frequently asked questions
What is an IBCLC?
IBCLC’s (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants) are certified healthcare professionals trained in the clinical management of breastfeeding.
I provide mothers and healthcare professionals with evidence-based education on breastfeeding and lactation. I’ll help you reach your personal lactation goal, and assist you with issues including low milk supply and pain as a response to pumping.
My breastfeeding issues seem unsolvable, how can you help?
I have been assisting mothers and babies with breastfeeding for years. I have seen many complicated issues and have helped many families overcome them. I have experience in multi-faceted breastfeeding matters. However, if I am unable to help you, I will be able to steer you in the right direction for further specialty care if I think it is appropriate.
Do You Accept Insurance?
Under the Affordable Care Act, many insurance companies are required to cover preventative lactation services without any additional costs or copays. All of the visits are eligible through your insurance and/or through your health savings account or flexible spending account. At this time, I am not an in-network provider with any insurance company. However, I do work with The Lactation Network for coverage of some insurance plans. Click here to see if you qualify. If your insurance does not participate with The Lactation Network, at the end of our visit I will provide you with a superbill to make getting reimbursed from your insurance as easy as possible! Please contact me if you have any additional questions about insurance coverage or a superbill.
Will You Wear a Mask at our Visit?
What areas do you serve in Florida?
I already had help with lactation from someone else or in the hospital, how can you help me?
Can I text you if I have question?
Of course! I will answer all questions about booking a visit via text. After you have signed a waiver acknowledging that texting is not a HIPAA compliant way of communicating, we can text each other. If you feel more at ease using a HIPAA compliant manner to communicate, you can email me instead. I don’t mind answering a quick or simple question by text, but if it has been a while since our last visit or you have are having a brand new issue that we have never had a consult about, I will need you to book a follow-up visit so that we can give your issue the complete and full attention that it needs.
