Types of Consultations

Each consultation includes age appropriate (baby's age) teaching of breastfeeding and infant development in order for the mother to have a better understanding of her baby's cues. Parenting is a learned art. During the consultation both parents will learn skills needed to better understand the importance of physical, physiological and emotional needs of your family.

Telemedicine Video Consultation: Sometimes for specific situations,video consultation is all that is needed.  Nothing can replace a face to face visit, but sometimes a video call is necessary. Please use the "Contact Us" page to request a video call. The Family Collection and the lactation consulting profession have been working at adapting to the social media needs of today's mothers. Attorneys for the International Board of Certified Lactation Consultant's, after consulting with regulators, have concluded that Facebook and Skype are insufficiently encrypted to meet HIPAA privacy requirements.


According to International Board Certified Lactation Consultant's, IBCLC’s, attorneys, Doxy.me has the encryption strength that HIPAA requires. This web based program is seamless as it works like Skype on your computer.  You initiate the request for an online video consultation on the phone or via email. I will follow up by sending you an email with the link to my consultation website. No software is installed on your computer at any time during this process.  What you do need for a video consultation is an updated web browser like: Chrome or Firefox..Doxy.me does not work with Internet Explorer. 


It's easy! After clicking on the link in my email, I receive a notice letting me know that you are ready to proceed with video consultation. Payment for this video consultation is typically made with a credit card at the beginning of the telemedicine session via a payment link that I provide you or if you prefer PayPal.                                                                                                                                                      We use PayPal to accept payments.
