Our Services & Fees

Lowcountry Lactation Station offers the following services

Pre-natal Visit

Private consultation to help get breastfeeding off to the best start, which is especially important in the first few days after giving birth.  If you are planning a hospital birth, it is important to understand hospital routines that may interfere with breastfeeding success and know what you need to do to establish your supply.

It is suggested to plan this visit by 35 weeks gestation.

Cost: $100.00         

In-Home Breastfeeding Consultation

In this initial consultation, consultant will take a complete maternal and infant health history, perform physical assessments of the baby and of the mother’s breasts, and observe a breastfeeding session.  The baby is weighed before and after the feeding using a sensitive digital scale to assess breast milk intake.

A typical consult takes 2 hours. A written plan of care is provided to each family at the time of the first consultation.  To maintain continuity of care a comprehensive report is sent to your pediatrician and obstetrician of choice. The lactation consultant will follow up with you within 48-72 hours after the visit. Follow up assistance by phone or text is provided at any time.

If additional issues or questions cannot be addressed by phone, a follow-up consultation should be recommended.  Aetna insurance covers up to 6 visits. The Lactation Network works with PPO’s, (Preferred Provider) Organizations to approve of 6 visits at no cost to the family. Tricare  select and prime also provides 6 visits

If your home destination is greater than 25 miles from West Ashley than there is an additional $20.00 fee.

Cost:  200.00         

Follow-Up Consultation

Many breastfeeding issues can be resolved in one visit, but sometimes additional hands-on help and continued assessment is needed to fully meet your breastfeeding goals.  Other times, new issues arise in the breastfeeding relationship, and an additional visit can help keep mothers and babies on track.

In this visit, for mothers who have already had a comprehensive consultation, we will reassess infant feeding and make necessary adjustments to the plan of care.

Cost: $150.00              

Infant Massage

Offered individually or with 2 families. Learn how to professionally massage your infant and all the reasons you would want to. It is a wonderful way to open up the world of communication between you and your baby before your baby walks and talks.

Classes can start when infant is 6 weeks of age. You can share this class with a friend or relative to lower your cost for the class.
