Virtual Consults for Breastfeeding and Bottle Feeding Help

virtual visits for breastfeeding 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.
