Lactation Consults

Hi, my name is Jess Willis, and I’m an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant providing clinical, professional lactation support in the comfort of your own home.  

Lactation consults are performed wherever you’re most comfortable – living room, bedroom, sunroom, nursery, garden (and in your pajamas if you like!) I offer Home Visits, Office Visits, and Virtual Visits using secure video technology.

I’m here to provide infant feeding support no matter how you feed your baby. I am an inclusive provider dedicated to improving equity in the birth, infant feeding, and new parent spaces. Exclusively pumping and need some help with sizing/efficiency? Interested in inducing lactation but not sure where to start or which path is right for you? I’m happy to support you and your baby. 

 

As an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), I can assist with:

 

  • Low Supply
  • Slow Weight Gain
  • Tongue/Lip Ties or Tethered Oral Tissues
  • Painful Breastfeeding
  • Nipple Damage
  • Gassy/Fussy Babies
  • Postpartum Mood Disorders
  • Oversupply or Overactive Letdown
  • Pumping 
  • Returning to Work

Now accepting some insurance plans!

 

If you would like your lactation consult to be covered at NO upfront cost to you, you must submit for preapproval first through Lactation Network. If approved, you can book up to three lactation consults at NO cost to you! Remember to book your consult here through my website to reserve your appointment. Currently included plans networking with Lactation Network include BCBS PPO, United PPO, and Cigna PPO.

Cash & cards (including HSA) accepted for self pay clients. I can provide a superbill for you to file for reimbursement with your insurance. Lactation support is covered under most insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act.

 

For more information on getting your lactation care covered under your insurance, visit my Resources page.

 

 

Please note that due to COVID-19, I require that all adults in the room during the consult wear a mask covering their mouth and nose.

Other children and any adults who cannot wear a mask will need to remain outside the room during the consult. If you do not have a mask, I can provide one for you. This precaution is for my safety and yours. If this is not suitable for your family at this time, I encourage you to book a virtual visit instead. 

I follow all current CDC guidelines for healthcare providers. I wear a K-95 mask with every consult, sanitize equipment before and after each visit, screen all clients for risks of infection and reschedule if risk factors are present.
