How can I schedule a visit with a lactation consultant?
A Lactation Consultation at home: Lactation visits at your home can be done throughout the week. If you are interested in a lactation visit at your home, please write an email via the 'Contact Me' portal of this website, note your location, and any details which you are concerned about. You will be contacted back by a lactation consultant within 24 hours. If you are interested in a home visit, an email with detailed insurance coverage information will be sent to you, as well as appointment times to choose from, and new family paperwork. Home visits are billed according to the mother's insurance coverage.
Lactation visits at the pediatric office: Some pediatricians will allow you to see a lactation consultant in the pediatric office. When you see a lactation consultant at the pediatric office, it is likely the visit will be billed through the pediatrician, under your baby's insurance coverage.
Visits through a pediatricians office are one hour long, and they are offered in coordination with your pediatrician.
Virtual Lactation visits: Sometimes, we can get you the same wonderful lactation services through a virtual visit. Virtual visits can be done in 30 min. increments. These visits are used for minor feeding changes, or minor concerns, but only if your baby is gaining weight well. If your baby has any weight gain concerns, then in person visits are recommended to ensure the family is able to get a record of the baby's weight gain.
