Lactation Services

Lactation support at Lifecycle begins with the first prenatal appointment and continues throughout pregnancy and during postpartum care. We take great pride in helping new parents with breastfeeding/chestfeeding, especially given the well-established medical benefits of human milk.

 
“I was encouraged by my lactation consultant. She gave me options and support and celebrated my journey with me. ”
 

Individual Lactation Services

We provide expertise and support to new parents for many lactation issues, including excess or low milk supply, latch issues, and pumping issues. In-person and telehealth options are available for lactation consultations. Services are available to any family, regardless of where they had their pregnancy care.

Call us today at 610.525.6086 to schedule an appointment with one of our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs).

Lactation Support Groups

Our Lactation Support Groups provide lactating parents a forum to discuss the joys and challenges of breastfeeding/chestfeeding a baby. Participants provide and receive encouragement and inspiration as they share, ask questions, solicit advice, and offer suggestions. Our lactation professionals are on hand to provide support and guidance.

Mid-Atlantic Mother’s Milk Bank Depot

In August 2018, we began accepting human milk donations through our Mid-Atlantic Mothers Milk Bank Milk Depot. The lifesaving milk that is donated via our depot goes to help medically vulnerable infants. If you have milk to share and are interested in becoming a donor, email donate@midatlanticmilkbank.org to set up a donor screening interview.

FAQs

Do you accept insurance for Lactation Cosnultations?

Yes! We accept most major insurance providers. Co-pays may apply. If you have specific questions about what your insurance covers, call us at 610.525.6086 or reach out to your insurance plan’s member services department.

Do I need to register for the Lactation Support Groups?

There is no need to register ahead of time. To join us virtually, email Nikki at ngraham@lifecyclewomancare.org for the Zoom login info.

Do you diagnose tongue and lip ties?

All of our IBCLCs are trained to assess for tongue and lip ties, and will provide evidence-based information and support to families, helping them understand how this will impact their infant feeding goals.

Do you do in-home lactation consultations?

No, but we offer telehealth as an option when indicated. Most of the time, it is better for our team of IBCLCs to see clients and their babies in the office so a complete assessment that includes weighing the baby, assessing latch and transfer of milk, and examination of baby’s oral cavity can take place.
