Preparation for breastfeeding - during pregnancy
Time to talk about breastfeeding your baby. Explore your feelings and expectations about breastfeeding and managing the early postnatal period so that you are more likely to have a satisfying experience and know how to access help, generally lasting 1 - 1½ hours.
Initial consultation visit with your baby
This will involve a detailed discussion of your breastfeeding history, assessment of your present situation, suggestion of options and formation of an agreed plan to suit your individual needs, generally lasting 1 - 1½ hours.
Initial consultation plus tongue-tie division (Frenulotomy)
This will involve taking a medical, obstetric and breastfeeding history and assessing your baby's tongue-tie. You will be fully informed about the procedure, the benefits and the potential risks. If you consent then your baby's tongue-tie will be divided and breastfeeding support will be given afterwards. If the decision is made not to have the procedure done you will be offered support with other strategies to help resolve your feeding difficulties, generally lasting 1½ to 2 hours.
