What to aspect
It's not unusual to feel uncertain after you get home and need some extra support. Having your baby in your arms and figuring out how to manage things once you're home can make you feel unprepared. By coming to you, it helps me assess your unique needs. After your visit, I'll give you a copy of the detailed plan of care we create which outlines what you should be doing, why and for how long. I'll also send a progress report to your baby's doctor. As an RN and IBCLC, I can work with the other members of your healthcare team and if needed, make other appropriate referrals to specialists in San Antonio. Your consult includes two weeks of follow-up care regarding the personalized careplan. Discounted follow-up home visits are available as well.
