Breastfeeding doesn't always come naturally and can be very challenging in the early weeks. A lactation consultant can help you overcome these struggles and guide you on the road to reaching your breastfeeding goals. Some reasons to seek assistance from an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) include (but are not limited to):
*Once you purchase your Lactation Consultation, an email will be sent (within 24 hours) containing forms that will need to be completed and returned prior to the consultation time in order to optimize your time with your lactation consultant. The email will also include options for available times to meet with our IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). Lactation appointments are available on evenings Monday through Friday and all day Saturday & Sunday. For questions, please call 512-765-9959.*
What does IBCLC mean?
The International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) certification is recognized as the Gold Standard for health professionals working with breastfeeding women. IBCLCs have passed a fully accredited examination set by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE). Prerequisites for the board examination include thousands of hours of clinical work and dozens of educational credits in Anatomy & Physiology, Cultural Diversity, Psychology & Counseling, Child Development, and Nutrition. All IBCLCs are required to provide evidence-based lactation support and adhere to the IBLCE’s Professional Standards.
At My Pure Delivery, our IBCLCs are also Registered Nurses with backgrounds in Maternity.
***The Affordable Care Act of 2012 requires coverage of lactation consulting as a “Women’s Preventive Service.” Many health insurance companies reimburse for private lactation consultations. Please contact your insurance provider for specifics on your insurance coverage. My Pure Delivery provides reimbursement forms to submit to your health insurance provider.***
First-Time Visit takes approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. Our experienced Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) will conduct a comprehensive office visit which will include:
A Follow-Up Visit may be necessary or desired. Follow-up visits usually take 45 minutes - 1 hour. Follow-up visits include:
Telephone Lactation Consultation and/or Video Lactation Consultations are available for quick check-ins, going back to work and pump teaching, some simple latch issues, and for general breastfeeding questions.

Preparing For Your Breastfeeding Consultation
Once you have purchased your lactation consultation, you will receive an email with the following forms attached. Please complete these forms and submit them BEFORE YOUR VISIT:
Please have the supplies that you use to feed your baby (ex: breast friend pillow, nipple shield, etc.). If needed, we offer Medela breastfeeding supplies which are available for purchase.
If you are supplementing your baby, please bring enough breast milk or formula for a feeding.
We encourage a support person to attend. Please feel free to bring a list of questions.
Baby should arrive ready to feed for the consultation so please plan accordingly to ensure that a full feeding takes place at your appointment time. This means feeding your baby 1.5 - 2.5 hours before your consultation time.

I am so happy I found My Pure Delivery and sought out Diba's help! She was very accommodating to get me in for an appointment and helped me tremendously with engorgement issues soon after I had my second baby. Can't thank her enough or say enough good things about my experience! I had seen other lactation consultants after my first baby and none compared to the care provided by Diba. The appointment did not feel rushed at all and she took the time to answer my questions in a non-demeaning manner. Like others mentioned, I too appreciated the follow up call. I highly recommend!!

I truly cannot thank Diba enough. She helped get us on the right track for breastfeeding our second baby. She was compassionate, caring, thorough, and so sweet. She spent almost 3 hours with us at our home to help us. I thought I had mastitis, but it was just blocked. She took her time to help us out and explained everything before and during the whole process which helped put us at ease. She helped not only me figure out things, but also took her time with our baby girl to make sure she was latching properly, checked for a tongue tie, weighed her before and after a feeding session, and even gave us some tools to help with the latching problems. Don't ever hesitate to call and ask for help. Breastfeeding is no easy task, but Diba makes it possible. She even called a few days after our session to see how things were going. She's amazing and I can tell she's def doing what she feels passionate about.

My husband and I aren't from Austin, but we were here for a few months right after our baby was born. She was struggling to regain her birth weight, which led us to discover that she had latch issues, transfer issues, and a lazy/weak suck. We found Diba through Google search, and I am so glad that we chose to schedule a consultation with her. She was immediately so kind and open, but also professional and knowledgeable. You can tell that she really loves babies and loves helping and supporting mamas. She helped us through our issues in two visits and two follow up phone calls. I also really appreciated the info she provided for insurance reimbursement. One of my favorite things about her services is the bi-monthly breast feeding support group she leads. It was so great to meet with other women going through similar struggles, hearing their advice and celebrating their successes. It's so invaluable to have that kind of support. Diba was my breastfeeding cheerleader. She listened to me when things were difficult, and celebrated with me when things got better. I would recommend Diba and her services to any mama struggling with breastfeeding issues of any kind.

