After our pitch today there were 2 people in the audience who had received lactation support from Breastfeeding Success. This is such a rewarding profession. The first was the husband of a mom I worked with 9yrs ago. He still had the picture of the growth chart that I had hand written tracking the progress of their infant’s growth in his phone! The second was a mom who recently delivered at Ascension and then got support at our Parmer clinic. The time that lactation consultants get to spend with families is so short in the grand scheme of things but makes such an impact. Love my job!

Breastfeeding challenges are common, but knowing when to seek help (and from whom!) can make all the difference. 🤱🏼💡 While minor issues can often be addressed by a peer counselor or lactation-trained professional, more complex concerns may require the expertise of an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

Here's when to consider each:

👉🏼 Peer Counselor or Lactation-Trained Professional:
Basic breastfeeding education and support
Initial setup and troubleshooting
Routine breastfeeding concerns
Prenatal education/preparation

👉🏼 IBCLC:
Diagnosing and treating complex breastfeeding issues
Structural problems with baby's mouth or breast/ni**le
Insufficient milk supply or oversupply
Blocked ducts, mastitis, or other complications
Prescription medication advice while breastfeeding
Covered by insurance typically ..along with everything listed under Peer Counselor

Remember, if you or your baby are experiencing severe symptoms or feel very sick, don't hesitate to seek medical attention immediately. While IBCLCs are a vital resource, your health and safety come first. If in doubt, give us a call at Breastfeeding Success 24/7 for guidance and support. 📞 512-808-0237

Breastfeeding journey feeling bumpy?🤱🏽 Whether you're struggling with common breastfeeding challenges, unsure about milk supply, or concerned about baby's nutrition and growth, our IBCLCs are here to support you.

🌟Breastfeeding challenges
Making breastfeeding comfortable for both you and your baby takes practice. Common challenges range from breast or ni**le pain to finding a comfortable feeding position. If you or your baby are feeling any feeding distress, we can help you find solutions.

🌟Milk supply confidence
From providing enough milk to handling an over-abundant flow, many breastfeeding families worry about milk supply. A lactation consultant can give you perspective on your milk supply situation, create a game plan, and help build breastfeeding confidence.

🌟Baby nutrition and growth concerns
Are you, your pediatrician, or someone else in your life concerned about your baby’s weight gain? A lactation consultant can help you assess feeding effectiveness, determine exactly how much your baby is eating, and come up with a personalized care plan. We can even provide referrals to our Specialized Registered Dietitian support as needed.

🌟Breastfeeding optimization
Even if breastfeeding is going well, you may have burning questions or want to learn more about how it all works. A lactation consultant can help you fine-tune your feeding experience and give you caring support to keep going and feel great.

🌟Induced and re-lactation care
Did you know that any human has the potential to lactate? Inducing lactation or re-lactation is achievable with therapeutic support. Ask us about our induced lactation consultations before starting hormone therapy to track your progress and tailor therapy to meet your needs.

🌟Lactation journey care
Breastfeeding needs change with time. A lactation consultant can help you navigate feeding changes as your baby grows. From starting solids to weaning, to building up a milk stash to return-to-work (or whatever else is on your agenda), we can help.

We're here to provide expert advice and support for all your breastfeeding needs. Don't hesitate to reach out - we're just a call away! 💕

Pain is a part of the birthing process, right?

Honestly, it is. But it can be managed.

Whether you intend to get an epidural once you arrive at the hospital or you plan to have an unmedicated birth, you will almost definitely experience some pain for at least a little while. You will likely labor at home, labor in the car, labor while checking in to the hospital, and labor while settling into your space and waiting for labor to progress. But pain is relative, pain has a purpose, pain can be managed, and pain is temporary.

Come explore some non-medical methods for helping you understand and cope with the discomforts of labor and birth so that you can more fully participate in this big event. Learn to be present and powerful while working toward the moment you meet your baby.

You will learn to use techniques such as:
Body positions
Movement
Partner exercises
Breathing
Visualization

Birth plans - are they a must-have or a controversial topic? 🤔 Some swear by them, while others argue they set unrealistic expectations for an unpredictable event like childbirth.

