A board certified lactation consultant providing breastfeeding support in office or in the comfort of your own home.


Insurance Coverage

Lactation Consultants of East Texas partners with a billing agency called "The Lactation Network". They can verify insurance benefits and preapprove office or in home lactation visits for clients with:

Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO

Anthem PPO

Cigna PPO

If you have Aetna insurance, I am in network with them and can check your benefits before scheduling. Please call ahead to verify (903) 521-3248​

For insurance companies not listed above, I will provide a medical receipt after our appointment for you to submit for reimbursement. Many insurance companies do reimburse for lactation services.

Remember, this is an investment for yourself and your baby. Don't let finances be a reason you don't seek professional help and support. If necessary, I can set up a payment plan.



This is an exciting and busy time for you and your family as you welcome your new little one in to the world. With the right support and knowledge, you can be confident in and more satisfied with your breastfeeding experience. Home, office or virtual consultations are available. If you live outside the service area a travel fee may be applied.
