The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing as much as possible to slow the spread.
Lactation Link IBCLCs are performing in-person consults in areas where such care is permitted and have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. In addition, we require you to electronically sign and agree to a waiver at the time of booking, as well as work towards reducing transmission by wearing a mask if you have one, not having more people present during the consult than is necessary, and monitoring your symptoms to ensure you and all who live in your home are symptom-free at your consult time, as well as for at least 72 hours prior. Your lactation consultant will contact you prior to your consult to ask about potential symptoms and may take your temperature upon arrival.
Healthcare Spending Account Eligible: All consults can be paid for with a healthcare spending account or flex spending account.
Please note that for latch issues, nipple pain, and weight gain issues with a young baby, in person consults are best where available.
If you are booking an appointment for someone else, please put the MOTHER'S name, address, phone, & email in the appropriate fields so we can contact her directly about her appointment. You can put "booked by......" in the notes section to tell us your name.
Lactation Link understands that plans can change, especially when you have children (we’ve got ‘em too)! If you find that you need to cancel or reschedule your consultation, just give us a 12-hour heads up via email prior to your scheduled consultation appointment time. If you request to cancel or reschedule after this time or do not keep your appointment as scheduled, we are unable to process any refund of payment and no superbill for potential insurance reimbursement can be given.
