Prenatal Lactation Consultations
Prenatal lactation consultations can take place in our office or in the comfort of your own home. The best time to have a prenatal appointment is 4-6 weeks before your due date. During the appointment your medical history will be gathered and reviewed and any concerns you might have will be addressed. Breastfeeding basics such as positioning, latch, feeding frequency/duration, typical newborn behaviors, and ways to achieve the best start to your breastfeeding journey immediately after giving birth will also be discussed. This is also a great time to discuss past breastfeeding problems and/or health issues that may cause difficulties with breastfeeding. A physical breast exam will be done to rule out any anatomical issues that may interfere with a smooth breastfeeding experience.
In Home (Prenatal) Consultation (60 min) - $100
In Office (Prenatal) Consultation (60 min) - $75
Prenatal/Postnatal Consultation Package (In Home $200, In-Office $140)
Most insurance companies provide coverage for lactation consultations. If you are not an Aetna subscriber, at the end of your appointment, you will be provided with all the necessary paperwork needed to submit a claim to your insurance company to request reimbursement. Breastfeeding Consultants of San Diego, LLC does not guarantee your insurance company will reimburse some or all of your payment as all insurance carriers/plans are different.
