We’ve changed a few things since launching our video breastfeeding classes this last August.  With some great suggestions and survey feedback, we came up with a few ways to make viewing the classes even more convenient!  Lactation Link has services to help prepare you prenatally as well as provide breastfeeding teaching and support once baby arrives.

Video Breastfeeding Classes

In-person Breastfeeding Basics Class

I offer a live format of Breastfeeding Basics 1-2 times monthly in Highland, UT.  This is a 2-hour course that offers interaction and hands-on demonstration.  We use life-sized baby dolls for position practice and there is a Q&A portion at the end.  There are also grab-bags for each attendee and giveaways from some of my favorite baby shops.  Opportunity to secure a personal home/hospital consultation after the class.  Class size is limited and kept small to allow for questions.  Upcoming dates are 10/24, 11/5, and 11/14.  This class can be taken anytime after 12 weeks in pregnancy.  This gives opportunity to go over notes many times and take the other 2 courses (Intermediate Breastfeeding and Pumping and Storing Breastmilk).  If you are interested in having a live group class taught in your state/area, please email us!

E-consults

Sometimes its tough to get immediate breastfeeding assistance when you hit a snag! An e-consult is an easy, convenient, and informative way to get the answers you need – now! These 25-minute sessions can be done through email, phone, or Secure Video. Secure Video is a HIPAA compliant video chat. After securing your appointment you’ll receive a link to join our protected, personal consultation.  Appointment times are listed here.  Email me for urgent appointments – lindsey@lactationlink.com

In-person home/hospital visits

Many clients feel reassured by having me plan to be at their place of delivery shortly after baby arrives to ensure a proper latch, provide hands-on support, and answer questions. I also provide home visits before or after baby is born for a variety of reasons. Some clients prefer a private breastfeeding class in their home. Others have taken my Breastfeeding Basics class and need more specific information for: multiples, inverted nipples, previous breastfeeding issues, etc. Some clients have me come to their home after delivery when they run into problems with latch, slow weight gain, milk supply, etc.  Clients who have taken my classes have priority for the limited personal consultation appointments. These appointments are reserved via email – contact lindsey@lactationlink.com to arrange.  I am based out of Highland, UT, and generally serve Utah and Salt Lake counties. Contact for appts outside those areas.

Hope this helps and you find these services a valuable resource.  My goal is to get research-based information to as many women as possible.  As a RN and IBCLC-lactation specialist, I love to educate women on their options so they can guide their experience and reach their goals.  I believe that “Mama Knows Best”, I’m just here to support and help!  Make sure you come say hi on instagram today and download my free PDF – “Top Ten Tips for Breastfeeding Success” link available in my bio.  I also love to see class reviews posted on your own page with the hashtag #lactationlink and tagging me @lactationlink so I can see them!
