Lactation Consultant, IBCLC, Spanish Speaking, Breastfeeding Help/ Bodyfeeding

Welcome. 

This is your Journey. Let it be peaceful.

Hi, I am Kassi.
 I can't wait to work with you! 

Let's talk about what baby feeding might feel like...

βœ… Hard work that is also very rewarding?  Check.
βœ… Physically and emotionally exhausting?  Often.
βœ… Stressful and anxiety producing? Sometimes... but it doesn't have to be that way  

I'll help YOU find peace and confidence on YOUR feeding journey by:  

-Providing you lactation support from pregnancy though toddlerhood
-Meeting during pregnancy to discuss your feeding goals and identify possible challenges.
-Creating a pumping & baby feeding  plan that works for YOU
-Optimizing your milk supply
-Processing your worries and negative emotions, so you can get back to enjoying your baby        

So that you never feel stuck or alone.  

You deserve a more peaceful baby feeding experience filled with confidence and happy baby snuggles.

3 ways to pay

1. HSA/FSA card
2. Insurance covered visits: see below
3. Out of pocket: For those not covered, I can give you a superbill to submit for possible reimbursement from your insurance.

Insurance Coverage?

Lactation consults should be covered by insurance, but each plan varies.

If insurance reimbursement is important to you, please contact your insurance company in advance to confirm coverage for lactation services.

Apply for free virtual or in home visits though insurance using this link:  https://go.lactationnetwork.com/KassiReyes

(Bluecross, Cigna, Multiplan, Humana members very likely to be covered. United: In Person Only. Find out for sure at link above)

I partner with The Lactation Network (TLN), a company that handles insurance billing for lactation consultants. They bill your insurance and use a portion of what they receive to pay me. For clients with insurance please click here and you should hear back from TLN within approximately one day with confirmation of coverage.   If you choose not to use The Lactation Network, or your insurance carrier does not work with with them, payment is due in full at the time of service. I will provide you with a specialized invoice (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance carrier to request reimbursement. Insurance coverage is not guaranteed with this method, and I do not refund fees based on insurance companies refusing to reimburse.   I accept Venmo, Cash, Checks, FSA/HSA payments, & some major credit cards.

Note that I do not bill insurance directly.
