Portland is rich with breastfeeding resources and as postpartum doulas we seek to work collaboratively with all your healthcare providers so that both moms and babies can receive as much breastfeeding support as needed to achieve success. All of our doulas support breastfeeding and can provide basic instruction for establishing breastfeeding, maintaining milk supply, introducing pumping and bottle feeding, and avoiding common breastfeeding pitfalls.
For more involved breastfeeding needs we also offer lactation specific visits. ABC Owner Kimberly, a board certified lactation consultant, provides the majority of our lactation visits. Generally lasting from one to two hours, these visits can focus on feeding problems and post hospital stay follow-up concerns. We can also help you establish feeding for multiples or problem-solve if you have already visited the clinic but need some extra support. Lactation visits can be in the home, hospital or birth center, and usually require less advanced notice than our postpartum care as the need is often urgent. Price is $100 for singletons and $150 for twins. Follow-up visits are $60 for singletons and $80 for twins. Payments can be made by credit card through our purchase page or by check at the visit.
