Frequently asked questions
Do you accept insurance?
I have partnered with The Lactation Network, you can click here to see if your insurance is accepted through them. Otherwise, I am currently working toward becoming in-network with various insurance companies. In the meantime, cash and credit card payments are accepted.
Why should I seek prenatal lactation education?
So much emphasis is placed on pregnancy and birth, and rightfully so. But then what...now you have a baby and they send you home. Learning about lactation and breast/chest feeding prior to delivery can help you start off with some understanding of what to expect. Learning about lactation prenatally does not ensure you won't have any issues, but it will help you to know who to call and when.
Why does this hurt?
There are a number of reasons why breast/chest feeding may hurt. The most common cause of pain is poor positioning. During our visit together we can help you to achieve the most comfortable position for you and your baby. We will also asses if there are other issues present, and work on a plan to address those concerns.
How do I know if I have enough milk for my baby?
The simple answer is...if your baby is gaining weight well and having adequate "output". So many of us want to have something measurable to provide us comfort that we are doing things "right" or have "enough". Sometimes we need to talk through our experience in order to have reassurance that what we are experiencing is within the range of normal. During our visit we will discuss this and any other concerns you may have.
