(318) 308-9848
What do I need to do to prepare for a consultation?

Start making a list with all your questions and concerns, fill out the required three forms before the initial consultation so we can have more time with you and your baby and try to schedule the feeding during our visit (only if you need assistance or need feeding evaluated). It is ok if you are not able to do this. Babies are babies and we cannot force them to comply with our schedules. We will be able to help you regardless of us seeing a feeding. Do not worry about cleaning- we do not mind. We want you to be comfortable in your own space. We will do an oral and feeding assessment (if needed) and weigh the baby to make a plan that you can start following right away to help you achieve your goals.

For my in-home consultation is there a travel fee?

There are no travel fees if you are located within a 30 minute drive from Springdale, AR, our home base. Before confirming your appointment we will let you know if there will be a travel fee.

Is my partner welcome in the support group?

Yes! We encourage all our expecting and new mothers to invite their partner, grandmother or even a friend if partner is not available to all our classes and consultations. Studies show that immediate family support will increase the confidence of the mother in her ability to breastfeed. After all, it takes a tribe to raise a child and there is strength in numbers.

How many weeks pregnant should I be to schedule my prenatal consultation or Breastfeeding Class?

We recommend you are at least 25 weeks pregnant before calling to schedule both your prenatal consultation and your Breastfeeding Class. We also recommend joining the weekly Mama's Support Groups before your baby is born to prepare yourself the best way you can and make new friends.

Are you vaccinated for Covid-19?

Yes, I am fully vaccinated. Universal precautions will be taken with the use of mask and gloves if preferred.

I don't know if my insurance covers your services, how do I find out?

The insurances we cover are in a list below all the questions on this page. If your insurance is not in the list, we will still help you. Call us or click the check insurance button for more information.

What if my insurance is not covered?

If your insurance does not cover lactation services or you do not have health insurance, we will still help you. We are fully committed to serve everyone who asks. Please text/ call or email me directly for more information.

How soon can we schedule an appointment? What days of the week are you available?

I will schedule you within 24 hours of your reaching out to us, expect some delay on Sundays and after hours. I work Monday through Saturday from 9am to 9pm. We will call you as soon as you send your request to us and will schedule you asap.

If I do not want to exclusively breastfeed, can you still help?

Of course! You decide what type of lactation you want to do. We are here to help you reach your goals.

What is the difference between the prenatal consultation and the Breastfeeding Class?

The prenatal consultation is a one to one time for the expectant couple to talk with the Lactation Consultant(LC) and go over what is most important for you and your family. The Breastfeeding Class is a fun interactive couples workshop that covers the basics of lactation in the 21st Century. We encourage mothers to bring a plush toy, a baby blanket and the pump to practice positioning & latch, new techniques and what to do if you encounter challenges in the first days.
