Consultations are charged at a flat rate, so we can focus on resolving breastfeeding and lactation challenges in a relaxed manner without worrying about time and money. See below for travel fees.

My goal is to address all concerns during our first visit and develop an individualized care plan that outlines the steps needed to resolve any challenges. Unlimited phone and email support is included for 30 days after an initial in-person consultation.

Sometimes follow-up phone consultation(s) or in-person follow-up visit(s) are needed to assess progress, update care plan, and keep feedings on track, depending on the complexity and needs of the family. Additional fees for follow-up services apply. (See description of services and fees outlined below.)

Initial and Comprehensive Consultation
Held in your home $195.00 (travel fees may apply).
Initial consult usually lasts 2 – 3 hours, depending on the complexity and the needs of the family.

Comprehensive initial consultations include a feeding evaluation including help with latch and positioning techniques, a pre- and post-feed weight to assess weight gain and determine milk intake, an evaluation for tongue-tie (tethered oral tissue) and structural issues* that contribute to breastfeeding and lactation difficulty, a plan of care specific to your situation, and referrals to appropriate care providers to help correct issues.

Twins or Higher Order Multiple Initial and Comprehensive Consultation
Held in your home $195.00 + $75.00 for each additional baby. (travel fees may apply)

Follow-up Consultation
Held in your home $145.00 (travel fees may apply).
Follow-up visit usually lasts up to 2 hours, depending on the complexity and the needs of the family.

Sometimes in-person follow-up visits are needed to keep breastfeeding and lactation on track, and will include feeding assessment, weight check, and adjustment to plan of care, as necessary.

Evaluation Only
Held in your home $100.00 (travel fees may apply).
Evaluation only usually lasts 1.5 hours, depending on the complexity and the needs of the family.

This consultation is an evaluation only for tongue-tie and structural issues** that contribute to breastfeeding and lactation difficulty. The evaluation also includes a care plan to protect your baby and your milk supply, referrals to appropriate care providers to help your situation and correct issues.

**NOTE:  This is not a consult to evaluate a baby’s latch, position, or breastfeeding skills.  If you need that help see above for the Comprehensive Initial Consultation option.

*Structural issues are muscular restrictions in the baby’s body that make it difficult for them to nurse well (or not at all in some cases), be calm and relaxed, or sleep well.

Antenatal/Prenatal Consultation
Held in your home $100.00 (travel fees may apply).
Antenatal/Prenatal consult usually lasts 1.5 hours, depending on the complexity and the needs of the family.

Antenatal/Prenatal consultations are helpful for first time parents, or parents with special concerns such as a prior history of low milk supply, re-lactation, induced lactation, or other specific needs. Includes a health history, discussion of potential barriers to breastfeeding or lactation (past and/or present), and an individualized care plan to help get breastfeeding and lactation off to a good start for your unique situation.

Phone Consultations – $90.00 per hour
In most situations, it is important to assess and observe at least one time in person, prior to scheduling a phone consultation. However, depending on the situation the lactation consultant may waive this requirement as needed. Call Jewel to schedule a single or multiple phone consultation(s). Fee for phone consultation(s) must be paid in advance.

15 minutes: $25
30 minutes: $45
1 hour: $90

Phone and Email Lactation Support – $100.00 per month (30 days)
For established clients who are interested in ongoing lactation support (past the initial 30 days). This includes unlimited phone and email support for 30 days.

Travel Fees
Travel time is included up to 1 hour from my zip code (95826).  After that I charge a fee of $15 per each additional 15 minute increment of travel time.

Payment is due in full at time of service. Cash, HSA/FSA, Visa®, and Mastercard® are accepted. Depending on your insurance, a superbill may be provided upon request. Reimbursement is not implied nor guaranteed. Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to the appointment time.
