Breastfeeding is natural, but it doesn't necessarily come naturally. Whether this is your first baby or not, or if your baby is a newborn or older, breastfeeding can come with challenges and frustration. Scheduling a lactation consultation can put your mind at ease while providing you with the support, education and encouragement needed to have a successful breastfeeding journey. 

What to Expect:

  • A consultation by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), the gold standard in breastfeeding knowledge and expertise.

  • A thorough review of both your and your baby's medical history.

  • An assessment of a feeding which includes the latch, positioning and transfer of milk. 

  • A test-weight to determine the amount of milk transferred during a feeding*.

  • Evidence-based education applicable to current breastfeeding issues.

  • An easy-to-understand care plan that addresses all issues, with a goal of resolving any challenges you are experiencing.

  • Follow-up contact via e-mail or text.

  • A consultation report will be faxed to your obstetrician and your baby's pediatrician.

               * Of course, a test-weight is unable to be performed with a virtual consultation. However, ​all other aspects of the    consult are available.

SHOULD my insurance plan cover my lactation consultation?
By law, your insurance plan SHOULD cover your lactation consultation.  The healthcare law requires new insurance plans to cover breastfeeding support, supplies and counseling without cost-sharing. Check with your plan or account provider to understand your options. The National Women's Law Center Breastfeeding Toolkit is an excellent resource. 

** If you are out-of-network, it is suggested that you contact your insurance company prior to booking to obtain prior authorization. While many companies do cover lactation care, we cannot guarantee our services will be covered by your particular insurance carrier.

              

*Your insurance policy is a contract between you and the insurance company. While every effort is made to utilize your benefits, the terms of your plan will prevail and the fees for services rendered are your responsibility.
