Virtual Messenger Support

Are you in need of one-on-one breastfeeding support? Then you’re in the right place!

At The Breastfeeding Mama, we offer virtual messenger support. This is a convenient way to get the breastfeeding resources and support you need from a lactation professional. 

Easy. Helpful. Supportive.

  • Have a basic breastfeeding question?
  • Not sure of the best course of action when it comes to a breastfeeding question?
  • Need some breastfeeding encouragement?

Virtual Breastfeeding Messenger Support is right for you! 

How Much Does This Cost?

This service is $39 a month and includes unlimited messaging support for basic troubleshooting and support – which may include some back and forth photos or videos of issues. If you choose to be billed on a quarterly basis, the price is $125 for four months – or $31.25 a month – billed all at once!

Secure and convenient breastfeeding support – straight from your phone!

This service offers: 

  • Secure and encrypted messaging using the Signal app (available in the App Store and Google Chrome store)
  • Answers to breastfeeding questions
  • Follow up support for different problems
  • Articles, Videos, and Books for further information on different topics.
  • Referrals for full consults (either in person or virtual)

This does not offer: 

  • Full consults
  • Urgent needs (such as a dehydrated baby, low diaper output, extreme pain, etc.)
  • Weight checks
  • Other issues that require in person support
  • 24/7 support – most messages are responded to in 24 hours (a little longer on the weekend), though this can vary. Often you will get a response much more quickly.

This is not meant to be a replacement for a lactation consult. We do our best to offer as much as support as we can, but at times, you may be referred for a virtual consult with Katie.
