I am an in-network provider for Aetna. They cover lactation home visits. Other insurance companies may reimburse you for the cost of your home visits. I will provide you with paperwork to submit.


Initial Home Visit 

 In the comfort of your own home, I will talk to you about your pregnancy and breastfeeding history. I will watch your  baby breastfeed, assess the latch, offer hands on assistance, do a weight check, examine your baby's mouth and tongue and create a care plan that feels right for you. If you like, I will send a copy of my report to your pediatrician.

Fee $275

Follow-up Home Visit 

Sometimes people need extra support, and having a follow-up visit may be just what you need. We can review how things are going, I will watch a feed and give an updated plan. I will make sure you get all of your questions answered until you feel confident in your breastfeeding journey. 

Fee $175

Prenatal Breastfeeding Visit 

I can help you feel ready to breastfeed your new baby. We can discuss your concerns and create a plan to get breastfeeding off to the best start. I will help you identify risk factors to be addressed early. Through my years of helping families with breastfeeding, I have learned that breastfeeding is different for everyone.  Let me help you find what breastfeeding looks like for you.

Fee $150


"Lynn is such a fantastic person to have as a resource, and her gentle and warm demeanor helped me feel confident and understood in what was a frustrating​ and tough experience at first. I ended up nursing my daughter for over a year, and I think Lynn had a lot to do with helping me do that."
