Many pediatric practices, both locally and across the United States, are beginning to offer in-house lactation assistance. Why refer your patients on when you can provide this valuable service in your office? Atlanta Breastfeeding Consultants is the first Atlanta-based company placing internationally board certified lactation consultants (IBLCs) in the medical office setting. You schedule the patients; we provide a qualified, trained, insured professional ready to partner with you to provide the best care and increase patient satisfaction.
Our LCs support all aspects of the breastfeeding relationship between mother and baby, freeing up physician and nursing time for other patient care issues. We work with your physicians and nurses during well and follow-up visits to ensure the most comprehensive diagnosis of feeding-related issues. We recommend personalized treatment options and plans for each mother and baby pair in conjunction with your policies and evidence-based practice. Our LCs are trained in coding, accurate medical records keeping and are insured up to $1,000,000/6,000,000.
In order to ensure the best possible outcomes and best meet the needs in your practice, you may choose from a menu of services which includes:
o One, two or three sessions per week of in-office patient lactation consults during well and follow-up visits (this can include telephone assistance);
o Monthly or weekly Breastfeeding Classes for the pregnant woman or new mothers at your office location;
o Monthly or Weekly Breastfeeding Support Group meetings at your office location;
o Out-of-office telephone support with difficult or complex cases;
o Breast Pump sales and training on proper fit and use for your patients; and
o Training and education for you and your staff on up-to-date research and best practices in lactation.
We are ready to discuss the needs of your individual practice, whether it be pediatrics, obstetrics, family practice or chiropractic; solo or group practice.
