Online Lactation Consultant Services is that really a thing? Yes it is! Oh how I wish that I could go back in time. The internet has made being a mom a much easier job! Having breastfeeding support in the convenience of your own home is a huge asset for any new mom. Last summer I used Amwell’s Telehealth Service to meet with a nutritionist and was so pleased with the results. When I heard about this new Online Lactation Consultant Services I just had to share this service for new moms. I think you will love it! You can try the service yourself with the discount codes provided in this post.

Online Lactation Consultant Services

The Amwell Online Lactation Consultant Services is available to new moms anytime or anywhere they can login online. Now that technology is so readily available it only makes sense that you can obtain lactation consultant services right in the comfort of your own home. Face it, you just had a baby. You’re tired, stressed and need some grace. Being able to video conference with a board certified lactation consultant that can address your questions and talk you through the good and the bad would be amazing.

As a mom you just can’t wait until the first time you get to meet your newborn baby. You have hopes and dreams for that bundle of joy and you know everything is going to be perfect. But then some things just aren’t perfect. You want to breastfeed your new baby, but you are nervous and unsure of the how and why of it all. Help!

That was me! I was a very young mother. My first son was born when I was just 20 years old. To say I didn’t have a clue what I was doing was an understatement.

I’ve always lived in a rural setting. In the late 80’s I had no internet access or support networks to answer my questions. A nurse tried to show me how to get my son to latch on after birth and a lactation nurse visited my hospital room when my son was already 24 hours old, with a VHS to watch. Questions went unanswered and I pretty much fuddled my way through the whole process. Sore nipples, engorged breasts and the feelings of failure were overwhelming. Having access to an online lactation consultant would have been a lifesaver.
