Interns need a place to practice and hone their skills. In order to do this, we have a low cost lactation clinic during which the interns see clients. The interns run the appointments, while Dr. Hazelbaker supervises.
The sessions involve a thorough history of both the mother and baby, finding out the mother's breastfeeding goals, observing and assessing a feed, examining the mother and baby, making a diagnosis of the problem(s), and making a care plan.
The clinic sessions are one hour long, with follow up scheduled as needed. They cost $45 per hour. The initial appointment is generally 1.5 hours long, and follow-ups are generally 1 hour long. The clinic is every Monday at 9:00, 10:15, and 11:30 am and every Thursday at 1:30, 2:45, and 4:00 pm. Call the office to schedule at (614) 326-3504.
