Hospital Partners

We want to partner with you. Nest Collaborative is a collection of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) who conduct online video appointments (covered in full by most health plans) to help guide women through their nursing journey. We partner with care teams to better serve their patients, empowering women to breastfeed more confidently.

A QUALITY SOLUTION MEETING MULTIPLE COMMUNITY HEALTH NEEDS

From prenatal education and preparation to safe infant sleep and maternal mental health, our team will be with you and your patients every step of the way. With us, you have a reliable, trusted source to improve breastfeeding rates, increase quality of care, improve maternal-child health outcomes and decrease the significant costs associated with suboptimal breastfeeding and its long-term effects.

Reduce LOS, readmissions and nuisance calls for feeding-related concerns.

Increase quality metrics and patient satisfaction with a service your patients desire.

70% OF MOTHERS WHO TRY, DON’T SUCCEED. WE’RE GIVING THEM PROVEN TOOLS TO SUCCEED.

The vast majority of nursing mothers experience problems, and are most at risk to terminate breastfeeding during the first few weeks. Most pediatric and obstetric teams are not prepared to handle high volumes of lactation concerns.

Our model implements multiple evidence-based interventions into one resource that will provide profound health and cost effects across your system.

INTEGRATED VIRTUAL ACCESS FROM THE COMFORT OF HOME, AND IT’S 100% PAYER–COVERED.

Early access to evidence-based education is essential for successful breastfeeding. We initiate a personalized lactation plan during our prenatal introduction, which includes risk assessment and planning tools. Coupled with early engagement shortly after discharge, we increase your patient’s chances of successfully meeting minimum feeding recommendations.

Easy HIPAA-compliant access from home on their phone, tablet or computer.

Covered in full by most commercial insurance plans

How Do We Work Together?

We build lasting relationships with our partners and can work with health teams in a variety of ways:

  1. Nest Collaborative works with obstetric, perinatal and pediatric teams to engage women early for comprehensive prenatal, intrapartum and proactive postpartum support
  2. Hospitals can offer our support service as a white-glove complimentary offering to mothers who choose their facility for delivery.
  3. Nest Collaborative provides primary after-hours or back-up support to your existing lactation support team.

Our services are 100% covered by most commercial health plans, without deductibles or
copays. We are happy to bill separately for our services, or we can devise alternate billing arrangements.
