Blocked Milk Ducts:
Did you know that blocked milk ducts can be treated with thermal ultrasound by a clinician? There is an evidenced based protocol for this that is highly successful and often can resolve in just one visit. Please do bring a breast pump or your baby along as nursing/pumping will be a part of the process. If you already have symptoms of mastitis—fever, redness, I will not treat it is contra-indicated. This service can be completed both in-home and a superbill can also be provided for rehabilitation services (occupational/physical therapy coverage details); it will not be billed out as a lactation consultant.
Please see the Appointments page for booking; if nothing is available please send me an email with URGENT: Blocked Ducts in the subject line, or contact via telephone.
Please arrive to the appointment knowing that you will need to either feed your baby/babies, or use a pump in between applications of therapeutic ultrasound.
Additionally, I am working on completion of my IBCLC (lactation counselor certification), if you are a prospective/current patient working with a lactation consultant, I would love to shadow (if the appointment timing works out) to add to my clinical hours for that process.
