I have been working for mothers for the last ten years in the hospital setting as well as in private practice. I have always had a love of infants and find joy assisting mothers in the first weeks and months of their baby's life. I pursue finding solutions and alternatives that work for families and enable parents to enjoy the breastfeeding experience. This may take many forms, each family and breastfeeding pair is unique. I have experience with preterm and late preterm infants both in the hospital setting and post-discharge. Breastfeeding an infant does not always happen easily, though it is a natural process! There is always guidance that is helpful along the way. My fee per visit includes any correspondence before and after the visit. This includes contact by text, email and phone. A home visit typically is two hours in duration to enable enough time to go thoroughly over your babies feeding patterns, assist with latching, and cover any issues you may be experiencing. After your visit I will supply an invoice with appropriate billing codes and information to make the process of gaining reimbursement as smooth as possible. In Massachusetts most health insurance plans reimburse 100% for lactation visits that occur with an IBCLC, however it is always good to check first with your insurance. I am an approved provider with the leading insurance companies in the Boston area.
