Breastfeeding is too hard!
Breastfeeding is so hard!
As of July, 2018, only RN/Licensed IBCLC's will be reimbursable in Georgia. The cost of a home lactation consultation and the support you receive after is far less expensive than a year of formula, bottles, and missed days at work/loss of productivity from having a baby who is sick more often in their first year. Insurance often covers up to six visits. Usually, one or two sessions is all you need to learn the basics and get off to a great start breastfeeding your baby. I will do what ever I can to ensure you receive reimbursement. Once I see you, I am available for ongoing support via text, email and phone.
If you are not sure about what your insurance covers or you are uninsured, we can develop a plan for you and your baby.
Why choose an IBCLC?
All of these misconceptions are so common among new and even experienced mothers. An IBCLC is a "feeding expert" who has completed 90 hours of specialized education directly related to breastfeeding, infant and breast development and at least 2000 practice hours. She is an expert in the clinical management of breastfeeding and has passed the International Board Certification Exam.
If your car needs attention, you do not call your sister or friend, you take it to an expert in car repair.
If you need help with feeding your baby, you will benefit from the expertise of an IBCLC. My visits typically last three or more hours. They are not rushed, you do not have to drive anywhere, navigate a parking deck, register and carry your car seat, baby, pump, stroller, water and food. I will meet you in your pj's at your house. I am there to support you whether you want to breastfeed for a week, month or years.
Another reason to use an IBCLC is that it is covered by most insurance under preventative care. I will provide you with the necessary paperwork for reimbursement at our visit. I work closely with your insurance carrier to resolve any difficulty you may experience.
Credit card, check and Health Spending Account (HSA/FSA) cards are all accepted.
