Breastfeeding visits are scheduled typically for 60 minutes. This allows for opportunities to determine the needs of both mom and baby. We will observe feeding, weigh your baby (both prior to and after the feeding), as well as assist in developing a family centered breastfeeding plan.
To make an appointment you can call any of our office locations and our services are provided in either the Mason or Lebanon office. Our goal is to see you within 24 hours.
