Lactation Consults

I am available for lactation consults in your home. I will assess mom, weigh and assess the baby, and observe and evaluate a feeding. You will receive a written plan of care. Prescription medications may be ordered if necessary.

I am in network with the following insurance companies:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Empire
  • Cigna
  • United Healthcare
  • ConnectiCare

I submit the claims, you are only responsible for the copay at the time of the consult (if applicable).

What if my insurance company says they don’t cover lactation consults?

Lactation consultants are not licensed providers recognized by most insurance companies, and their services are often viewed as “educational” rather than medical. However, since I am a nurse practitioner, I practice what is often called breastfeeding medicine, caring for medical problems related to breastfeeding. These services are and have always been covered when provided by a physician or nurse practitioner.

Home consults are available in the Fairfield County, CT and Westchester, N.Y. areas

Please call or e-mail to make arrangements.

  • Dear Lorna, This is a very belated thank you, but the timing seems appropriate. On Monday my daughter and I will achieve a major milestone – 6 months of successful breastfeeding. It was very important to me to breastfeed for at least 6 months, but when my daughter was 7 weeks old, I was in so much pain that I did not think we would be able to achieve this goal. Fortunately, that is when Dr. Cahill recommended that I call you. The protocol and encouragement you provided allowed me to continue to breastfeed – and to grow to love it! Now I think I will even continue to breastfeed for another 6 months! Thank you so much for your help. You are a gifted practitioner! Suzanna Pollak
