Email us today to schedule a private consult with an experienced Lactation Consultant!
We require that all of our professionals are both International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) and Registered Nurses (RN) or Nurse Practitioners (NP) with a proven track record of providing effective breastfeeding support in a clinical setting.
IBCLC is the highest designation available to lactation professionals and serves as the gold standard in our field.
Many health and wellness individuals currently refer to themselves as “lactation consultants” but do not have the professional designations or clinical experience to meet the above standards. This does not necessarily mean that they provide sub-standard services — it simply means they do not meet our strict professional requirements.
We also take great care to ensure that all of our certified Lactation Consultants share our practical, non-judgemental philosophy with regards to breastfeeding. Although this qualification is more abstract and nuanced, we consider it to be fundamental to the quality and consistency of our practice.
Depending on your insurance plan or health spending account, some or all of our Lactation Consulting services may be covered (a prescription from your physician may be required).
Please check with your insurance provider. You may also want to look into whether your insurance covers home services by a Registered Nurse (a prescription from your physician may be required).
At this time, we do not offer direct billing. You will need to submit your receipts directly to your insurance provider for claims.