Anyone planning on breastfeeding should call and setup a one on one consult before they leave the hospital. It is just that helpful. I was lucky to find My Pure Delivery and was very happy with the help they provided me and my daughter. She was not gaining weight and nursing constantly. Diba helped me with her latch and supplementing with SNS. Within just a few weeks her weight was up enough that the pediatrician recommended we stop supplementing. She is a month old and nursing like a pro!

Diba was the only person that really helped me and made me believe I could do this! Everyone at the hospital was really nice but they were not as patient, knowledgeable and clear as she is! Nurses came in and out of my room, I was struggling with breastfeeding and I was just very confused and discouraged as every person had a different approach. Ultimately, they were just not explaining to me, step by step, how to have a good latch and what I was doing wrong. I had cuts on my nipples and one nurse gave me a nipple shield, the other one gave me formula on my last day saying that my baby had lost a lot of weight and I should probably supplement! Of course I didn't need either, I just asked for Diba and after a few visits at the office with her, I was good with the whole process. I am really happy I followed her class before I had the baby, otherwise I would have probably given up as my friends did. Not so many people know that a lactation consultant can solve pretty much any trouble you have! It's definitely worth the money.

During the second trimester of pregnancy my OB and hospital recommended baby classes and I immediately signed up given I will be a first time mom. The classes I signed up for were Newborn Care, Infant CPR and Safety and Breastfeeding Basics, although many others are offered. I registered for them all though My Pure Delivery and they were taught by the NICU Nurse and Lactation Consultant Diba Tillery.
Each class is offered to the public and the class sizes are kept very small. You don't need to bring anything with you. Everything is provided: the hard copy powerpoint, note pages, pens, flyers, folders and even food and drinks! (However, I would recommend bringing a pen and paper for the free hour classes if you'd like to take notes). The classes are loaded with pertinent information and it's easy to ask questions at anytime. Diba is great at creating a laid back atmosphere that's unintimidating. The classes range in price but a form is given out that allows you to submit them to insurance for reimbursement.
As someone who has been around babies my whole life and who has cared for them I was still able to get vital information out of each class I've taken. I highly recommend them even if you're just brushing up on information.
My pure delivery also offers specialized lactation consultations (at home and on location) as well as a free support group that meets a few times a month. This location also has a wide range of products they sell and rent (skin balm, pumps, hospital necessities, nursing pillow, etc etc etc). Basically it's a one stop shop for mommy and me products, lactation help and everything baby! With the experienced and helpful staff you can't go wrong!

i felt so sad that it was being so dificult and i was about to give up , she was so professional and pacient with me and the baby loved the whole process

Not only is Diba so well educated on everything baby- she is such a kind and warm person. from the first day I met her I immediately felt at peace and comfortable. I was in the hospital just a few days after giving birth (4 weeks early)- my milk had come in and I was experiencing really bad engorgement pain. Diba spent an hour in my room helping me through the engorgement and teaching me what to do. A god-send. A few weeks later my husband and I took her infant CPR class- which was a great investment. We feel so much more confident taking care of our little man.
Most recently I had an office consultation with Diba to help with my low production breast feeding. She shared so much compassion and understanding for the struggles I have faced, and took time to make a comprehensive plan that would work for both me and my son. Only a week later and my milk production has doubled!
So grateful to have met Diba that day in the hospital- I highly recommend her to anyone out there who is breastfeeding!

I was having a lot of breastfeeding issues from bad latch, pain and my baby was not gaining enough weight. I called Diba as a "last resort" before going to formula because everything was going wrong for me. She was my saving grace. I finally got my son to latch correctly and she gave so much help. I no longer have to use any formula and even have a good freezer stash of breastmilk. Something I would have never dreamed of. She also even have follow up reports to my son's pediatrician which was above and beyond what I expected. Thank you Diba for all your help. She was worth every penny spent for her consultations.

I saw Diba for lactation services and she was so helpful and sweet. She seems to have a genuine passion for what she does. I wouldn't have been able to nurse for as long as I did without her help. Being a new mom and nursing can both be hard at times so I would definitely encourage all new moms to get support. My Pure Delivery is an awesome source of support and a great addition to the community.
