What’s a lactation home visit?
This is a great option for parents who fear having their babies around several others at a physician’s office. It’s also a great option for parents of newborns, because we all know how hard it is to get out of the house with a baby. Not to mention parents who have multiple children, as getting out of the house is nearly impossible with more than a couple of kids (if you know, you know).
Of course, there are parents who are afraid of what someone else will think of their living space, but I can let you in on a little secret we have: We don’t mind. Most of us have been there. Some of us (like myself) are still there. Having little ones, sometimes pets, while keeping a house ‘guest-ready,’ all while taking care of yourself postpartum feels daunting. You don’t have to do anything special for us. We do ask that you keep your pets in a separate space during the visit, because sometimes they love all that attention from a new person (again, we know, we have them, too). Toddlers and older kids love to help us, and we love it too!
During a home visit, you’re allowing us into the most vulnerable of spaces and times. We are grateful for you and your family for allowing us into your world, regardless of where we visit with you.
