Why use an IBCLC for Lactation Support?
Lactation consultants are clinicians that specialize in infant breastfeeding management and the treatment of lactation-specific breast pathology.
International board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) are considered the Gold Standard in lactation support and are the only professionals credentialed to provide complete clinical lactation support and care. We receive referrals from doctors, nurses, La Leche League leaders, lactation educators, and other breastfeeding specialists when an issue goes beyond minor troubleshooting.
Receiving the right kind of support from the right person is vital to overcoming challenges; contact us if you are experiencing an issue that requires clinical management.

Paying for Lactation Services Thanks to the Affordable Care Act of 2010, lactation services and supplies are now covered under most insurance plans when provided by an IBCLC. While we do not file insurance for you, we will give you a bill with diagnosis codes and other necessary information for your insurance company to reimburse you.
