An appointment with a lactation consultant costs way less than the option of NOT breastfeeding! All mothers, regardless of income, should have access to quality lactation care. Quality lactation support is far less expensive than the option of not breastfeeding.  Contact us, letting us know how we can support you, for specific pricing.

Sometimes alternative payment options (payment plans for families in need) are available or you may consider attending the free-of-charge community service support groups or Susan's groups.
