During every private lactation consult your IBCLC will provide an oral evaluation & feeding assessment. Understanding that a visual inspection and a feeding assessment are best practice to help identify any possible areas of concern. Lactation Room collaborates with local preferred providers, should your baby need an oral evaluation by a specialist. We have wonderful working relationships with ENT's, Dentists, Craniosacral Massage Therapists, Chiropractors, Speech Language Pathologists and Feeding Specialists in the DMV area to be able to support your baby's feeding needs.
Lactation Room partners with Dr. Natasha Khurana, owner of Strong Ties. Lactation Room provides on-site lactation support and counseling for each oral evaluation and provides post-op frenectomy care. Our unique partnered approach is all encompassing with the emphasis on all education pre and post release. You will be working with one of our Lactation Room IBCLCs during your evaluation. This collaborative care is not intended to replace a full lactation consult and you are encouraged to work with an IBCLC for a complete feeding assessment, post-op recovery, and breastfeeding/milk production plan.
