Important information regarding lactation consults

Please fill out an intake form to request an in home or virtual consultation.

If you're planning ahead for your lactation consultations here's how things work.

I recommend you contact me soon after you deliver the baby and before you’re discharged from the hospital, that way we can schedule a consult within the first few days home. Typically I schedule consults in the first week when the milk comes in, then a follow up consult the 2nd week, and a pumping/introducing a bottle consult around 3-5wks. This consult schedule is of course flexible due to moms/families needs for lactation support.

  • BCBSVT- "In network provider" for virtual and in home visits.
  • Check your insurance company for coverage of in home and telemedicine (virtual) lactation services.

Due to COVID-19 I am recommending families purchase a baby scale if financially able, this will help with the virtual consults and will reduce visits to the pediatrician for weight checks. Here are a few links to Amazon.com for inexpensive infant scales.
