Virtual Consults for Breastfeeding and Bottle Feeding Help
I have been doing virtual visits for years, but due to COVID19 have expanded my virtual offerings to cover all of the same things that we would work on during a home visit. We may decide together that an in-person follow up is the best course of action; most follow-ups are conducted virtually as well.
I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I really CAN help you virtually. My virtual visits are in depth and completely centered around you and your family. I have virtually guided moms and parents to successfully:
- improve painful latches and nipple damage
- fix low milk supply or oversupply
- improve baby’s weight gain
- stop using the nipple shield
- help their gassy, fussy baby to be more comfortable and get more sleep
- end bottle refusal
- identify and treat tongue tie, lip tie and other oral dysfunction
- exclusively pump
- return to work (even from home) and continue making a full milk supply
- wean and stop breastfeeding or making milk
All initial virtual consults take up to 1.5 hours and are conducted via a HIPAA-compliant video chat program. Follow-ups take up to 1 hour.
I am happy to do virtual visits for people anywhere in the world!
Many insurance companies in Massachusetts, including BCBS of MA, Allways and Harvard Pilgrim are fully covering/reimbursing my families for virtual consults/telehealth due to the Coronavirus pandemic. I am in network with Aetna and Unicare and these visits should be covered under your insurance policy. For other insurances I will provide you with an itemized receipt properly coded for Telehealth after our appointment. I can not guarantee that they will reimburse. Please contact member services for your insurance company directly to discuss.
