Lactation Consults

  • We have local resources for private lactation consultants in the community that will come and do a home visit.  Please call your baby’s physician to get a referral.
  • Scripps Encinitas and Scripps Memorial La Jolla have outpatient lactation services.  Click here for their website.
    • Scripps Encinitas: Call (760) 633-7850 for information about their outpatient lactation services and weekly free support group.
    • Scripps Memorial La Jolla: Call (858) 626-4444 for information about their lactation services and weekly free support group.
  • Dr. Christine Wood and Dr. Julie Snyder Block are also certified lactation educators.  However, if you are making an appointment to see them about breastfeeding problems, please let the scheduler know this as this is booked differently with more time for a lactation consult.
  • Do not feed the baby at least 1 ½ hours before the appointment.
