General Breastfeeding Evaluation

We offer individualized and personal evaluations that help you define and reach your breastfeeding goals.  Dr. Glick will spend time with you and your baby, watching you breastfeed, check the latch, milk supply and transfer.  She will answer your questions and help you navigate the barriers and pitfalls of your breastfeeding journey.  She can offer you tips that apply specifically to what you and your baby are experiencing.

Tongue Tie and Lip Tie Evaluation, Management and Treatment

Dr. Glick is expert in the evaluation of tongue and lip ties.  There’s lots of information and misinformation out there that she will help you decipher.  Not all ties need clipping and she will help you decide what is best for you and your baby.

The evaluation and frenotomy can usually be accomplished in one visit of about 1 hour.  Follow up latch work and breastfeeding evaluation are also available.

Milk Supply

Most women experience anxiety over supply, whether there is little or plenty of milk.  Dr. Glick works with patients to establish a plentiful supply and to gain confidence in their own breastfeeding abilities.  She emphasizes self-efficacy as a goal for each breastfeeding pair and will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses.  She works with many mothers whose babies are struggling to keep up their weight gain to the desired growth curves and can help you work effectively with your pediatrician.

Dr. Glick will help you decide on what supplements and galactagogues will work best for you to support your supply.

Pumping and Returning to Work

In our society we expect to return to work quickly and to be able to continue to breastfeed, despite high demands on our time and energy.  Pumping can be an effective tool to help accomplish these goals and Dr. Glick works with you to make your pumping as efficient and effective as possible.  She prescribes pumps if necessary to help with insurance reimbursement.
