Visit The Doctor From Home With Amwell #MOMSLOVEAMWELL

If you haven’t heard of Amwell, let me tell you…this is the future. If you have an ipad, computer, or smart phone, YOU can have a visit with a doctor or health professional from the comfort of your own home.

Amwell is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop. Some general conditions our doctors encounter include: minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills, and chronic condition management. Amwell employs primary care and specialist physicians, as well as licensed behavioral therapists and registered dietitians, to meet patients’ health and wellness needs. Their most recent addition to our platform is lactation consultants. So, if you are a breastfeeding mom and have lactation questions, Amwell has professionals waiting to answer any questions you may have. Amwell doctors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are dedicated to keeping you healthy.

What I love about Amwell is how easy it is to use, how quickly I am connected to a professional and how affordable a visit really is.

I recently made an appointment with the lactation service that Amwell provides. As many of you know, not every hospital offers lactation consultation. What I loved about using Amwell is first of all, I was in my pajamas. I was able to ask my questions right in the comforts of my own home. Secondly, the website is user-friendly and I didn’t have to wait long to speak with a lactation consultant. Not only that, but the lactation consultant was very knowledgeable. All my questions were answered and I felt confident knowing that the change in my breasts after breastfeeding is completely normal.

New mothers have so many questions when it comes to breastfeeding their new babies, however, not every mother is able to see a board-certified lactation consultant to help answer those questions before leaving the hospital . What is amazing is that a video visit allows the consultants to assist with latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply or going back work. Also, this service allows new mothers at any stage to get answers to their questions and issues usually within 24 hours of request.

I also want you all to know that Amwell offers so much more…services like doctor appointments, prescription refill, therapy and more.

About Amwell’s Lactation Services:
Lactation video consults allow new mothers to ask questions, address concerns, or get advice concerning breastfeeding and everything that comes along with feeding their newborn.

See a lactation consultant for common questions and issues associated with breastfeeding. The lactation services are provided by a network of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs). They can provide help on a number of issues such as latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply, pumping or going back to work or school as well as many more.

  • This is a really great idea. Aside from the obvious benefits of being able to see a doctor from home, there’s also those who don’t have easy access to medical assistance due to living in a rural area and this kind of thing could be lifesaving! Love it

  • This is a pretty cool service. I wish I had an on call lactation consultant after having my first daughter.
    I’ll admit it there are times I should go see the doctor but don’t because I don’t want to get more sick… because germs. This flu season they scared us here in the PNW, so much so I think we a lot of us opted out of going to see the doctor.

    And Cassie brings up a great point, those in rural areas could totally benefit.

  • Amwell is a great service because this day and age you don’t want to have to an ER or urgent care center for every ache and pain or illness. I don’t need the lactation specialist but it is a great service for those who need it.

    I’ve never heard of Amwell before. When I got mastitis I went to a health clinic. It’s similar to urgent care but more of a branch of the main hospitals we have here.

  • What a great thing for new mothers to have access too! I love that technology really is catching up on important issues like this.

  • I’ve tried this and loved it! It’s great to not leave the house when you have small kids. It’s too hard to lug them to the doctors sometimes.

  • Amwell sounds like they have some great services! I never knew services like this existed!

  • This is so useful – I have private healthcare in the UK and I can ring them 24/7 and even Skype them too and it’s the best thing ever, makes life so much easier! x

  • What an amazingly convenient way to use modern technology! I bet this is super helpful to the new mom who needs help with lactation issues. So much easier than packing up a new born and driving to an office to wait!

  • Love how technology now has more apss or websites or services that can really help us out! This Amwell does sound like the future – and in such a cool way, especially for moms!

  • I think this is amazing! So many new moms can really benefit from this help. I know so many who gave up because they didn’t have the support or help they needed to continue nursing, even though they wanted to do it.

  • Breastfeeding assistance in your own home would be so much more comfortable than trying to go to a support group when you’re struggling! This looks like a great service for new parents.

  • Never heard about this amwell. This is a great information especially to the new mom.

  • This is awesome – for new momma, who are navigating a new area – like nursing a newborn – it ca be trying. Having a lactation consultant at the press of a button would have been invaluable 15 years ago for me!

  • I’m really impressed with everything I’ve read or heard about Amwell. It sounds like a great tool for parents, especially new moms who need a little extra help with lactation.

  • WOW! What an amazing service. It’s almost like we’ve come full circle and we can have home visits like the olden days 🙂 Thank you so much for posting, I am definitely going to check it out!

  • Isn’t this really nice? I think it’s awesome that there’s a feature like this from Amwell. It’s not always easy for new mothers to be able to breastfeed flawlessly.

    I really like this feature from Amwell. It’s going to help a lot of mothers out. I think this will also help promote breastfeeding since moms can easily get the help that they need.

    This is amazing. I remember how hard it was when I first started nursing my son. All I wanted to do was get help but my hospital didn’t have any options for consultants.

  • I can definitely see this being so helpful for moms. Sometimes it would be nice to just have a doctor you could call if there is a problem.

    I have used Amwell a couple of times and I love it. So convenient and helpful.

  • I have never heard of Amwell, but after reading this post it seems like an awesome resource for new moms. I do remember having a lactation consultant come to my place to help after my first born. It was such a great help, and probably the reason I stuck with breastfeeding. Thanks for sharing.

  • This would have been great after a first baby and emergency C-Sect.. The last thing you want to do is leave the house.

  • This seems awesome! We travel a lot and this sounds like a service we could use. Breastfeeding can cause a lot of strange symptoms and it’s always best to make sure nothing is wrong.

  • That’s good that there’s an option to do this online as not everyone has the time to go to speak to someone in person x

    I just started hearing about this and I think it’s such a good idea! I have three kids and it would help me a lot!

  • I love that this is happening! My daughter is in Chicago, and they have an app for all kinds of wellness type things.

    I wish we had this kind of support before. It’s going to help a lot of breastfeeding moms. We often have concerns when it comes to breastfeeding and it’s good to have support that’s easy to reach.

  • I love this service–it’s convenient and ideal for new moms. Breastfeeding often has a learning curve.

  • I have heard a lot of great things about Amwell. I should be checking them out. They would probably be a great alternative to doctor’s visits, which can be costly and time consuming.

  • Wow never heard of Amwell before. I hope they have this available in all areas of the country.

  • We tried amwell last year!!!! It was so convenient. If my daughter ever gets sick again, I will use amwell again in a heart beat!
