I am excited to announce that I have partnered with The Lactation Network.
You go to their website and fill out their form. You can get preapproved for 3 in-person or tele-health appointments with no cost sharing. Please put my name down as the Lactation consultant that referred you and go ahead and schedule an appt. Then we will both receive an email stating if you have been approved.
As of January 2021 the insurances that are most likely to go through are the following Blue Cross Blue And Blue Shield PPO including Florida Blue and Cigna PPO plans. If you have a different insurance than it may not get approved and you would need to schedule a self pay appointment or scroll down to see other resources in the Tampa Bay Area.
If you do self pay appointments than I accept FSA/ HSA cards, Credit Cards, and Cash. Prefer booking and payment on my website.
I am happy to work with your family to reach your feeding goals. If my availability or costs are prohibitive to you finding the help you need, here are some other resources in the Tampa Bay Area.
Breastfeeding is so important I want you to get the support you need even if it is not with me.
Free Services no Income Eligibility required
In Hillsborough County there is a program known as Baby Café which provides free breastfeeding support from IBCLCs. Currently it is operating a little differently due to COVID 19 and is only available in three locations by Appointment only. There are no income or residency requirements.

Income Based Services
Sadly I have recently been informed that all area WIC offices are doing very few if any in person services. For in person services with no income guidelines please see information for Baby Café. If you are eligible for WIC (Women Infant and Children Supplemental Nutrition Services) an income-based service, you have access to IBCLCs and Breastfeeding Peer Counselors at no cost.
