Finding A Certified Lactation Near You – In Malvern, PA

If you are a new mother and have questions about nursing or breastfeeding, your primary care physician or pediatrician might refer you to a lactation consultant (an LC).

designation is IBCLC. Lactation consultants can be hospital based or they can be in private practice.

Breastfeeding Home Visits and Office Visits

In some cases, hospitals will allow new mothers to return to see hospital based Lactation Consultants but in many cases, it may be necessary or desirable to see a

private practice LC.  Lactation Consultants in private practice will either have in office visits where you take your baby to the office and/or provide home visits where a

LC will come to your home and conduct an examination and consultation including weighing the baby before and after feeding, assessment of the baby’s suck

and will work with  you to answer all of your nursing questions and to help you to reach your personal breastfeeding goals.

Lactation consultations are often covered by insurance so be sure to have the lactation consultant provide you with the claim forms needed
