Due to COVID-19 physical distancing requirements, I am only doing virtual lactation consults at this time. Includes complementary sanitized scale drop off and pick up in the Bellingham area. I am in network with Aetna and subsidiaries like Meritain, who cover telehealth. For other insurance plans, please check with your insurance company to see if they reimburse for telehealth. If you have Aetna please call or use the contact form to make an appointment instead of using the online scheduler.
