Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
I accept some insurance providers through The Lactation Network. Clients should visit the K + K Lactation TLN page to check and see if their insurance provider is covered.
If requested, I can provide clients with a superbill that can be submitted to the client’s insurance company for reimbursement. Reimbursement rates are determined by each client’s individual insurance plan. Clients should consult their insurance provider for details.
What does a typical appointment look like?
A typical initial appointment begins with discussing the family's breastfeeding goals and any issues they are experiencing. This is followed by physical assessments of the breastfeeding parent and baby and a weighing, if necessary. Then a feeding will be observed and I will discuss my thoughts and potential care plan. You are encouraged to ask any questions you have throughout the appointment. The appointment concludes with confirming a care plan, which I will put in writing and send to you after the appointment.
What's included in the fee?
The visit fee includes the scheduled appointment as well as two weeks of virtual follow up via secure messaging (and phone if necessary).
How do I prepare for my appoitment?
All clients are encouraged to complete the intake form and sign the consent forms before the appointment in order to maximize our time during the session. These forms are completed via the MilkNotes portal. You will receive a link to the MilkNotes portal once you have booked your appointment.
For the appointment, clients only need to bring themselves and their baby! If you have been using any breastfeeding aids (a specific pillow, breast pump, etc) then you are welcome to bring that along. Comfy clothes that allow easy access to the breast are encouraged.
