Loved that I could get 1:1 prenatal sessions virtually! With the pandemic, I definitely don't want to participate in crowded classes or leave my home as much. This is my first pregnancy so I generally feel a little overwhelmed! Kimberly from Ruth Health was really thorough and helpful.
I got expert help with my pain and incontinence. It took away the fear.
Ruth Health helps you take control of your pregnancy. I got precious hours back in my week!
Fantastic providers, easy access telehealth services. I recommend RH to all my pregnant and postpartum friends.
I loved my lactation consults with Ruth Health. I received expert advice that gave me confidence in my breast-feeding journey. As a new mom, it was awesome to get that kind of counsel without leaving the house.

Meet the care experts at Ruth Health

Yes! You can have an educational session and ask our provider any questions you may haveto get you prepared for your feeding journey. Preparing to breastfeed before baby is born is one of the best things you can do to guarantee your success with breastfeeding. We can help you come up with your postpartum "game plan" to get feeding off to a good start, discuss ways to prepare your home for success breastfeeding and tips/tricks to realistically prepare you and your partner for the demands of breastfeeding.
In many cases, yes. Each baby has different oral anatomy, and each experience of breastfeeding can be different. We recommend at least one “refresher session” with our Virtual Lactation Support clinicians, even for baby number 2, 3, or 4+—and then as needed should issues arise.
If you'd like for the provider to observe a feeding, try to hold off until your session. However, if having a hungry, fussing baby will take away from your ability to maximize our time together, then consider feeding baby beforehand to decrease your own stress and increase your ability to enjoy our session.
No stress! We can make a lot of assessments and gather a lot of information just from you describing how feeding is going. In the world of lactation flexibility is key and we're quite used to babies not being on our schedule.
Yes, we can assess the possibility of a tie based on the information you share with us and hopefully some good camera work (!) to take a look in baby's mouth. Tongue ties should never be assessed on looks alone and a proper assessment of a tongue tie will involve some detailed history taking to piece together all the pieces of the puzzle.
