We offer phone consults and home visits from our international board certified lactation consultant. Your postpartum time is sacred for you and your baby. If we can help make breastfeeding easier we'd love to support you right in your home! It makes such a difference to get professional help in your own space, where your lactation consultant can see exactly where you feed your baby (or babies!) every day and night. 

​Birth Kalamazoo's lactation consultant is available to help after your baby is born, and also for pre-birth strategy sessions to help you prepare for nursing (especially helpful for experienced moms who had difficulties breastfeeding earlier babies). Working moms, check out our back-to-work strategy session! Our lactation consultant will help you get to know your pump, work with you on a pumping schedule, offer tips for maximizing production and more.

Charges are as follows:

Phone Consultation
$60/hour, charged in 15-minute increments ($15 per 15 minutes)

In-Home Lactation Consulting
$100 first visit (typically 1.5 - 2 hours, plus phone follow-up)
$60/hour subsequent visits

Back-to-Work Strategy Session
$100 per session (typically 60-90 minutes)

Our lactation consultant offers home visits in Kalamazoo and Portage, MI and surrounding areas. Home visits may also be possible for families who live in Battle Creek, Plainwell, Richland, Galesburg, Vicksburg, Three Rivers, Benton Harbor and St. Joseph, but an additional mileage fee applies.

Details receipts are available for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. New national insurance legislation requires coverage for lactation consulting and many of our clients have been reimbursed. Please ask your lactation consultant or check with your insurance company for more information.
