Lactation/Chiropractic Visit with Dr. Lee
This initial visit addresses breastfeeding concerns and challenges right in your own home. A health history, examination, and assessment are performed; followed by diagnosis, treatment, and care plan. All visits include a structural chiropractic examination of the jaw, neck and sacrum, as well as myofascial therapy or adjustment if needed (many breastfeeding problems are caused by a structural problem in the infant). An infant scale is available for pre- and post- feeding weight checks to determine milk transfer quantities, and assess weight gain.
Follow-up In-Home Visit
Includes chiropractic treatment if necessary.
* Payments can be made by cash, check, or credit card. A superbill will be provided upon request which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
Why Hire Me?
Not all lactation counselors are created equal and each family has to make the important decision of whom to trust with their breastfeeding concerns. I have personally had both a positive experience with a wonderful lactation worker, and a negative one. If it were not for my education and previous breastfeeding experience, we could have run into some trouble.
Being in private practice allows me to devote as much time as needed to each family, which is a big part of breastfeeding problem solving.
Having been a prenatal/pediatric chiropractic doctor for many years also lends a hand in assessing and correcting mechanical or neurological problems in baby that could be a result of traumatic birth, c-section, or poor womb positioning. This is not typical of other lactation consultants. I also have extensive training in nutrition, and maintain a nutrition certification.
Private practice also means that I do not have to conform to any hospital policies or procedures that can interfere with breastfeeding or the necessary lactation support needed for ensuring an optimal breastfeeding experience.
The bottom line is this: it is my passion to provide the most supurlative care to ensure that you and your baby have the best breastfeeding experience possible. I am dedicated to making sure that every mother and baby experiences the beautiful relationship and synchronicity that develop from bonded breastfeeding.
“What value can you put on a beautiful, relaxed breastfeeding relationship that provides the perfect nutrition, immunity, neurological development, bonding, and a multitude of health benefits for mom too?”
