Breastfeeding Success is proud to offer lactation consultation visits at two area locations.

South Clinic

Breastfeeding Success Company’s South Austin lactation clinic is located at 111 Ramble Lane, Suite#115.
If you are entering from Congress Ave we are in the 3rd building. The clinic is comfortable, quiet, clean, and inviting. Clinic visits usually take about 1-1.5 hours. Please arrive with a hungry baby and any breastfeeding equipment you are regularly using. Clinic visit fees are lower than home visit fees.

Central Clinic

Breastfeeding Success Company’s Central/North Austin lactation clinic is located at 1201 West 38th Street (Seton Medical Center) on the 8th floor in room 815. Valet parking is validated at the time of appointment. Please feel welcome to ask a volunteer for directions to the north elevator and go to the 8th floor. Once off the elevator make a right then a left at the hallway. We are located at the end of the hallway last door on the right.

Services:

In-Clinic Lactation Consultation:

Clinic lactation consultations are scheduled for approximately 1-1.5 hours. We ask that your baby is hungry upon your arrival so that we may assess an entire nursing session. Babies are weighed before and after feeding to appropriately document intake. The goal is to help resolve issues associated with breastfeeding and to create a plan that works for each family to meet their breastfeeding goals. All care plans include follow-up care either by phone or in-person contact. Follow-up appointments usually take 1 hour and will be scheduled after initial appointment.

In-Home Lactation Consultation Visits:

BFS sees clients in their homes based upon staff availability. Travel fees apply for both in and out of network visits. Lactation home consultations take between 1-1.5 hours. We ask that your baby is hungry upon our arrival so that we may assess an entire nursing session. Babies are weighed before and after feeding to appropriately document intake. The goal is to help resolve issues associated with breastfeeding and to create a plan that works for each family to meet their breastfeeding goals. All care plans include follow-up care either by phone or in-person contact. In-home follow-up appointments usually take 1 hour and will be scheduled after initial appointment.

Phone Consultations:

Phone consultations are available for those times when a quick check-in will suffice. The first 15-minutes are free. If additional consultation is needed we will recommend an in person visit.

Induced Lactation:

Inducing lactation and re-lactating require information and support. Our Lactation consultants specialize in sharing the most current research in this rapidly growing approach. This service allows for one in-person consultation prior to starting therapy and up to three, 15-minute follow-up phone calls to track your progress and further tailor therapy appropriately to meet your goals.

Have any of the in-network plans listed above?
Breastfeeding Success Company is your in-network provider.  Your lactation consultation will be free of charge or may have a small co-pay. A travel fee is assessed for all home visits.

Other insurance?
Many patients are being reimbursed by their health insurance companies for private lactation consultations. The Breastfeeding Success Company provides the appropriate and most up-to-date reimbursement forms at each consult so that you can submit for reimbursement.  We also can submit claims for you through our billing company.
