I'M NERVOUS ABOUT NURSING FOR THE FIRST TIME, WHERE DO I START?

It is so helpful to start with a Prenatal Consult, where you can establish a relationship with a lactation consultant, address your fears, worries and medical history. Then when you have a baby in your arms lactation support is just a click away!


The Lactation 101 Class also can give you loads of information to help you feel prepared before you baby arrives. Then when you have a baby in your arms lactation support is just a click away!

WHY ARE THE APPOINTMENTS SO LONG?

Well... mostly because they revolve around a nursing baby, and babies work at their own pace! Also, your appointment is not rushed, we spend as much time as we need to get a thorough history, really listen to your concerns and obstacles and work together to find a realistic solution.

WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES DURING COVID-19?

I am considered an essential service being part of the healthcare industry and continue to provide in-person visits, fully masked, taking special care to sanitize equipment and furniture between visits. I also provide virtual visits!

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve officially partnered with LactationNetwork.com! This is an incredible organization that helps families get the lactation support they deserve, covered by their insurance.

The Lactation Network guarantees every mother three 90-minute, in-home lactation consultations with a registered IBCLC, like me, at no out of pocket cost.

 

They handle the paperwork and bill your insurance directly.

To learn more and schedule a consultation with me, visit ​www.lactationnetwork.com​ and use my name as the IBCLC who referred you.
