Before Your Visit Do's & Don'ts
Complete intake questionnaire that will be emailed to you. I cannot examine you without a signed consent and answering the questions during the visit will reduce the time we have to work on solutions.
Avoid feeding baby the hour before our visit as best you can (short "snack" feeds if baby is very hungry).
Compile a list of your questions.
Ensure a flat hard surface is available to place my scale (table or counter at least 20"x26")
Be prepared to nurse your baby as usual with me present.
Provide any special instructions (street sweeping, parking restrictions, gate, code, etc.)
Consider the nature of in-home services and be mindful that I may request to arrive earlier than scheduled or I may run behind due to unforeseen circumstances like traffic, patient emergency etc..
Worry about cleaning your house, I'm focused on you and your baby.
Hesitate to share your feelings about how things are going, your comfort level with my support, and your safety and/or mental health.
The Affordable Care Act ensures access to breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling. Lactation consultation services by an out of network provider may be covered by your insurance. I am able to provide a superbill for you to submit to your insurance carrier. They may offer reimbursement for a portion of the service fee. Insurance coverage varies greatly and I cannot guarantee reimbursement. The National Women's Law Center has provided a toolkit to assist women in getting the coverage they are entitled to.
