I’m super excited to share a service that will come in handy for all MOMS! Are you a new mom who has 101 questions about breastfeeding? I know I did! Or are you a mom who is struggling with breastfeeding this time around. I didn’t get the whole breastfeeding down until my last child, and that was only because of experience. Now if I would have some help, my first two kids might have been a bit easier to breastfeed. Yes, I could have gone into the Doctor’s office, but I just wanted to be home with my newborn, so I winged it. Well, with Amwell you can talk to a Lactation Consultant right from your phone or computer in the luxury of your own home.

HOW AMWELL WORKS:
If you have a smartphone or computer, then you are good to go! Super easy to set up plus it doesn’t take a week to make an appointment. You can pick your time and doctor you wish to see.
It was so easy to set up the appointment too, took about 5 minutes to register and pick out my appointment with the Lactation Consultant- Sarah Johnson.
More About Amwell’s Lactation Services:
Lactation video consults allow new mothers to ask questions, address concerns, or get advice concerning breastfeeding and everything that comes along with feeding their newborn. We all need this service the first month of breastfeeding! The lactation services are provided by a network of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs). They can provide help on some issues such as latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply, pumping or going back to work or school as well as much more.
Why should a new mom use Amwell lactation services?
- Not every hospital has Lactation consultants
- Every new mom has so many questions when it comes to breastfeeding
- Being able to do a video talk allows the consultants to assist with latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply or going back work
My Lactation Consultant- Sarah Johnson was so sweet and gave me so many tips on how to latch the baby, diet to help with milk flow, and how to keep up the milk supply when going back to work. Amazing appointment and I received a lot answered questions.
