We examine mother and baby, record birth/infant/maternal medical histories, weigh baby before & after each feeding, assess and correct any immediate issues.  Your personal Care Plan is prepared for you, and full reports are faxed to your pediatrician for each visit. Mothers and or babies may be referred to additional providers, as necessary for any beneficial therapies or procedures.

If you have a simple issue, one visit may be enough. If there are more complex issues, such as: slow infant weight gain, low milk supply, special feeding challenges, very damaged nipples, Induced or Relactation, one or more follow-up visits may be necessary to achieve your feeding goals & to insure baby's health. 

IN-OFFICE VISIT: The same proce
ss occurs as is described in the In-Home Visit but you & baby come to our office for your consultation. Our Office Location is: 1526 Archery Lane, Garland, 75044 - with our in-office consultant, Sharon Mattes, IBCLC, RLC

VIRTUAL - TELEHEALTH:  You will connect on computer, tablet, or smartphone.  Appropriate technology assists and clear photos and videos make this type of consult more effective.

PAYMENT: - We prefer Cash or Check - Payment is due at time of service. Credit Cards and many other forms of payment are usually accepted. Ask your Consultant what works best for her. HSA cards are accepted.

INSURANCE COVERAGE: - Verify your coverage through  'The Lactation Network' at a link on each Consultant's pageIf prior to our planned Visit, you are unable to get Insurance authorization - payment must be made at the Appointment.   

Just because The Lactation Network cannot accept your insurance, doesn't mean you aren't covered. If your insurance company does not have in-network consultants, we have self-pay options available that allow you to submit a claim for reimbursement to your insurance company directly. Please call the customer service or member phone number on the back of your insurance card for specific information related to your plan & lactation consultations.
