Lactation Support Services

As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I am passionate about providing education and support to families throughout their breastfeeding & lactation journeys. I am available to provide breastfeeding support both before and after the birth of your baby.  Consultations are available  in your home, my office or virtually.

As a lactation consultant I can assist with:

  • Prenatal education

  • Hands on breastfeeding instruction & support

  • Hands on pumping instruction & support including proper flange fit

  • Assistance with positioning and latching

  • Assistance with breastfeeding challenges (sore, cracked, and/or bleeding nipples, engorgement, low milk supply, oversupply, plugged ducts, etc.)

  • Guidance for oral restrictions (Lip & tongue ties)

  • Guidance with expressing/pumping breast milk, introducing the bottle and returning to work

  • Resources and referrals as necessary

 

Scheduling

  • Appointments cancelled within 24 hours are subject to a cancellation fee of $50, which is not covered by insurance.

  • Self-pay clients must make payment in full in order to book an appointment.

  • Initial consultations are 90 minutes, follow-up consultations are 60 minutes. If you believe you will need additional time, please communicate with me about it prior to scheduling; additional fees may apply.

  • Initial visits & follow up visits can be scheduled in your home, in my home office or virtually.

 

Fees

If your insurance is pre-approved to cover your visit, you will owe nothing on the day of the appointment.

I am partnered with The Lactation Network and am currently able to accept Anthem, Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Cigna PPO  & CHAMPVA plans. You may be eligible for up to 6 lactation visits that are covered by your insurance!


To check your eligibility, Click this link. After insurance approval has been verified, we will both receive an email and then I will reach out to you and schedule an appointment.

If insurance cannot be pre-approved, you will owe your consult fee in full when you schedule your appointment.

If you are on Medi-Cal, WIC, receiving unemployment or currently have an insurance plan that doesn't cover my services please contact me for information on discounted services. Discounted visits do not apply to in home consultations- only consultations at my Modesto office.
