Get Just the Advice You Need

If you've got a specific issue that needs attention, our one-time pumping sessions are for you. 

PUMPING 101

01

There are many reasons why moms choose to pump when they're just starting out. Whether you're looking to increase supply, create a freezer stash, exclusively pump, or just want the flexibility of leaving the occasional bottle - this is for you.

 

Here's what you'll get (exact topics will be based on your individual needs):

  • A personalized instruction on how to use your breast pump.

  • A personal flange fitting. The correct flange size can make all the difference when it comes to output and comfort while pumping.

  • Instruction and tips for safe and effective methods of clean your pump parts.

  • Information on safe handling of breast milk and the basics of milk storage.

  • Understanding of how milk supply works so you can use pumping to support your breastfeeding journey.

  • A written care-plan with your personalized strategy to get your pumping journey started successfully

02

EXCLUSIVE PUMPING

No two Exclusive Pumping journeys (and consults!) look the same. Whether your concerns are about decreasing pump sessions, bottle feeding, dealing with supply issues, clogs/mastitis, or weaning - this is for you.

 

Here's what you'll get (exact topics will be based on your individual needs):

  • A personalized strategy to meet YOUR goals. We'll discuss how often and how long to pump (based on your specific situation), make sure you're using the right flange size, and talk about ways to make pumping more comfortable.

  • If you've got an oversupply - a plan for storing and using frozen milk before it expires.

  • If you've got supply concerns - a plan to work on your output to meet your baby's needs (this may include supplementing, donor milk, or different methods to increase supply).

  • No one wants to feel tied to the pump all day long. You'll get an overview of the different techniques and tools available to make pumping easier and less disruptive to your everyday life. We'll then work together to determine the options that best fit your lifestyle. This may include incorporating different types of pumps, methods for 'wall-free' pumping, and/or ways of storing milk on the go.

  • Follow up via email or text for 2 weeks following the session to tweak as necessary.

  • A written care-plan summarizing our conversation and your personalized strategy.

 
 

PUMPING AT WORK
