Get the Expert Help You Need
We understand that help is not always available where you live, or you don't need or want to see someone in person, so we've created several options for you to find the support you need. See the options below to find the solution that best fits your needs.
Are you looking for clear answers to your situation? Perhaps you need personal help, but don't need or want to communicate via video. This type of appointment is great for those with questions about taking medications while breastfeeding, wanting to discuss how much to feed their baby, or how often to pump, returning to work, or anything else that can be answered over the phone.
Initial 1-on-1 appointment
These appointments are available at our private office in the heart of Arcadia in Phoenix. You get the most comprehensive care in our clinic, with hands-on expertise in a compassionate setting. We accept any form of payment including HSA, flex care cards, cash, or check. Jacqueline Kincer, IBCLC accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield and bills all other insurance plans out of network.
At the first visit, we perform a full assessment and medical history of you and your baby pertaining to the birth and breastfeeding. We use a hospital grade scale to weigh your baby before and after a feed to measure intake. We observe a feeding session to assess the mechanics of feeding for any issues. We will work on positioning and latch, use any feeding devices you may need, assess infant reflexes and structure, complete an oral examination of your baby, work on suck training or other therapeutic exercises as needed, address diet and nutrition issues, and go over techniques to manage milk supply and express milk if needed. We will leave you with a written care plan that includes written instructions on breastfeeding, safe sleep, tummy time, baby wearing, therapeutic exercises, infant intake, referrals, etc. In most cases, expect to have 3-6 visits with us in total to fully habilitate breastfeeding.
This is an ideal option for those who are not local to us. You'd be amazed at how much we can assess with just a camera and microphone. This is the best option for learning oral-motor exercises, getting help with latching, increasing milk production, troubleshooting damaged nipples, or getting guidance with pumping or bottle feeding. We use a HIPAA-secure telemedicine platform to protect your privacy.
