Q: What kind of therapy services do you offer?

A: We offer feeding therapy services for a broad range of needs. Check out the list on our Services page.

Q: What does it cost?

A: Our fees vary depending on the type and length of service provided. We offer a free 15-minute phone consultation and a 1-hour in-person consultation for $150.

Q: How do I know my baby needs feeding therapy?

A: If feeding your baby stresses you and baby, then it's time to get help.  Other signs that your baby may benefit from feeding therapy include refusal to latch/eat, baby experiencing weight loss, vomiting, choking, or having difficulty swallowing. Feeding should be an enjoyable social activity for baby and parent.  

Q: What insurance do you accept?

A: We do not accept insurance. However, we accept payment with HSA and FSA cards. We can also provide a superbill for you to present to your insurance for potential reimbursement.

Q:  Do I need a referral from my pediatrician's office?

A: No, you do not.  

Q: What is your new patient process?

A: Our new patient process begins with a free phone consultation to assess your needs and determine if therapy would be beneficial to you. From there, we'll work with you to schedule appointments and develop a treatment plan that works for your family.

Q: Are you an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant)?

A: No, I am not. I am a feeding therapist with specialized training to work with premature infants. I have attended many conferences and workshops, and I work with IBCLCs on a daily basis to support moms and babies with wholesome feeding experiences.

Q:  What are your thoughts on tongue and lip ties?  

A: They are real and can really impair baby and mom's breastfeeding journey. Moreover, getting an evaluation by a competent doctor who specializes in tongue and lip ties can instantly improve latch, nipple pain, and gas/colic-like symptoms associated with aerophagia (swallowing a lot of air).
