Breastfeeding is a beautiful and natural experience for parents and their children, but the reality is often more complex than anticipated. Most parents find the presence of a calm and supportive expert in the field is essential to their success.
Breastfeed Atlanta accepts health insurance, and we are In-Network Providers for Aetna, Coventry, QualCare, Allina, Banner, Innovation, and Medicare. Many patients have visits covered with no out of pocket expense. We will verify your benefits and inform you at the time of service if you have any co-pays, coinsurance or deductible due. Please contact us for more information.
This service is helpful for situations when:
Parents feel uneasy about breastfeeding and need reassurance
Infant refuses to latch
Parents have concerns about milk supply - too little or too much milk
Breastfeeding is painful
Infant is experiencing low or slow weight gain
Parents have been told to they may need to feed formula
Parents have received conflicting advice on breastfeeding
You Can Expect
You will meet with an experienced and compassionate International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) either in your home or in our office.
Your IBCLC will take a thorough history, assist with feeding and perform pre-and post-feed weight checks to measure the volume of milk your infant transfers.
You will be provided with accurate, evidence based information to form a customized plan for you and your baby.
Your parenting and feeding decisions will be supported unconditionally.
Your IBCLC will provide ongoing support and encouragement after your consultation via email, phone calls, or follow up visits.
A report of your consultation will be sent to your physician and/or midwife.
