Breastfeeding Prep 101 (Pre Delivery)
In this session we will go over everything you need to prepare for your breastfeeding journey from what to pack in your hospital bag, the things you need (and what you don’t need) upon your arrival home, and some things that may occur after delivery. You may have questions like “Why is my baby eating so much?” or “How do I know she’s getting enough milk?” or “Why hasn’t she pooped yet?!” We are here to help ease your transition and get you as comfortable as possible with putting your baby to the breast and continued support is always available.
Breastfeeding Prep 101 includes our GoldiLacts Breastfeeding Education and Support Reference packet as well as $25 off your first lactation consultation!
Newborn Lactation Consultation
This session is done at home with Mommy and her newborn. We will cover things like getting the proper latch, how to prevent engorgement and plugged ducts, dealing with overactive letdown, and any other conditions we may recognize or you have questions about. We want you to tell us what areas concern you the most regarding breastfeeding and adjusting to your new family dynamic, no matter how big or small you think they might be. This is a time for you to get all of the stress off your chest and move into a comfortable breastfeeding routine. All lactation consultations come with 24 hour text/phone support from a GoldiLacts CBS throughout the remainder of your breastfeeding journey.
Extended Breastfeeding Support Session
Troubleshoot any issues and concerns you may have with breastfeeding an infant six months or older as well as accompanying issues such as returning to work, developing healthy sleep patterns, and pumping. Other topics for this visit may include introduction to solid foods, sibling adjustment, spousal support, family balance, and stress management. All breastfeeding support sessions come with 24 hour text/phone support from a GoldiLacts CLEC throughout the remainder of your breastfeeding journey.
Mama Bear Bundle
The Mama Bear Bundle is a great way to introduce the idea of breastfeeding to your spouse and other children as well as your birth partner or labor coach in order to establish a healthy breastfeeding routine with your baby immediately upon delivery. We will be with you and your family every step of the way! Lactation consultations must be used within 30 days post delivery.

GoldiLacts has manual and electric breastpumps available for rent for the Mommy who is not yet comfortable with the use of a pump. During this tutorial we will assist with finding the right flange fitting, proper care and sanitization of pump parts, as well as breast care while pumping in order to prevent clogged milk ducts, irritated montgomery glands, and mastitis. We can help the working mom develop a pumping schedule that will allow her to supply her growing infant with the proper nutrients while she is away.
Pump Rental Service
Medela and Spectra electric breast pump rentals are available for $60/week in order to allow mom to become comfortable with the use of a pump before purchase of her own. *The minimum charge for rental will be $60 regardless of how many days the pump is rented in order to cover the cost of a new, packaged tubing system, breast milk storage bags, and delivery. Bottles for feeding are not included and must be purchased separately. Lasinoh manual pumps are available for a fee of $25/week.
