What can I expect from the Lactation Consultant and the aftercare appointment?
A Lactation Consultant IBCLC is present at the time of the release. After the release, the Lactation Consultant will assist with feeding. She can help with preparing a bottle or latch on to the breast. It’s all about helping mother and child get started again. It is not a lactation consultation.
During the half an hour aftercare appointment you see the Lacation Consultant where more questions can be answered. There usually remains some time to observe feeding at the breast or bottle, but the aftercare appointment is mainly to check the wound healing and to see how the symptoms are developing and where the Tongue Tie Clinic can help you more specifically.
