We are currently offering in home consults, virtual consults, & in office consults in Nine Short Months Birth Center. Our schedule is dependent on our consultants' health and comfort level.
All our IBCLCs are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
We have three steps before a virtual consult can be scheduled. There is a one time fee of $100 for virtual consults paid out of pocket which includes follow ups via phone and email. Some insurances are billing for virtual consults.
While all our IBCLCs and some of our clients have been fortunate enough to receive the COVID vaccine, we are still taking precautions and following the CDC guidelines. Because we come to your home, we understand you may be comfortable not wearing a mask. Some of our consultants have small children in their homes and request you continue to wear masks and they will be too. Other consultants have older children who have been fully vaccinated and feel comfortable without masks. No matter your situation, the IBCLC working with you will let you know her protocol before the visit.
As always, if anyone in your family has been ill, we will ask to cancel your appointment. We work with fresh babies and will not put any family at risk of exposure.
Please know we are here to support your breastfeeding needs during this global pandemic. We are available via HIPPA compliant platforms now and before the pandemic.
