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.

  • I really appreciate your help, Lorna. Things started turning around after your visit. Although I had already reduced my milk intake, eliminating all remaining dairy had an enormous impact on Avery’s issues, and really solved our colic problems pretty much right off the bat. One thing that was very telling is that about a month later, I had about 24 hours where I decided I’d try milk again, and we had sour cream, cheese and whatnot…We had a miserable 24 hours and I actually threw away three bottles that I had pumped because it was just so bad. I immediately went back on soy milk. Thanks again. Kathryn Laird
