FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you take insurance?
I accept some insurance providers through The Lactation Network. Visit the K + K Lactation TLN page to check and see if your insurance provider is covered.
If requested, I can provide you with a superbill that can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. Reimbursement rates are determined by each individual insurance plan. Please consult your insurance provider for details.
Is there a difference between each program?
There are only two differences between each of the three programs.
The first is the length of time you wish to have me support you.
I offer a 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month post-partum program.
While some moms benefit from having me for just the first 3 months postpartum, other moms see great value in having me support them until baby hits 6 months old or even one year old!
Second, I give scheduling priority to moms who book me for the first 12 months postpartum.
What does a typical appointment look like?
A typical initial appointment begins with discussing your breastfeeding goals and any issues you are experiencing. This is followed by physical assessments of you (the breastfeeding parent) and baby and a weighing, if necessary.
Then a feeding will be observed and I’ll discuss my thoughts and potential care plan. I encourage you to ask any questions you have throughout the appointment!
The appointment concludes with confirming a care plan, which I’ll put in writing and send to you after the appointment.
How do I prepare for my appointment?
You’ll receive a link to the portal from me after our consultation.
For the appointment it’s just you and your baby — so whatever makes you comfortable!
Show up as you are — in your pajamas or half-naked or whatever you’re feeling that day!
If you’ve been using any breastfeeding aids (a specific pillow, breast pump, etc) I suggest having them available though.
What if I don’t know which package is right for me?
Not a problem! Let’s schedule a strategy session where I’ll learn about your goals and help you choose the best plan for you!
What if I want to change packages later on?
My packages are crafted with you in mind!
During our free strategy session we’ll discuss your goals and choose the right plan for you.
If you find out later you’d like to extend your time, that’s no problem. We can just upgrade you to whichever plan feels right for you!
What does doula work entail?
This varies so much for you and your specific needs, as well as the needs of your baby!
This is also something I love to dive deep into in a free strategy session.
Whether you need snacks while you relax, light cooking and cleaning, or to learn how to change diapers — I’m here to support you and your baby.
How does infant massage work and why is it important?
We teach infant massage in 5 different sections: legs, stomach, chest and arms, face, and back.
Those are the 5 different lessons I offer for infant massage, and I teach you whichever ones you think will be most beneficial for your baby.
For example, if your baby has a lot of digestion troubles or tummy trouble, I teach you how to do stomach massages.
If your baby has trouble opening his or her mouth wide enough to get a good latch, we would work on the face massages to help relax their face muscles.
If your baby is super active, the leg massages are amazing because their legs get tired when they’re kicking non-stop.
When you make it part of your daily routine, it’s a wonderful bonding experience for you and your baby, and you both begin to look forward to it every day as well!
