Coronavirus Update

Lactation Partners is committed to supporting new families during these challenging times. We follow CDC and IDPH guidelines for social distancing within the home, and we will mask for the duration of the visit. We practice diligent hand washing technique and sterilize our scales and equipment used during the visit. All of our IBCLCs have been vaccinated and boosted. We also ask that our patients notify us if they have been (or believe they have been) exposed to the COVID 19 virus.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to help and support you as you welcome your sweet baby into your life. We are all in this together.

In-home Consultations

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 1–2 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.

We work with families in the city of Chicago from the south loop north through the many neighborhoods of the city and into the northern suburbs.

Our in-home consultation fee is $260 (twins $300) **Note: There is a $30 cancellation fee for scheduled home visits

Telehealth Consultations

Our practice also offers phone consultations and tele-conferencing as part of our breastfeeding support and guidance. Tele-conferences are conducted over the Zoom platform and are billed as a fee for service. Tele-conferences last 60-90 minutes, including virtual guidance through a breastfeeding session, instruction using your breast pump, and the implementation of an individualized feeding care plan. A report is sent to your physicians and follow up guidance is provided for one month via phone and email.

Our telehealth consultation fee is $175


Lactation Partners hosts an appointment-only clinic. It's a casual and comfortable place to nurse your baby. Our clinic provides you the opportunity to have reassurance with your baby’s latch, feed quality, a weight check or just an opportunity to connect with other breastfeeding mothers. This is not meant to replace an in-home lactation consultation.
