Consults

Sweet Life Lactation offers a variety of consult types and locations to meet your needs. All consults can be done in the comfort of your own home. I also offer consults at offices in Carmel Valley and Clairemont.  Here is more information on prepping for your consult. 

Consult requests can be made by phone, 858.215.3744, email, or via my online consult request form

Pre-Natal Consult
Do you have a specific concern that you would like to address before the arrival of your baby? A pre-natal consult will help calm your nerves and allow us to create a personalized plan to get feeding off to a good start.

Some reasons to consider a pre-natal consult are: 
  • Breast reduction or other breast surgery, biopsy or injury
  • Previous breastfeeding difficulty 
  • PCOS 
  • Tongue Tie
  • Hormonal Issues 
  • Inducing Lactaion
  • History of Low Milk Supply 

Please plan on 1-1.5 hours for our appointment.

Fee: $75
In home postpartum follow up visit: $130
Office postpartum follow up visit $100


Post-Partum Consult
Congratulations! Your baby has arrived but breastfeeding is not going as planned.
For your consult, I will join you in the comfort of your home. Your consult will include a weight check and an oral assessment. A care plan will be developed as well as a plan for follow up care if necessary. 

Some reasons to consider a postpartum consult are:
  • Slow weight gain
  • Nipple and/or breast pain
  • Nipple Trauma
  • Latch Issues
  • Tongue Tie
  • Low Milk Supply 

Please plan on 1.5-2 hours for our appointment.

Initial Consult Fee:
In home consult: $165
Office consult: $135

Follow Up Consult Fee:
In home consult: $130
Office consult: $115

Twin Consults
Twin Consults include the same as a postpartum consult. 
Please add an additional $30 for twins. We will schedule 2 back to back consults for twins to allow us to focus on 1 infant per consult. 

Cancellation Policy
I require any cancellations 24 hours in advance. A late cancellation fee of $25 applies to all cancellations less than 24 hours in advance. 

Convenience Fee
An additional convienience fee will apply to addresses beyond 20 miles of office. Please use the following map for office approximation.
