I grant my permission for breastfeeding consultation services to be performed by the staff of the Breastfeeding Lady, LLC. I understand that to learn how the breastfeeding consultant can help me, this consultation may consist of the following: a medical history of my baby and me, a physical assessment which may include touching mother, an assessment of how my baby breastfeeds including an examination of his/her mouth and suck (offering a gloved finger for baby to suck on), the use of breastfeeding aids and equipment, including pre- and post-feed weight to measure milk transfer, accurate to 1/10th of an ounce, helpful hints and other educational information based on my unique situation, to help achieve our breastfeeding goals.
I authorize the IBCLC to release the information gained during the consultation to my primary care physician(s), health care provider, and insurance company (to assist with claim reimbursement).
I understand that all medical care for my baby and me is to be provided by our physician(s) and health care providers.

I have read the privacy practices from the Breastfeeding Lady LLC website. A written copy will be provided on request. I understand and agree that the information in this file will be kept for a period of seven (7) years.
