CONSULTING - HOME VISITS
Trezi is aware that breastfeeding is a learned art, and it is not suppose to hurt when a Mom breastfeeds. If breastfeeding hurts, something is not right. Sometimes the answer could be as simple as re-positioning the baby in the Mom's arms. All concerns need to be assessed and corrected right away by an IBCLC.

CONSULTING - PRENATAL/LACTATION VISIT
Jacksonville, Florida 2016
When Trezi consults, she presents material which is only evidence based, she advises Moms on all aspects of breastfeeding and supports the mother and the baby dyad with a compassionate heart. Trezi not only consults on the trials and tribulations of breastfeeding, she also advises expectant Moms on prenatal nutrition and helps them in minimizing their prenatal symptoms. She also works with the Moms on infant and child nutrition when it is warranted. She also specializes in breastfeeding with Mom's that have flat/inverted nipples.
During the home visit, Trezi will:
-assess the Mother and the infant
-weigh the infant before and after the breastfeeding consult
-demonstrate all six breastfeeding positions
-show how to massage the breast before and during the consult
-illustrate positioning of the infant on to the breast
-communicate how to assess if baby is getting enough milk
-other breastfeeding tidbits
-disclose some responsibilities for Dad
Whether the lactation or breastfeeding training is in a hospital, in an office or classroom setting, Trezi's goal is to reach as many prenatal Moms as possible prior to their delivery. If she is able to reach them and teach them all about the art of breastfeeding, they should not have problems after the delivery.

When it is time for Moms to return to their workplace, it is most important that the Mom's employer supports her decision in breastfeeding and allows her to pump at work. This benefit reduces the absenteeism and turnover rate in the workplace. It also increases the Mom's morale and makes her more loyal to the company. This enhances the company's image of being baby-friendly and saves in retraining new employees. When corporations support breastfeeding, the baby will be healthier because of Mom's milk. In addition, when the babe is healthier the Mom will be at work more.
All Dad's or significant others are encouraged to participate in the training: breastfeeding Moms are most successful when they receive all the support they and their infant deserve. Even Grandparents and girl friends are welcome to attend as well.
Trezi is an expert when it comes to training, as she creates an entertaining and a memorable time for all expectant Moms. She makes sure her training is fun as it has a twist to it which facilitates the learning process.
