As the advancement in the opening “Phases” occur, more service options will be available in the Online scheduler.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, some parts of life with a newborn have not changed; families have questions, concerns, and need support. I am still available to help.
I am proud to offer secure video based virtual consultations to all families. I may not be able to “sit” with you but I can still "be" with you. Virtual consults will allow protecting everyone’s health and safety during this unprecedented time, while still allowing us to personalize your path to meet your breast-feeding goals.
Although virtual consults have limitations by its nature, it is a useful resource. I can help with positioning and latching, sore nipples, managing milk supply including relactation, and much, much more. Consultations are also available for personal prenatal education or pumping needs.
Virtual consultations are currently covered in full by Tricare and Aetna (including Web TPN/LSU First). For all other insurance carriers, It is your responsibility contact your insurance company concerning virtual or office consultation reimbursement information.BOOK NOW

The making of breast milk is natural following the birth of a baby, but the act of breastfeeding is a learned skill for both you and your baby. In today's society, parents often receive conflicting advice about breastfeeding from well meant but misinformed friends, family and even the media. The confusion and conflicting advice is due to the differences between us. Today, families are being discharged from the hospital within 48-72 hours after delivery. This discharge often takes place well before the breastfeeding relationship is established. Research has shown that early support and assistance with the initiation of breastfeeding has a positive influence on the duration of breastfeeding and the experience for the family. When problems arise in breastfeeding, there is no universal "one size fits all" solution. Each breastfeeding pair is unique and solutions need to fit the individualized need when breastfeeding difficulties arise. This is where the role of an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and the services of Lactation Resource Center make a difference.View Services
Many parents read breastfeeding and childcare books, or even attend a breastfeeding class, yet still find themselves unprepared to have a satisfying and successful breastfeeding experience. Often, many issues can be resolved with just one or two visits with an experienced IBCLC, though some more complicated issues may take additional visits.
Lactation Resource Center believes all parents, regardless of income, should have access to quality lactation care. Quality lactation support is far less expensive than the option of not breastfeeding! Feel free to contact us if you need to discuss alternative payment options or would like information on other sources of community-based support.
