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
During this consultation 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 based on already established breastfeeding patterns. 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 include a packet of GoldiLacts breastfeeding education handouts covering typical breastfeeding concerns, as well as an extensive list of GoldiLacts Trusted Resources. This resource list will be included in your followup summary which will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your visit with us. Consultations also come with limited 24 hour text/phone support from a GoldiLacts CBS throughout the remainder of your breastfeeding journey.
Postpartum Support Services
At GoldiLacts, we believe in The Village. Our Postpartum Support Specialist can be an essential part of initiating a healthy relationship between the new mother and her newborn baby throughout the first six weeks of the postpartum transition period. Many mothers find they experience unexpected emotions and fears moving into the new role of “Mama Bear” – having a Support Specialist to guide them through these challenges can be crucial to providing the baby with the utmost care. Day and night support shifts are available and each services agreement can be tailored to the individual family’s needs.

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. Lansinoh manual pumps are available for a fee of $25/week.
