Now Accepting Insurance!
Families with participating Blue Cross Blue Shield, BCBS Anthem, Cigna and United PPO's may qualify for three lactation consultations in their home, my office or virtually at no out-of-pocket cost. (Home visit distances greater than 25 miles from Fernandina will incur a small travel fee that is not covered by insurance). If your insurance is not accepted as in-network by Lactation Network, a Superbill will be provided for you to submit to your insurance for full or partial reimbursement based on your plan.
Community Lactation and Parenting offers virtual consultations as a way for breastfeeding families to get expert clinical support and information in the comfort of their own homes. A comprehensive history of your pregnancy, birth and feeding history will be collected prior to our appointment. Assessment of positioning and latch will be performed via video (it's helpful for you to have a support person available to help). We will work together to develop a care plan based on your feeding goals. A detailed report will be sent to the physicians involved in the care of breastfeeding parent and baby and a superbill will be provided to self-pay clients for submission to insurance for potential reimbursement.
Weekly Baby Weigh Community Drop-In
This service is for previously established clients and done in office on Wednesday ONLY. This is an easy way for clients to drop in and get a quick weight for baby and ask simple questions without scheduling a full consultation. You'll have the opportunity to weigh your baby and get your "quick" questions answered with evidence-based, empathic support. This is NOT a comprehensive consultation, but a brief weight check opportunity. If you would like a longer, more detailed visit, please consider scheduling a full follow-up visit.
In-Office Lactation Consultations
This friendly and comprehensive private consultation in our cozy office focuses on a detailed history of your pregnancy, birth and feeding experience including breast exam, infant oral and anatomical examination, comprehensive feeding assessment, a personalized care plan centered on your feeding goals, communication with your health care providers and an insurance superbill for self-pay clients to submit for reimbursement. Two weeks of secure messaging follow-up included. We have office hours each Wednesday and evenings and weekends.
Private Parenting Support Sessions
Parenting is HARD. Sometimes we need a non-judgmental place to help process behavior patterns in our children and discover our personal triggers. Listening actively and reflecting in a confidential environment often empowers parents to deeply examine the emotional and developmental needs of their children. We will discuss strategies unique to your situation and create a parenting action plan. If beneficial to your family, a referral to a counseling professional knowledgable in attachment theory will be made.
In-Home Lactation Consultations
These relaxed consultations allow for skilled, hands-on help in the privacy and comfort of your own home. They usually last about 2 hours and include a detailed history of your pregnancy, birth and feeding experience, including breast exam, infant oral and anatomical examination, comprehensive feeding assessment, a personalized care plan centered on your feeding goals, communication with your health care providers and an insurance superbill for self-pay clients to submit for reimbursement. Two weeks of secure messaging follow-up included.
