  • What are your hours?
    Our hours vary daily. Please select the "Book Now" button on the service page for appointment availability. If no appointment times work for you, please reach out to us directly and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Once your appointment is booked, a staff member will contact your with confirmation and further information. We do try to schedule urgent appointments within 24 to 48 hours. In some cases, we can do same day. We are generally closed on Fridays and Sundays but will take appointments occasionally on Fridays if the Lactation Consultant is available. We will do emergency appointments on Sundays for an extra fee if the Lactation Consultant is available.
  • What do you think of a tongue tie and lip tie?
    It is not within an IBCLC’s scope of practice to diagnose a tongue or lip tie. However, we are skilled at assessing for lip & tongue frenulums (ties) and their impact on mom’s nipple comfort, baby’s ability to move milk from the breast, its effect on milk supply, and infant weight gain. We can help you to optimize position and latch techniques when baby has ties. Our priority is to use the "tricks of the trade" to optimize latch, and milk transfer before recommending referral to a higher level provider for evaluation. We can help you find providers skilled at diagnosing and intervening with lip & tongue tie (Ankyloglossia).

  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Appointments canceled in less than 24 hours will have a $50 cancellation fee. You can reschedule once at no cost. You will be provided an appointment reminder via email 25 hours prior to the visit.
  • How are the fees and prices determined?
    Prices are set to reflect the time spent in each consultation. Our visits are between 60 & 90 minutes face to face with the client. We can easily spend several more hours on a mom and baby before and after the visit especially the first visit. In most cases we can spend up to 2-4 hours of time on each visit. For home visits, time spend in travel to and from your home requires even more time. At your first visit, we collect a focused history & physical on you and your baby. We review all data prior to your visit. We send you a reminder of the pre visit feeding instructions 24 hours before your visit. During the visit we do a full feeding evaluation, teach how to correct the problems, and verbally give an individualized plan of care for you & your baby. After each visit, the LC fully charts your visit & creates a detailed "After Visit Summary" summarizing all that was covered in the visit & a reminder of the plan and sends to you via email. In some cases, research is needed to build a great plan for you. This requires the LC to spend even more time on your case. If needed, we will send a report to your doctor, pediatrician or any other provider. We never charge more than the consultation price except for convenience fees for home visit. The cash pricing for our services are listed as a prompt pay discount. This means the prices reflect a significant discount if services are paid in full at the time of booking the appointment. Otherwise our prices resemble what would be billed to an insurance company.
