specific to your breastfeeding needs and overall infant feeding goals.
Melanie follows the CDC protocols and will be wearing masks, gloves (during direct contact) and practicing proper sanitation of all equipment. Your family will be screened before your home visit and it is asked that all adults present for the appointment are wearing mask.
Virtual visits are a great option for those of you who are feeling more comfortable with a socially distance visit. During a virtual visit we are able to discuss, practice and create a plan for you to reach your breastfeeding goals, with the help of a HIPPA complaint video conferencing software.
"Melanie's home visit, a month after our son was born, was exactly what we needed to help us help him be a happier baby. She not only discussed with us our baby's nutritional needs, but also explained ways to help our son develop more restful sleep habits. Melanie's open, calm, and knowledgeable demeanor was so reassuring. And her availability for follow-up gave us real peace of mind."
"After meeting with several lactation consultants in the hospital, I was left with lots of wonderful, but confusing information. Having a home visit really clarified things, and helped me set a plan to reach my feeding goals!"
"My husband and I took a prenatal breastfeeding class with Melanie at the Little Lovage Club. It was informative and to the point, and made us feel prepared for our babies arrival and to be successful with feedings. We look forward to working with her again after our baby is born."
