During Breastfeeding Medicine Clinic assessments, mothers and babies are registered and seen together as patients in order to best help families create a comprehensive plan that meets the needs of all involved.  The baby must be seen by their primary physician after birth and before coming in for an appointment.

Outpatient consultation typically includes evaluation and treatment of:

  • Latch difficulties
  • Management of low milk supply and oversupply
  • Better positioning to manage sore nipples, blocked ducts, engorgement
  • Breastfeeding assistance for premature babies, multiple gestation (twins and triplets), and babies with complex medical issues
  • Nutritional management for slow weight gain
  • Nipple or breast infections including mastitis and yeast in the mother
  • Tongue tie and/or lip-tie

The clinic team also works closely with our women’s health colleagues to help mothers with:

  • Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders
  • Breastfeeding challenges following surgery
  • Mastitis
  • Plugged ducts
  • Yeast infections
  • Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
  • Other maternal risk factors
