Video Visit - Breastfeeding Support

Mother and baby receiving breastfeeding support

Note: The breastfeeding video visit benefit is not yet available to Medicare Advantage plan members.

If you are having difficulties with breastfeeding or just need some advice, lactation services through MilkOnTap’s network of International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) can help. The IBCLCLs are familiar with many of the common issues new mothers face and can be a valuable resource.

MilkOnTap’s IBCLCs can coach you on:

  • Latching issues
  • Milk supply
  • Breast tenderness
  • Persistently hungry baby
  • Returning to work
  • Pumping
  • Plugged milk ducts
  • Mastitis
  • Sore nipples
  • Thrush
  • Oversupply
  • Weaning
Lactation Consultations are covered as a no cost preventive service for women.
The first visit will last about 50 minutes and follow-up visits will be about 25 minutes. If you have questions and need some help, don’t wait. Schedule a Video Visit and talk to an IBCLC today to get the help you need.
