Breastfeeding

Support

 

Every mom deserves to have the support she needs to meet her breastfeeding goals. 

I offer lactation support in your home in the Gwinnett County, Ga area or anywhere in the world via a telehealth visit.  

Breastfeeding is all natural but it is not always so easy to get started...

You and your baby are completely new to all of this.  ... you have to expect there to be a little learning curve. But, luckily you don't have to go it alone. I happen to LOVE helping new mamas and babies with breastfeeding . And with over 30 years of experience helping mamas and babies as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (and  having breastfed my own 4 boys)- you can trust that you will be met with kindness, compassion and the knowledge and support you need to help you reach your own goals. You won't find any guilt here. So, let's find the best way to meet your motherhood goals right where you are.    

I Accept Most Insurance Plans 

 If you are interested in scheduling a lactation consultation, and you have insurance, let's START HERE first. I accept most insurance plans including BCBS PPO, Cigna and United through Lactation Network. They will verify your coverage and if your policy is in-network you will receive 3 visits at no cost to you. Verification is very quick - usually less than 90 minutes. 

  1. Click the link to verify your coverage. 
  2. Check your email for your approval
  3.  Then book your appointment below or email me
  4. If your insurance is not in-network, book your appointment under  Lactation Consult without Insurance link below
  5. (I have various payment options including payment plans and HSA/FSA accounts. ) I will give you a superbill to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.

If you have any questions send me a message on the contact form at the bottom of the page.

Virtual Lactation Consults

I actually LOVE doing virtual consults. They are much more relaxed (moms aren't so worried about the dirty dishes in the sink and the new baby mess all over the house - but I would never even notice that anyway - mom of 4 boys and all 🤣) There are some challenges to overcome by not being together in person but with an experienced lactation consultant (like me!) and some good props and instructions, we can work through these issues . And of course, the ability to meet virtually means no matter where you are in the world, lactation consultations are available to you.

In Home Lactation Consults (Metro Atlanta - Gwinnett)

In Home Lactation Consultations are the gold standard of lactation support because you can get the most hands on assistance from the lactation consultant. In this consult, both mother and baby can receive the most thorough examinations with the maximum amount of hands-on positioning and assistance. In this consult, the baby can also be weighed. This type of consultation is only available to families in my local Gwinnett County/Metro Atlanta area. Of course, I have received my COVID vaccines and will take precautions to keep you are your family safe.

Love from Dream Baby Mamas

Kate - First Time Mom

LuAnn truly understands families and supports us with practical solutions that are best for the health and wellness of children. After seeing a couple of lactation consultants in the hospital, LuAnn was the only person to help my daughter latch. She always follows up to check in with you and is always so kind and professional. We are so lucky to know LuAnn. 

Jennifer Hunt - Working Mom

I’m breastfeeding my daughter and was incredibly anxious about losing my milk supply while traveling for work. I asked several experienced friends, but never quite got the answers I needed to help me feel comfortable hopping on a plane without being able to nurse my baby. LuAnn asked 4 quick questions and then gave me the info I needed to make a decision that was right for me and my baby. I went on my work trip with confidence and only wish I’d asked LuAnn for advice sooner.
