I offer a variety of lactation support services for both prenatal and postnatal clients. If you don’t see what you are looking for here, please feel free to email me and get in touch and we can find a way to meet your needs.
First-time Home or Hospital Visit – ¥8,000 – At our initial consultation, we will begin to address any possible breastfeeding issues and develop a plan to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals. Transportation fee included within the Tokyo’s 23 Wards. If outside central Tokyo, the transportation cost will be additional. This appointment usually lasts around 1.5-2 hours.
Subsequent Visits – ¥5,000 (Same transportation cost rules apply)
Private Prenatal Breastfeeding Preparation Class – ¥10,000 – This class usually lasts around 2 hours and your partner is welcome to attend with you. During this class, we will talk about the basics of breastfeeding, what to expect in the first few days after baby is born, and make a breastfeeding plan so you can achieve your breastfeeding goals. We will also go over how a partner can support you, if applicable. This class is hosted at a location of your choosing. Same transportation cost rules apply.
Prenatal Breastfeeding Preparation Workshop
The next Breastfeeding Preparation Workshop will be held on Friday October 18th from 10AM-12PM and Friday October 25th from 10AM-12PM at Ryozan Park International Preschool in Otsuka.
The workshop includes two classes lasting two hours each. Each class covers different topics surrounding the process of breastfeeding such as: position and latch, what to expect in the first month after birth, common issues, and how you can prepare before birth to give yourself the best chance of breastfeeding successfully, whatever that means to you. We also work together to help you define your own breastfeeding goals and how you will achieve them.
This is an interactive workshop, not a lecture. You will get to discuss topics as much with other pregnant women as with me in order to hear different perspectives.
You will walk away from this workshop with a clear understanding of the basics of breastfeeding and what is normal newborn behavior, as well as a plan for how you will deal with any possible conflicts regarding breastfeeding, from an unexpected birth experience to an unsupportive family.
Fee: ¥4000 per class, paid on the day of the class. If you cannot make one of the classes for whatever reason, you may join the following month to ensure you receive all the content. Max 8 participants.
Prenatal and Postnatal Lactation Counseling Package – ¥10,000 – Save money by booking a package! This package includes one prenatal consultation (60 minutes) where we define your breastfeeding goals and make a plan to help you achieve them once baby has arrived. The second consultation is either at the hospital or your home after birth to address any specific issues or just give you peace of mind that everything is going well. Two visits total. Same transportation rules apply.
As a lactation consultant, my primary goal is to support the community and increase breastfeeding rates among it’s members. For this reason, I offer free email consultations to answer any questions you may have. Please see my Contact page for more information.
Payment Information: I accept payment via cash or bank transfer. All payments must be made prior to or on the day of our scheduled appointment unless otherwise agreed upon. Again, email consultations are free of charge in order to make this service accessible to everyone.
