Services

We provide home visits to moms and babies with a focus on lactation consultation, breastfeeding support, and newborn care.

Our goals are to provide information and support to enable parents to make the best decisions for themselves and their babies. Our referrals come from pediatricians, obstetricians, midwives, other healthcare providers as well as other new parents we have worked with. We enjoy a strong partner base that offers us wonderful resources to share with you.

A typical visit is 1–1.5 hours. The visit includes a history of mom's general health, the baby's birth, assessment of the mother's breasts, the baby's general health, oral anatomy, feeding position, latch and feeding effort. Hospital grade scales are used to assess the baby's intake during the feeding by doing weights before and after the feeding. A written plan of care will be developed with you to help move you toward your breastfeeding goals. A report is sent to the baby's doctor. Telephone or email follow up with a lactation consultant is included.

If you do not require an in home consultation but would like support, we will set up a phone consultation schedule with you.

Payment is due at the time of the visit. An insurance coded bill will be provided for you to submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement. This is not a guarantee that you will be reimbursed. Please check with your health insurance provider.

Lactation Partners has hospital grade pumps for rental. We also sell pumps, parts and other breastfeeding supplies.
