What We
Offer

01

Prenatal Classes

We offer at least one group prenatal class each month and have private options available as well. In this 2-3 hour class, we explore the early days of feeding your baby, latching, pumping, bottle feeding, mental health, resources, and more. Recommended to take around 36 weeks gestation. 

03

Office Consults

Office consults give us more availability without the travel time, and we may be able to see you sooner! This is also a great option if you are going to be in town or need to utilize the "pay what you can" services. We do try to keep it comfy and welcoming as well!

05

Pumping and Bottle Feeding

Not every family wants or is able to feed directly at the breast. We can help you with selecting a pump, flange sizing, schedules, bottles, and more!

07

Classes

We offer a variety of classes at The Foxhole for lactation and if you have insurance coverage, they will cover classes as well! Examples include: Prenatal Classes, Breastfeeding Nutrition (with Foods of the Spirit), Back to Work Pumping, Milk to Meals: Starting Solids. We also offer several support groups!

02

In-home Consults

We serve a large area of the Upper Cumberland to provide consults in the comfort of your home. We bring a scale and our supplies - you stay in your pajamas! We get to practice in your chair, bed, and comfort space. Plus you do not have to get a new baby out!

04

Virtual Consults

Virtual is a great option if you live in an area without lactation support, sickness in the house, just need a quick check up, or have a difficult work schedule. We use our compliant and secure portal. We can do most things virtually that we can in person!

06

Tongue, Lip, & Cheek Ties

Connor is TOTs Specialty Trained and can assist with pre-release, healing, suck training ,referrals, and more to help you navigate ties.
