One-on-One Consultations

There are many reasons to seek assistance with breastfeeding, pumping, or both.  A one-on-one consultation is ideal for getting help with whatever challenges you are facing.  Dubuque-area consultations are held at Statera Integrated Health and Wellness or in your home (additional fee for home visits). Wisconsin or Illinois consultations can be done in your home or another location, such as the local library or your doctors office.

Up to 2-hour initial visit   $140

1-hour Follow-up visit      $75

Includes follow up calls while we are working together.

Back to Work and Pumping Assistance

Are you getting ready to go back to work and would like help making a plan to make the transition easier?  Would you like to learn how to use your pump or check to make sure you are using it correctly?  You will leave this visit knowing how to approach your employer, have a plan for pumping and feeding, breastfeeding at home with your baby and much more!

1-hour visit     $75

Paying for Lactation Support

Having a baby is expensive!  You may want to reach out for breastfeeding help but feel like you can't afford to do so.  I'd like to help with that!  Did you know that lactation support is covered by most insurance plans?  I encourage you to call your insurance company and verify that they offer lactation coverage and what they specifically cover.  

When you see me for an appointment in Lancaster, Platteville, Dubuque, Galena, or anywhere in the tri-state area, you will pay me directly with cash or a check.  I will give you a superbill for you to turn into your insurance for reimbursement.  

If your insurance doesn't cover breastfeeding support or covers very little, and you feel like you can't afford my fee, please get in touch so we can discuss your options.  One item to consider is the cost of lactation support is far less than purchasing one year's worth of formula.  You and baby are worth it!
