My offerings begin even before your sweet babe joins us earth side. I provide small group and private (in-home) education that will give you a solid foundation for feeding your baby and prepare you to navigate your lactation experience with confidence.

I can visit you throughout the postpartum period to provide guidance and reassurance. I will help you determine what success looks like to YOU and cultivate a plan to make it happen.

I can provide lactation consultations as an IBCLC, offering clinical support where I will assess feeding effectiveness and collaborate with you to make a care plan to reach your goals. I may offer referrals to other providers to utilize a comprehensive approach and can provide your healthcare team with reports as needed.

Referrals to qualified providers are made with consideration of appropriate need, urgency, location, personality and budget concerns. I do not receive nor offer referral fees.

I have partnered with The Lactation Network which is an organization that may be able to bill your PPO insurance company directly resulting in lactation visits at no cost to you. See if your insurance has agreed to work with The Lactation Network below.

If your insurance company has not agreed to work with The Lactation Network you are welcome to book with me and will be provided an invoice to be paid at time of booking. Following our visit I will provide a superbill that can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement, however reimbursement of any amount is not guaranteed.

How may I best 
support you on this journey?

 

Rachelle truly was my saving grace after I gave birth to my son. I was really struggling with breastfeeding and the baby blues. She always responded with such uplifting messages and came to my rescue when I was ready to throw in the towel with breastfeeding. She helped my son and I make it to over 2 years of exclusive breastfeeding! I was struggling with being a new mom and I’ll never forget her kind words and how she truly heard and understood every emotion I was feeling. Rachelle is just simply amazing
