Office Visit Fees: $195 for Initial visit and $165 for follow ups

We are an in-network provider with Aetna. Aetna does not cover the extra fee for a home visit, so Aetna clients will be responsible for paying a home visit fee of $55 for initial visits and $35 for follow ups.  Aetna clients will also be billed for any copays applicable (generally on the baby's insurance). 

Prenatal Lactation Consultation

The best time to meet with your Lactation Consultant is before you have your baby.  Whether you are a first time mother, or had problems breastfeeding your previous children, this meeting with an IBCLC will help you put together a plan for your breastfeeding success.

Prenatal consultations generally last 1-2 hours and include a full health history, review of previous breastfeeding issues, review of breastfeeding basics (latch, positioning, etc.) and creation of a breastfeeding plan for mother and baby.

Office Visit Fee: $125 per couple

Home Visit Fee: $200 per couple

To help provide support for mothers in areas that do not have qualified Lactation Support, we can provide Lactation Consultations via Skype or Google Hangouts.  
​Fee: $75 per hour
