Occasionally, breastfeeding problems occur that are not easily solved by telephone advice. In this instance, you and your baby may benefit by making an appointment to see a Certified Lactation Consultant in our Outpatient Breastfeeding Clinic. The Lactation Consultant will assist you in identifying the cause of the problem and will work with you to plan the management of your situation.
At your individual clinic visit, the Lactation Consultant will review your breastfeeding course, observe a feeding session and provide you with a breastfeeding plan. If appropriate, she will notify your doctor of your progress and her recommendations. Most insurance companies will cover the cost of an appointment with a Certified Lactation Consultant. Some insurance companies will require a referral from your primary care physician prior to your appointment. To make an appointment with one of our Lactation Consultants, please call 978-937-6334.
