A home consultation is very convenient for moms who have just had a baby. Mothers are more comfortable breastfeeding in the safety of their homes and babies tend to respond better to the quiet and usual atmosphere. The purpose of a home visit is to reassure mothers and help them achieve their breastfeeding goals.
