If you are approved for care under The Lactation Network there will be no copays and a minimum of 6 visits will be covered. Patients paying cash will pay $250 for an initial home visit, $200 for a follow up and $125 for a telemedicine visit. Prior to a home visit, families fill out an intake form with their goals and priorities. Most visits entail a weighted feed where we can evaluate the baby's milk transfer and strategize about parent and infants' comfort.
