Find out more about the benefits breastfeeding can have for you and your baby!

At Lactation Consultants of Atlanta, we treat you like family. Our goal is to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals. Because breastfeeding is a learned art, some mothers and babies may experience difficulties that sometimes require the knowledge and skills of an experienced professional.

We offer thorough personal consultations that can take place in the home, office, virtually by video, and tele-health. The first consultation usually lasts up to two hours.

 

 

Your breastfeeding consultation will include:

-A complete prenatal, birth and feeding history.

-An Assessment of the breast that includes milk expression, appearance of the mother and her breast     before and after feeding, and any other pertinent issues.

-Observation of the feeding in which the consultant watches the baby for pre-feeding behaviors,   response to the feeding, assessment of the latch, and ability to transfer milk.

-A pre- and post-feeding weight will be taken to measure the volume of the intake at the breast. (Home   or Office only)

-Help with positioning.

-If needed an oral assessment of baby’s mouth to check for any pertinent issues. (Home or office only)

-If you are pumping, we will help with pumping techniques, pumping schedules, and checking that     flanges are the correct fit and your pump is in good working order.

-Answer any questions that the breastfeeding family may have.

-A written care plan will be developed by the consultant with the breastfeeding families’ input to help   reach breastfeeding goals and resolve any issues.

-Documentation of the visit including a summary of the care plan will be provided to the family and   shared with the families’ other health-care providers.

Breastfeeding Classes

 

WE are open during this time:

Many families have reached out concerning breastfeeding during this emergency. This is what were doing to protect our patients at this time:
We are now offering phone and video consultations, all classes have moved to a virtual format.
We are continuing to offer office and home consultations for those that would like.
If you schedule an office appointment, we are taking extra measures by staggering our patients to have only one breastfeeding family in the office at a time. We ask that you wash your hands when entering the office. We are using the time between patients to maintain and clean a sanitary environment for our families. Each family will be screened at the door with temperature checks, and all staff are being screened at the door.
If you schedule a home appointment , we are taking extra precautions when entering a patient’s home. Our consultants will wear a mask at all time when interacting with patients and their families, gloves will be worn when appropriate, and hands will be washed frequently. We ask that you limit your support person to one and we will screen your temperatures when entering the home.

The ladies here are wonderful! They are so patient, they never rush me, and I always feel heard and understood. There is no shame or embarrassment here - they have seen and heard it all I guess! Even though I had no issues nursing my first child, my second child brought many challenges. When my daughter was 2 months old, I had issues with getting her to nurse (she had stopped gaining weight), and I ended up with a terrible case of mastitis. Heather was amazing at helping us get back on track. Weekly classes and free weight checks gave me so much knowledge and peace, and most importantly, restored health to my baby. Thanks to her, I'm still nursing at the 1 year mark! I also had surgery recently, and Jana helped me understand how my medications would affect my baby and worked out a nursing schedule that allowed me to continue breastfeeding safely. This clinic is a lifesaver - I highly recommend them!

I reached out to Lactation Consultants of Atlanta recently when I was experiencing a decrease in my milk supply. I had Initially searched the internet for solutions but nothing had worked out for me. I also found that a lot of the advice online was conflicting and confusing. I made an appointment for an hour-long video consultation with Jean, who I had a great experience with. She eased my worries straight away and talked me through the reasons why my supply might have dipped. She gave me a 5 day plan to try and told me to reach back out if there were no changes within 5 days. Well, after 3 days I noticed my supply had increased by quite a lot! I was extremely relieved and happy that all it took was a quick call and a little time on my pump to get my supply up. No herbal supplements or power pumping sessions or anything else suggested online. Now I know Lactation Consultants of Atlanta is only a phone call away, I won’t hesitate to reach out to them for any other breastfeeding related questions in the future!

After 5 weeks of excruciatingly painful breastfeeding, a dentist appointment for ties, and a not so wonderful appointment with another IBCLC... we finally found Sharon. She is amazing! She took the time to make sure she didn’t miss anything. She had wonderful communication, she was very thorough, and oh so very helpful. I love that they have a “goals” worksheet that can help you stay accountable and a worksheet that describes exactly what we talked about in our appointment.. because let’s face it, I have mom brain bad. And then they send all of this info to our healthcare providers (if we wish) which is wonderful. She contacted my obgyn immediately and informed them of the thrush Which made it very easy for me to call and get a a prescription sent over to my pharmacy. Sharon actually CARES about her clients and care to find solutions for our issues which is very different than my first experience with another company. Im so thankful for you Sharon!

As I write this, my older daughter just looked at the baby nursing and said “Wow! She’s nursing really well!” She is! And I thought I wouldn’t be able to nurse her at all. I showed up on the doorstep of Laction Consultants of Atlanta to meet Heather in the height of COVID. My daugher had been born five days earlier and my milk still hadn’t come in. Heather was patient and kind and calm. She deduced what none of my doctors would or could tell me, that a medication I was taking was inhibiting my milk production. Over the course of five visits in person and on videochat, Heather walked me and my husband through paced bottle feeding, supplemental feeding at the breast, pumping and processing the emotions of everything. At three weeks, my milk came in. Now, at two months, I have a store of milk in the freezer and am pumping to replenish what she eats while I’m back at work as an essential worker. When we’re together, she mostly nurses and after all that, she is close to getting exclusively breast milk. Heather is, hands down, a miracle worker. I’m not sure I’ve ever been prouder or more grateful. Thank you!!

I had a very positive experience with Lactation Consultants of Atlanta. Their office coordinator was very personable and patient with me, and made sure I had all of my questions answered before I even made my appointment. I was entering my third trimester when the global pandemic hit and they accommodated my lactation consultation and birthing class virtually. Heather and Kiana were very friendly and knowledgeable which gave me the confidence to follow my birth plan and breastfeed my baby. I will certainly be using their services again in the future!

Heather of Lactation Consultants of Atlanta was so helpful with all of my many questions around breastmilk and pumping when starting back at work! The video consultation was perfect for me during the time of social distancing. Very grateful and would highly recommend!
