Services, Fees & Insurance
"A baby nursing at a mother's breast...is an undeniable affirmation of our rootedness in nature."
During a lactation consultation, you’re not just learning science and rules. You’re getting a holistic approach that takes your entire situation into account. Not only will you get help with any breastfeeding challenges you may be facing, you’ll also get support to make breastfeeding work for your specific situation. Every family is different—learn how breastfeeding can work for you.
Insurance & Discounts
We partner with Lactation Network to obtain insurance coverage for lactation services. If you have an Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana or United insurance plan, your lactation consult may be covered at no out of pocket cost to you! Simply visit Lactation Network and complete their brief, online form–they’ll handle the paperwork and bill your insurance directly.
The Affordable Care Act stipulates that most insurance plans are required to reimburse you for your out-of-pocket expenses for breastfeeding support. If you don’t qualify for upfront coverage, I’ll provide you with the documentation that you need to submit for reimbursement. I highly recommend the resources in the National Women’s Law Center Toolkit, available for download here.
***Sliding scale discounts are available for need-based requests. Automatic discounts are available for Medicaid and WIC clients. Please contact us for more information.***
