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.

  • Confirm insurance coverage
  • We will coordinate a 60-90 minute in-home visit with a local IBCLC.
  • Provide you with the necessary paperwork to submit to your insurance company
  • Any reimbursement you recoup is yours to keep. Please note, the reimbursement amount may vary
  • Get help teaching your baby how to latch
  • Learn how to build and maintain your milk supply
  • Ask questions regarding supplementation

Sleep Training

Ashland Health is proud to now be offering sleep training services to those in Chicago or the Chicagoland area! The truth is that for a mom, a baby who sleeps through the night is a game changer, not only for your physical health, but your mental health as well. Sleep is important for both mom and baby: More sleep can reduce mom’s risk for postpartum depression and overall stress, while sleep is essential for a baby’s development.

Our expert sleep trainer tailors services to your family’s needs. Opt for three nights of in-home consulting followed by 11 days of phone consulting or remote service where you’ll communicate over the phone for two weeks. All services start with an hour-long phone call to assess your situation and learn about your preferences on the techniques used.

“We went from our son waking 4-5 times a night on average (and for many nights it was more than that) to sleeping through the night within 3 days,” says Allison H from Chicago.
