My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Phone Consults

I am open to phone consults. Most of you need something simple resolved or re-assurance.
Some families just need information. I may not be on your insurance or I may be out-of-network. It may be hard for you to get in because you have a large family or live too far.

Drop me an e-mail about your situation, I will let you know if I can help. I can give you a tentative time frame for phone consult or let you know if an office visit is required.

Some common scenarios that I have been phone consulted for recently:

1) No insurance, obvious mastitis (or thrush), needed prescription.
2) Medication Compatibility
3)Established family just moved out of state and suspect there is yeast passing between the two of them.
4)Following up to discuss lab results, that don't require a drive, but more complicated than the nurse should handle.
5)After hours and holidays (if you don't reach me no harm in asking).
6) Adoption/Relactation
7) Implementing a plan leading up to an office visit in the future
8) Information to support your milk supply/co-sleeping or life style.
9) Dyslexia/reading difficulties

If you may need on going e-mail support or E-care, see my E-care link.

It would be helpful to provide name, and date of birth of family members involved. A brief scenario, your phone number, your pharmacy name and number. In the age of technology, let me know if you are needing same day help or if it can wait till the next office day or if your request is for the near future. My priority will be patients in the office. I can take cc numbers over the phone and after hours. Sometimes I find a late evening consult good because there is less distractions.

I will let yet you know if it is more appropriate to make a face-to-face visit.

Phone consults start at $75.00.

If you have an insurance that will allow phone consult, I will let you know.
