A prenatal consult is a great first step toward breastfeeding! You will receive a personal in-home consultation that includes a physical assessment, development of a personalized breastfeeding care plan for the first hour after baby’s birth through the first few months of baby’s life. We will provide you with a preparatory breastfeeding package of information, including email follow-up and support.
In-Home Lactation Consultation
A postpartum consult is our most popular way to help support the breastfeeding parent. Once baby arrives, we will perform an in-home evaluation of the breastfeeding relationship. During this consult, we will also work to resolve any issues that may have arisen. You will receive a personal care plan based on your unique breastfeeding situation. We hope to instill confidence and create a breastfeeding experience that helps you reach your breastfeeding goals.
In-Home Follow-Up Consultation
An in-home postpartum follow-up provides continued care beyond the initial lactation consult. This visit continues the support as the family continues working on their breastfeeding relationship and goals. Follow up visits can also include support on a variety of lactation challenges that may arise, such as support with pumping, returning to work, or weaning.
In-Home Adoption and Inducing Lactation Consultation
An inducing lactation consult is perfect for an adoptive parent, surogate parent, a co-nursing parent, or parent wishing to relactate. During this visit we will explore your options for stimulating a milk supply, as well as bonding with baby at breast. You and your lactation consultant will discuss lactation tools you may benefit from and create a careplan tailored to your specific needs and timeline.
Do you have one of the following insurances: United Healthcare, Cigna, or Anthem BCBS? If so, we are working with a collaborative called Lactation Network that may be able to bill your insurance directly so that you have no out of pocket cost to us. Complete this quick online form here to find out: http://www.thelactationnetwork.com/. They will check to see if they can cover your lactation care and let you know within the day.
A progress note will be sent to your pediatrician following initiation of lactation care. Payment is due at the time of service (unless you are approved with Lactation Network). A receipt will be provided with required coding for you to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement depending on your plan’s coverage for these services. Please call your insurance carrier to verify your out-of-network coverage. See FAQ for more information.
