Consultations

Our lactation consultants are available to answer questions or discuss concerns about breastfeeding by phone and during one-on-one appointments or group discussion. To speak with our lactation consultants by phone, call 706.509.6555.

Most commercial insurance companies will pay 100 percent of the cost of an in-person lactation consultation with no deductibles or co-pays. There is generally no coverage limit on the number of visits, so moms can receive guidance as many times as needed.

Our Childbirth and Lactation Services office will file the necessary paperwork with commercial insurance companies for moms to receive this service. 

To make an appointment for a breastfeeding consultation, call 706.509.6548.

No-Cost or Low-Cost Breast Pumps

Some insurance companies provide breast pumps for new moms at no cost or minimal cost. Most insurance companies require a prescription from an OB/GYN. 

How to Receive Your Pump

  1. Call your insurance company to see if it will cover a breast pump. Ask if the company requires a prescription from your physician. If so, ask your OB/GYN for the breast pump prescription form. 
  2. Bring your prescription, if required, and your insurance card to Floyd Childbirth Education and Lactation Services to pick up your pump.

Each insurance plan is unique, and your specific benefits and eligibility must be verified. Verification does not guarantee payment by the insurance company.
