Consults

In the DTC area office: I offer office appointments on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at Elevation Health, 9145 E. Kenyon Ave. #300:

  • Initial Consultations – Complete evaluation of the breastfeeding relationship, including latch and feeding evaluation, oral function exam, breast care instruction, feeding plan, and pumping instruction as needed
  • Follow Up Consultations – Continued care for established clients
  • Weight Check/Mini-Consult – A shorter appointment ideal for established clients who need a step-down from follow ups, or for new clients needing a weight check or to determine whether they need a full consultation  
  • Prenatal Consultations – Ideal for creating a strategy when a prior breastfeeding experience did not meet your goals, when you’ve had prior breast surgery, if your birth or your baby’s health present special challenges, or you simply want personalized instruction for successful breastfeeding initiation
  • Pump Instruction – Personalized instructions with your pump or a rented pump (rent a pump from us!), including flange fitting and troubleshooting (fee does not include rental or additional supplies)
  • Private Breastfeeding Class – Tailored for expectant parents of singletons or multiples
  • Pumping/Back to Work Class – All the deets on how to pump, pump maintenance, and stacking the deck for continuing to breastfeeding after you return to work

In your home: Home consults (Initial, Follow Up, Prenatal, Pump Delivery & Instruction) are available on Fridays, and emergencies can be accommodated on other days (see Emergencies below.) Additional charges apply for multiples, as they need a longer appointment.

Local service area: South Denver metro area from the I-70 corridor (including Northfield) to Centennial and Highlands Ranch, from Aurora to Littleton and Lakewood (east of C-470).

Lactation Emergencies

Sometimes you need to be seen immediately, even if it’s a weekend, after hours, or when no appointments seem to be available.

Examples of lactation emergencies:
– Becoming engorged to the point where you cannot feed or pump
– Your newborn has not fed for many hours (more than 6) and won’t latch
– Anytime you’re having a crisis that you feel cannot wait

If this happens to you, please call me at 720.394.6995 and leave a detailed message if you don’t reach me right away.  I will get back to you as soon as possible.  I may be able to see you the same evening,  I may give you detailed instructions to get you through the night and set up a time to come see you early the next day, or I may be able to refer you to a trusted colleague who can see you right away.
