|The initial visit includes taking a detailed history (we will have more time to practice and problem solve if you are able to complete your forms and send them back to me before the visit, click on FORMS to fill them out), a feeding assessment, individualized care plan, resources, and a written report to your health care provider(s) (if you desire), and a super-bill (which is for you to submit to your insurance provider for a possible reimbursement). Initial and follow up visits may include an oral assessment and full body assessment of your baby. Oral assessments will only be done if I need to feel or view the structure and/or function of your baby’s mouth and will always be completed with a gloved finger and preferably after the nursing session when your baby is calm. Pre and post weight feeds may also be completed during the visit.
Initial breastfeeding consults normally last between 1.5 and 2 hours.
Sometimes breastfeeding problems are not able to be solved in one visit and occasionally an in-depth follow-up visit may be recommended. You may have to follow up with a doctor more than once before you are cured as well. There are some unfortunate situations where breastfeeding goals cannot be realistically met. I will be honest, supportive and help in every way I can. I may need to refer you to additional services or may recommend alternative feeding measures.
|If we agree that a follow-up visit is needed, I will re-assess, give additional resources, weigh your baby before and after the feeding, adjust our care plan as necessary and send another follow up to your provider if you want me to, and give you another ‘super-bill’.
Follow up visits typically last anywhere from an hour to 90 minutes.
This is only offered after an initial consult has been completed.
|Brief Weight Check|
|Weight checks are only available to current or previous clients. They are normally less than 30 minutes. This visit is helpful to reassure you that breastfeeding is going well and I can fine-tune our previous plans. This visit does NOT include any written plans or reports. I can still provide you with a ‘Super-Bill’ as this can count towards one of your 6 visits per some insurance companies.|
|Prenatal or Pre-adoption Consult - $60|
|I offer In-home or In-office prenatal/pre-adoption consults. This is perfect if you have any questions or want an assessment and tailored care plan due to previous issues with breastfeeding, breast surgeries, tandem nursing, inducing lactation, delivering multiples or a baby that has a known disability that may affect breastfeeding. I can answer any questions or help with any concerns you might have.
This is also a perfect option if you want just a general private breastfeeding class for you and your partner to get you off to the best possible start. I can supply you with resources and help you get off on the right foot.
This is typically a 1 hour visit

After every visit, I will provide you with a Super-bill for you to submit to your insurance company for a possible reimbursement. I do not guarantee services will be covered. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance and ask if my services are covered and what is needed from you for submission. I always suggest you call your insurance company before calling me, occasionally pre-authorization is required. There are no refunds on services.
I require 24 hours of notice for cancellations. Any last minute cancellations will be billed $100. Please keep in mind I have 2 young children of my own and I must find accommodations for them.
