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, and that other children please 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 and will also wear a mask to your consult, sanitize equipment before and after each visit, screen all clients for risks of infection and reschedule if risk factors are present. 

 

 

Lactation Consults

Lactation consults are done in the comfort of your own home – living room, bedroom, sunroom, nursery; wherever you feel most comfortable (and in your pajamas if you like!) or in my Office at Jacksonville Community Midwives in Orange Park. I offer Home Visits, Office Visits, and Virtual Visits using secure video technology.

As an IBCLC, 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
  • Flange Sizing
  • Weaning
  • Parent and Infant Sleep
  • Babywearing
  • Herbs for Lactation
  • Medications and Lactation
  • Adjusting to Life with a New Baby
  • Tandem Breastfeeding
  • Preparing to Breastfeed

I am now accepting some insurance plans! BCBS PPO, United PPO, and Cigna PPO are most likely to be accepted at this time, but other plans may be accepted as well. 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. 

I also accept payment with cash, checks, cards (including HSA) at the time of the consult if your insurance is not approved, and provide a superbill for you to file for reimbursement with your insurance. Lactation consults are 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.
