Aetna allows for 6 consults free of cost sharing (no copays / no coinsurance.) Consults can include a prenatal breastfeeding class, home visits with infant weigh-ins, teach different hold techniques & other breastfeeding education for 6 weeks. We will reassure you when nursing is going well or notify you if anything needs changed before your milk supply is impacted. Let us know if you would like to setup a 6 week appointment contract to guide you through your nursing journey.
Please complete an Aetna Insurance Registration form HERE prior to consultation. Mother & Infant insurance must be verified prior to consult.
**NOTE** We are only able to accept Aetna Members ID numbers that begin with "W" at this time (Example: W123456789)
