Mother Baby Consultation in Our Waterford Clinic $120
This consultation lasts up to 2 hours. We will take a full breastfeeding history, coach you through one or more feeding sessions, and assess the baby's weight. We can screen for tongue and lip tie, and perform a pre and post feeding weight if that is indicated or requested. We will provide you with written instructions to follow after the visit. There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions and discuss your concerns. After your appointment, we will communicate with your primary health care provider and/or the baby's health care provider as needed. Included in the fee for the consultation is two weeks of follow up via phone, text, or e-mail.

Wait! Does my insurance plan cover all of this?
The short answer to this, is that they should. The Affordable Care Act dictates that breastfeeding supplies and support should be provided to patients without cost-sharing. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to determine coverage before your appointment. This script can help you talk to your insurance company.
Please note that at this time, we do not bill any insurance company (we are hoping to change this in the future!). All appointment fees are collected at the time of your visit. We will provide you with a Superbill to submit to your insurance company after the visit. You can submit this to your insurance company, and they will reimburse you directly. Depending on your insurance company (and your individual plan), the amount of the reimbursement can vary greatly. It is best to contact them before your appointment so that there are no surprises.
If you have a pre-tax health care expense account, all of our services qualify for reimbursement. We also accept credit cards from these accounts.
