Nourish is moving to Denmark in spring of 2018, so we’re no longer accepting new clients. Existing clients may call for an appointment.
Nourish is now in-network with Aetna! That means most parents with Aetna are covered 100% for up to six prenatal and postnatal in-office appointments. Parents with other insurance still need to file for reimbursement themselves.*
Breastfeeding is natural, but we live in a culture where the last two generations mostly did not breastfeed at all. As a result, breastfeeding in the US often has a steeper learning curve than it does in some other cultures, and breastfeeding comfortably and successfully may not be intuitive for new parents. A prenatal appointment is a great way for you to receive personalized information on the best ways to develop a successful breastfeeding relationship from the first hour after birth. We will cover breast changes, birth choices, positioning, latch, milk transfer, normal newborn habits, and any special topics that fit your family’s needs.
Unless a mother desires otherwise, the prenatal appointment involves a brief physical exam of the mother’s breasts.
Prenatal appointments are especially useful for women with these situations:
- a history of low milk supply with a previous baby;
- a history of ongoing breastfeeding pain or difficulty with a previous baby;
- a history of having given up on breastfeeding earlier than desired with a previous baby;
- a history of any breast/nipple surgery;
- flat or inverted nipples;
- insulin-dependent diabetes;
- a history of PCOS and/or female-related infertility;
- pregnancy with twins or higher multiples;
- family members and/or partner who are uncomfortable with, who are uncertain about, or who lack knowledge about breastfeeding;
- and any other medical issues where a mother will be on maintenance medication during lactation.
Prenatal Appointment in Office: $90 (~1 hr.)
To book an appointment, call 585-310-1713.
I will provide you with a superbill that you may use to file a claim with your insurance company. Coverage varies, and the negotiation with the insurance company regarding this reimbursement is your responsibility. I am happy to accept FSA/HSA cards for payment.
