DayOne Baby is proud to offer highly experienced, knowledgeable, reassuring lactation consultants, Monday-Saturday.
At DayOne Baby, we know that as much as being a new mother brings light, joy, and love into your life, it can also bring its own set of difficulties and challenges – and we're here to help. Our new parenting classes are geared towards helping you navigate the world of new motherhood, and we've fostered a nurturing, supportive community of new parents that can trust and rely on each other. And when it comes to breastfeeding, we're proud to staff a team of experienced, knowledgeable, and empathetic lactation consultants to help you achieve a healthy and loving routine of breastfeeding with your baby.
Our mission is to help you achieve a breastfeeding routine that nurtures both the health of your little one as well as the health of your relationship. Our team of Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultants are experienced, respected professionals in their professional community and for hundreds of families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. They fuse proven, evidence-based care with a unique sense of compassion and non-judgmental support for every mother they work with, and when you work with a lactation consultant at DayOne Baby, you'll benefit from our entire community of specialists and new parents.
Our lactation consultants are experts in their field, and they can help you through a wide variety of issues including:
International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants are like the true elite of lactation professionals - they're recognized throughout the world as possessing the only form of standardized, board-certified, international lactation credential available.
If possible, it's best to feed your baby about an hour before your appointment - this ensures that they won't be too full to eat, but also won't be too hungry, which may make them frantic. If you've been pumping, feel free to bring your pump and equipment with you, as your consultant can help with your technique and schedule. If you have them, also bring any records related to feedings and numbers of diapers per day.
Our Lactation Consultations run at $185 for the initial consultation, which will give you a detailed action plan and your own personal consultant to reach out to for support by phone or email. If you and your consultant decide that more time is necessary, follow up consultations are $135. We'll charge you when you book your appointment, and the fee is fully refundable as long as you cancel by the end of the business day before your appointment. If you have to cancel after that, we charge a $50 cancellation fee.
Insurance companies handle lactation consultations differently, but some companies may reimburse you for consultations. We require fees to be paid at the time of service, but we can provide you with an insurance "superbill" and are happy to help you obtain reimbursement through your insurance.
As always, we're here to help you if you have any questions about lactation, consultations, or being a new parent in general. Feel free to call us at (415) 813-1931 for our San Francisco location, and if you'd like to find out about our classes, you can check out our class offerings or schedule . We can't wait to hear from you, and we're so excited to help you continue the journey of parenthood!
