Lactation home visits in Queens and Brooklyn
A therapeutic approach to infant feeding challenges
As an IBCLC in private practice, I provide home visits for lactation support for breastfeeding and chestfeeding families. My care is client-centered, aimed at identifying my client’s goals while providing up-to-date information and recommendations on infant feeding and nutrition, and your own nutrition during lactation. I value the individual lived experiences that my clients bring to parenting, and I always meet my clients where they are.
Initial Home Visit (90 min) $350
Follow Up Visit (60 min) $250

Have Aetna? I'm in-network!
Did you know that if I'm not in-network with your insurance company, you can request reimbursement for my services under the Affordable Care Act? I'll provide you with the documentation you need. The National Women's Law Center has a great toolkit for accessing your right to breastfeeding support under the ACA.

My personal story
When my older daughter was born in 2007, I had no idea breastfeeding was going to be so hard! We had so many problems in the beginning, and when I reached out for help, I had no idea I was about to launch myself into a whole new career. After getting amazing help and support from IBCLC Catherine Watson Genna, I began attending La Leche League meetings in my home neighborhood of Sunnyside, Queens. I became fascinated by everything related to breastfeeding, and by the time my younger daughter was born in 2010 I had completed all the educational requirements to sit for the board exam to become certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I finished my clinical requirements in 2011 and passed the exam that same year. I've been in private practice ever since. I am also the author of several books.
I spend 1.5 hours with you and your baby, and will do a complete assessment and create a written management plan to help you meet your breastfeeding goals. My fee for the initial visit is $350 or I take Aetna insurance. If you don’t have Aetna, I recommend calling your insurance provider to request pre-authorization to see an out-of-network provider (aka me). Here’s a great collection of articles on insurance reimbursement for lactation services.
I do not allow appointments to be booked more than 2 weeks in advance except under special circumstances. If you don’t see availability, you can contact me about my waiting list for last minute cancellations or additional availability if you live in Sunnyside or Astoria..
