Why Richmond (Madison Co.), Kentucky?

Why am I adding a location to see clients in Richmond, KY? Madison County is my home and I see families struggle to reach their lactation goals. It’s such a blessing to be able to expand lactation services in the area I live in!

Fortunately, Lactation Care with Elizabeth cares about families, even those of our consultants and staff. Not only is it more convenient for myself and my family, but it helps bring expert lactation support to families in an area that has previously had next to nothing.

Access to lactation support, particularly to expert IBCLC care, is a big platform for me. An important first step is having a space available to reach those families outside Lexington, to make access to care easier and closer. Having someone in the community easily accessible will help facilitate meeting breastfeeding goals as well as ease some of their burdens.  

Getting help early is so crucial for overall supply, bonding, and goals.  Please don’t wait!  

I will have office hours available in Richmond and Lexington each week.  I can’t wait to help support your family.

Thanks,

Ashley Kester RN, MSN, IBCLC

Covid-19 update

UPDATE: Always wanting to protect the sweet babies, their families, and me, too. So: currently doing all initial visits virtually and follow ups virtually as well UNLESS I need to do an oral exam to assess for referral out, check wounds post frenectomy, or do a weighted feed. For in person visits at The Speech Network, I am completely sanitizing the room, clean cover on the chair and the scale, changing to new scrubs between visits, wearing masks and gloves, cleaning, cleaning, washing hands. I will check your temp and ask all the covid-19 questions, and of course you will wear a mask too (my mom made some if you forget yours!). Right now we are only having one person working at TSN at a time, and I am leaving 45 minutes between clients, so you can come in when you arrive. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns! I am so pleased to be able to see people in person again but want to make sure it is a safe environment!
