Visits


Proper care and attention takes time. My unique individualized approach allows me to give my families the right amount of time together so we can follow the natural flow of your and your baby's rhythm. My goal is to provide personalized, clear and understandable evidence-based information with compassion, balancing physical and emotional considerations for each new family I am honored to work with.

Many parents are referred to me by pediatricians, obstetricians, midwives, doulas or other health care providers. I also enjoy a good partnership with a number of practitioners whom I can refer to for my clients who need assistance beyond lactation consultation.

My practice is primarily focused on providing private, home visits within San Francisco and the Bay Area Peninsula*. As an option, I do have some office hours at DayOne Baby San Francisco I can offer**.

First-time Visit (1.5 – 2 hours) includes:

  • Review of maternal and infant health history, birth and breastfeeding experience to date
  • Physical assessment including mother’s breasts and baby’s oral and structural anatomy
  • Weight check for baby, including pre- and post-feeding weights
  • Observation, assessment and hands-on assistance while feeding
  • A personalized and detailed breastfeeding care plan
  • A report to the mother’s physician and/or baby’s pediatrician, in some cases
  • Two weeks of follow-up care via text, email and/or phone

Follow-up Visits (45 min – 1 hour) may be necessary/desired. These include:

  • Assessment of progress
  • Weight check for baby, including pre- and post-feeding weights
  • Re-evaluation and updating of care plan
  • A report to the mother’s physician and/or baby’s pediatrician, in some cases
  • Two weeks of follow-up care via text, email and/or phone

* Other bay area locations considered – additional travel/time fees may apply.

** Length of visit at DayOne Baby is 1 – 1.25 hours with one week of follow-up care via text, email and/or phone.  Please contact me for more details.

Fees & Logistics


Fees & Logistics


Fees:

When searching for a lactation consultant, the important thing for a new mom to focus on is a personal connection with the person you are inviting in during such an intimate time.

Some moms considering me as a lactation consultant are happy to know that on behalf of the many moms and babies I'm honored to work with, I donate a portion of my fees monthly to organizations supporting women and families.

Payment is due at the time of the visit and I accept cash, checks, PayPal and Square Cash. I can take credit cards at home visits for a small additional fee to cover my cost for the transaction. 

If you’d like to discuss my fees, please contact me at 415.939.7877 or jenn@careinthecurve.com. I welcome the opportunity to chat and share more about myself with you.

Packages:

Multiple-visit packages are available, as well as private, in-home prenatal breastfeeding classes and telephone consultations (for certain situations). Please contact me to discuss your needs.

Insurance: 

If desired, I can provide appropriate documentation to submit along with your own claim form to your insurance company to seek reimbursement. While I cannot guarantee that you will be reimbursed, many of my clients receive partial or full reimbursement. Please check with your health insurance provider for their policy.
