What do you love most about this line of work?

I enjoy watching the journey of the breastfeeding family and the commitment that parents have to give their baby the best start in life. There are special qualities about a breastfeeding family— how they overcome obstacles, how they achieve their goals, how they mature as parents based on their decision to breastfeed in our bottle feeding culture. They are my heroes!

What do new parents need to be reminded of when they encounter breastfeeding challenges?
I like to remind new parents that the best way to avoid feeling like a failure is to ask for help.

How much does a coaching session cost?
Freeman Lactation Services offer both office visits and home visits. Please contact us for current fees. We can also determine if your insurance covers the lactation consultation.

Will you be available for follow-up visits or phone calls?
Yes! Easily available, ongoing, personalized follow up is the hallmark of working with an independent Lactation Consultant. Most breastfeeding concerns are cleared up in one or two visits. Phone calls and emails are always free and continue as long as you need the support.

Will my insurance cover your services?
Insurance coverage varies with each plan. Contact your HR department or customer service at your health insurance company to ask about the coverage for a lactation visit.
