We're here for you.
We've fine-tuned our offerings, and are now exclusively focused on expecting and new moms. We offer private breastfeeding classes, in-home and telephone support for new moms, a new moms' group, and Baby Buddhas (the perfect first class to take with your baby).
Three types of help for new moms.
Having a new baby is a life-altering experience for every woman; it can be extra challenging for breastfeeding moms. Stephanie Hinkaty, a certified lactation counselor, offers support in three ways:
- Via one-on-one, in-person appointments in your home. We begin by discussing your pregancy and birth, talk through questions and concerns you may have about you and your baby (about breastfeeding or any aspect of baby care), and when baby is ready, observe a feeding and offer recommendations and gentle guidance. The visit is beneficial for moms having difficulty with nursing and for those who feel things are going well but want to make sure. The initial consultation is $110 for a 90-minute visit, and includes follow-up support via telephone, email, and text as needed. If additional in-person appoinments are requested, they are $50 each. Please call me at 917.209.1573 or send me an email to request an appointment.
- Not sure if an in-home visit is necessary but have questions? I offer 15 minutes of complimentary guidance via telephone. If our discussion continues beyond 15 minutes, I charge $25 per 30 minutes of additional time. (As an example, the fee for a 45-minute conversation would be $25; between 46 and 75 minutes would be $50.) I will send an invoice via email after our conversation ends; however, if you decide during the call that an in-home visit is necessary, there is no fee for the phone call. Again, I can be reached at 917.209.1573 or send me an email to request a telephone appointment.
- Through Newborn Mamas, a new moms' discussion group for moms of newborns up to 12 months old. It is a wonderful way to meet other new moms with similarly-aged children, and to receive breastfeeding support in a group setting.
