motherhood can be exhausting,
we’re here to help


How do I know if baby is getting enough milk?
Is my milk in?
Why am I in pain?
Do I wake my baby to eat?
Why is my baby crying?
When should I pump?
How often should baby be feeding?
Is it normal to want to quit?

We’ve been there, we know what it’s like. The postpartum period can be full of emotions and, too often, frustration over lactation concerns can cloud the more beautiful moments.
Let us step in.


and…it’s free

The ACA mandates that lactation support be a fully covered health benefit for all women.
For members of our partner networks, you may be eligible for up to 6 lactation visits with us, per pregnancy, with no out of pocket cost.

Once you schedule your visit, your eligibility with your individual health plan will be confirmed prior to your appointment.

Identifying nursing issues early helps ensure a happy and healthy breastfeeding experience.
Our board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) provide easy access to feeding support for common newborn feeding-related concerns.
All of our providers are mothers themselves, with first-hand knowledge of the reality of nursing a newborn.

For new and seasoned mothers alike, nursing journeys are unique, and challenges arise along the way. Our babies and their needs are constantly changing.
