Home visit: This visit is available for those who would prefer for me to come and see them or who feel unable to attend the clinic. Home visit rate is €180. Additional costs may apply for visits beyond Cork city.
Phone Consultation: If you wish to discuss a breastfeeding issue at length that doesn’t require a visit to me or you live too far away to come and see me, I am available for a consultation by phone. Ring me or email to book a phone consultation. Cost for a phone consultation is €60.
What breastfeeding issues or problems can you help with?
As each mother and baby pair are unique all breastfeeding problems vary, I assess you and your baby and then help you resolve your particular issue. I am then available by phone for follow up calls as needed. It is important to note that most breastfeeding issues can be resolved.
Some of the breastfeeding issues I can help you with:
What happens at the breastfeeding consultation?
“If you want to breastfeed, I am here to help”
What is the difference between the initial consultation and the follow up visit?
As every mother and baby pair are unique the initial consultation allows me to get a full picture of your individual issues and needs. I can then provide comprehensive recommendations and plan of care.
The follow up visit is only needed to address any outstanding issues that you may still be having. Most women only need an initial visit as most of the follow up can be done with a phone call or two. However, if you would prefer to have a follow up visit then just ring me to make the appointment.
What if I need to see you urgently?
If breastfeeding issues are urgent and need to be dealt with promptly. Please feel free to ring me anytime and leave a detailed message and I will get back to you as soon as I can (usually within a few hours). We can then arrange for you to be seen either in the clinic or as a home visit depending on what is deemed best.
I am interested in a phone consultation, how do I know that my issue is appropriate for a phone consultation?
You can give me a ring and we can discuss which option is best for you, a visit or phone consultation. If the issue is such that I think I need to see you and your baby in order to best help you I will advise you accordingly.
