Mission Statement

Orange County Breastfeeding Consultants prides itself in providing the best care and easiest availablity to our clients. Our mission is to promote the ultimate health and well being for each mother and baby through the benefits of breastfeeding by providing breastfeeding education, support, care and service.

Not all lactation consultants are the same and each consultant will bring a unique perspective and experience from his or her educational and professional background.
 

Lactation consultants associated with Orange County Breastfeeding Consultants have experience as registered nurses and have over fifty years of combined experience caring for mothers and their infants. Our consultants not only have keen assessment skills to detect a potential problem, but they have experience teaching new parents the latest information on infant care practices. This experience helps our clients feel more confident and the early postpartum period go more smoothly. OCBC understands that the more information and support new parents have, the more they can enjoy their baby.

When a family schedules an appointment with OCBC, they can rest assured that they will be seen by a qualified and experienced lactation consultant and they will have access to whatever supplies are needed for their particular need right in the comfort of their own home.  OCBC only carries supplies from the best manufacturers and uses state of the art equipment to provide up to date lactation consulting.
A lactation consulting appointment with OCBC begins with a friendly consultant at your door and continues with a thorough evaluation of mother, infant, and feeding session and ends with education, a plan of care and a follow up appointment as needed.  Any lactation advice given during a consult is based on evidenced based research and practice. Each visit is followed by a complimentary phone call to see how things are going the following week.

Orange County Breastfeeding Consultants prides itself with the knowledge that we provide each client with a lactation consultation based on experience, service and excellence with each client treated as if she is our only client.

From a client

 

"My first baby was a preemie, she didn't have the ability to suck or the energy to breast feed.  After only 3 weeks of using a hospital grade breast pump my milk dried up.  I felt like a failure and am convinced that my daughter would have had less significant health issues her first year if she was able to have breast milk for longer than a few weeks. When our second baby also came early, he too had a hard time breastfeeding. For the first two months he was either tube fed or bottle fed. I was positive my milk was going to dry up just like last time until I started consulting with Sandy. It was because of Sandy's knowledge,  encouragement, and determination for success that I was not only able to keep my milk via breast pump but I am excited to say that I am now solely breast feeding!  My son and I owe Sandy our deepest gratitude for all of her help, thank you Sandy!"
