Lactation Consultant Home Visit

With all the best intentions to breastfeed it is not always easy. In fact, it can be downright hard. While in the hospital, many moms will not have access to a Lactation Consultant, yet the Affordable Care Act mandates this as a covered service. Whether you are breastfeeding for the first time or the fourth, there is so much to be learned from these breastfeeding experts. If you are located in Chicago or in the Chicagoland area, we can arrange for a board certified lactation consultant to come to your home to help ensure your breastfeeding journey gets off to the right start.

We highly encourage all moms to start looking at lactation consultant visits as a necessity and to start preparing for a visit while pregnant. It is an investment in your baby’s health, and it is well worth it! Plus, Ashland Women’s Health will coordinate all of the details with your insurance company, so you can have an in-home visit tailored to your specific breastfeeding needs and goals.