At Breastfeeding Success, we believe they're a valuable tool for informed decision-making and advocating for your preferences during labor. 💪🏼

Here's why:
1️⃣ They empower you to discover your preferences: Birth plans are more than just a checklist. They're an opportunity to explore your vision for childbirth, considering your health, values, and past experiences.
2️⃣ They facilitate communication with your care provider: Take your birth plan to prenatal appointments to discuss it with your provider. It opens up a dialogue and ensures everyone is on the same page.
3️⃣ They promote family-centered care: Your preferences matter, and a birth plan ensures your wishes are at the forefront of decision-making, alongside guidance from your care team.
4️⃣ They can enhance breastfeeding success: Birth practices can impact breastfeeding, so incorporating breastfeeding-friendly strategies into your plan can set you up for success from the start.

🤰 Wondering what contractions feel like? Here's the scoop! 🤔

It might not feel like what you expect! It's true that labor contractions often start as pain or pressure in your back or pelvis, then move to the front of your lower abdomen. You'll probably notice your belly tightening and feeling very hard as labor progresses.

BUT, it might also feel like menstrual cramps, or an urge to p**p! Some people feel it all in the lower back. What is most important to recognize is that whatever you are feeling, real labor contractions will gradually intensify and become more regular, coming at consistent intervals and getting closer together over time.

Here are four simple but thoughtful ways to support a breastfeeding parent! 💕

Bring snacks: A breastfeeding parent often needs extra nourishment throughout the day. Consider bringing over some healthy snacks or meals to keep them fueled.

Go for a walk with them and baby: Getting some fresh air and gentle exercise can be refreshing for both the parent and baby. Offer to accompany them on a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood.

Pick some small household chores: Little tasks like washing dishes, folding laundry, taking out the trash, or tidying up can make a big difference for a tired family. Offering to lend a hand with these chores can help lighten their load.

Provide emotional support: Sometimes, all we need is someone to listen and offer encouragement. Be there to provide a listening ear, offer words of support, and remind them that they're doing a great job. 💖

🤱 Planning to exclusively breastfeed? Here are some tips to help you get off to a great start! 💕

1️⃣ Educate yourself: Take a breastfeeding class, and join support groups to learn the basics and build confidence.
2️⃣ Birth plan: Include intentions for skin-to-skin contact and delaying procedures.
3️⃣ Skin-to-skin: Embrace immediate skin-to-skin after birth for successful breastfeeding initiation. Keeping baby close helps trigger those innate feeding reflexes babies have.
4️⃣ Postpone procedures: Prioritize bonding and breastfeeding by delaying non-urgent assessments. Anything that needs to done can be done on your body or skin to skin.
5️⃣ Watch for hunger cues: Within the first hour, look for signs of hunger to initiate breastfeeding.
6️⃣ Feed on demand: Feed as often as they want to, or at least every 2-3h in the newborn period. If they want to nurse more than that, let them!
7️⃣ Continued closeness: Keep your baby close to recognize hunger cues and establish a stable milk supply.

Breastfeeding isn't always easy, but with preparation and support from lactation professionals, you can navigate the journey more smoothly! 💪💖 Follow us for more lactation support tips!

We are proud to have two lactation clinics in the Austin Area. Our primary location with three clinic rooms and a large classroom space is located just off Stassney Ln between South 1st Ave. and Congress Ave and our additional clinic is locate at Seton Medical Center on the 8th floor with one clinic room and a pump rental depot. It is important to us that we are able to provide lactation care to all families regardless of financial ability. Lactation clinic visits are billed at a lower fee and allow us the time to see more families each day.

Breastfeeding Success Lactation Consultants are in-network with Aetna, United, and Seton Health Alliance. This means that all Aetna, United, and Seton Health Alliance patients will have access to our services with no out-of-pocket expense. Being in-network allows us to bill your insurance provider directly. We are still able to serve families using other health insurance providers. For those families there is a fee at the time of service and we will provide a super bill that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement after our visit.
