We are passionate about helping new moms fulfill their desires to breastfeed their babies. One of our doulas, Jessica Bower, is a Certified Lactation Counselor and she provides a variety of services to support breastfeeding families in pregnancy and in the early days and weeks postpartum.
Initial Lactation Consultation
The first visit is a 90-120 minute visit in your home. This visit includes assessments of you, your baby, and a feed. Weight checks occur before and after feeds to know exactly how much your baby eats. All your questions are answered and Jessica works with you to develop a full feeding care plan that works for your family.

Follow-Up Lactation Consultation
Follow-up visits are 60-90 minutes in length and occur after the initial consultation. Follow-up visits are sometimes desired or needed as the baby grows and develops.
Add-On Lactation Consultation for Doula Clients
If Jessica was your birth doula, she will be doing a postpartum visit with you. If you would like to add a lactation consultation in addition to the postpartum visit, you can do that for a discounted cost. This option is available only if Jessica was your birth doula.
Breastfeeding Support Group
Jessica leads breastfeeding support group twice each month. This support group is free and all are welcome. Moms get peer to peer support. You can also weigh your baby. The support group meets at Village Family Chiropractic (717 Graves Street) in Kernersville from 4:30-6:00 on select Mondays:

Live Online Breastfeeding Class
We host a breastfeeding class on Zoom once each month from 6:30-8:30pm. This class is excellent preparation for the often challenging early days of breastfeeding and beyond. The class should be taken prenatally.

Private Breastfeeding Prenatal
Jessica also offers a private breastfeeding prenatal visit to help you prepare for feeding your baby. This visit can be in-person or online. It can be tailored to your wants and needs. Prenatal visits can include topics such as insufficient milk supply with a prior baby, planning for exclusive pumping, induced lactation, or other topics.
Price: $75 (virtual) or $150 (in-person)

More to Know
Payment is due at the time of service and Jessica will provide you with a coded receipt that you can provide to your insurance company asking for reimbursement; however, reimbursement is not guaranteed as in-home lactation may be considered out of network. To schedule a lactation consultation, contact Jessica by texting her at 336-707-3842 or email her at email@example.com. All attempts are made to do the visit within 24-48 hours. If you are in urgent need of advice, Jessica can come up with a feeding plan with you over the phone until she can see you in-person. Jessica does visits in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, and some surrounding areas.
Jessica's gentle approach meets you where you are and helps you and your baby have the best experience with breastfeeding and bonding as possible. Jessica is a Certified Lactation Counselor and her undergraduate degree is in psychology and counseling and her graduate degree is in education. Her passion is to calmly care for, listen to, and educate the family in the comfort of their home.
