Tampa Lactation Consultations
In-Office Lactation Consultation:
Consults are individualized and vary to meet the needs of our families. However, all of our lactation consults are thorough and comprehensive and can last 1 to 1.5 hours. At the initial consult your lactation consultant will take a detailed history of the maternal and infant health and complete a physical assessment of mother’s breasts, baby’s oral anatomy, functional assessment, and identify any other feeding barriers. Your lactation consultant will also complete a pre and post weighted feed at every visit. If a follow-up consult is needed we will reassess current progress, complete a new feeding assessment, maternal assessment, weight check, and address any new concerns. We will also update the care plan if needed. As feeding specialists, please keep in mind that our consults are for all moms which include exclusive at breast, pumping and breastfeeding, exclusive pumping, bottle feeding and supplementation, induced lactation, formula feeding and dietary restrictive feedings. (All In-office consults $110.00)

Therapeutic ultrasound for blocked/clogged ducts and recurring mastitis is a non-invasive treatment applied directly to the breast(s). Sound waves created by the machine help to reduce obstruction that surround the ducts which carry the milk, allowing for pressure relief, pain/swelling reduction, and promotes milk flow.
This service requires a referral from one of our IBCLCs, another lactation specialist, PCP, OBGYN, Chiropractor, Physical Therapist, or other qualified providers. ($65.00 ea. session).
Creamatocrit (calories and fat content milk testing):
The creamatocrit is an easy, safe and accurate method for testing breastmilk to measure the calories and fat content in the breastmilk. This may be useful information when evaluating calories for low birth weight babies, preterm babies, and for infants that are not gaining despite appropriate intake of breastmilk. However, the creamatocrit can be for anyone who would like to evaluate their breastmilk to see the calories and fat intake of their baby. ($65.00 per test).
