As the visit ends up, they will leave you with a customized plan for the best outcome.

Many moms prefer to have Atlanta Lactation come to their home for a few reasons. The biggest being the comfort level. As a new mom, being able to nurse your baby and get assistance in the spot you will normally feed them can be super beneficial. Many moms also find this easier than leaving the house with their new little baby.

What to Expect

When you are ready to make an appointment with Atlanta Lactation, you can schedule through their online portal. It will start with asking a few questions about your insurance. If you have Lactation Network, Aetna or Humana, you can click the button for either in home or office visits. If you do not have one of those insurances, you will select self-pay home or self-pay office.

Their system will prompt you to select if you are there for an initial or follow up visit. Immediate on the screen, you will be able to see their availability. Through following the prompt and filling out all of the questions, you will be all booked for your appointment!

 To be best prepared for your session, Atlanta Lactation has a few requests. They request you start a full feed for baby two hours prior to the appointment and should be completed 90 minutes before the start of your appointment. They also ask that you bring a few things with you: a written log of the past 24 hours (include diapers, pumping and results, feed times and length, etc), a filled bottle with expressed milk or formula if baby won’t latch, all of the tools you are currently using for breastfeeding as well as your pump and all of its accessories.  If you have a visit in your home, they ask that you still have these items prepared and ready when they arrive.
