Prenatal Breastfeeding Classes
We strongly recommend a prenatal breastfeeding class for families to get nursing off to a great start. Call our pediatric office to reserve seats in a 1 hour “How To Breastfeed” class taught by Dr. Anderson. Cost is $40 per couple.
Classes occur one Tuesday each month from 7:30pm-8:30pm contact our office to schedule.
Lactation Consultations: What to Expect
The initial lactation visit takes about 1 hour. Follow up visits are scheduled according to how baby is progressing and take about 30 min. Cost is sometimes a concern. Your insurance may cover lactation counseling but those insurance codes are used to bill for care of mothers. Dr. Anderson is a pediatrician and focuses on the care of the baby, while empowering the mother to provide milk for her bay. Charges are submitted to insurance as an office visit for your child., and thus your insurance may apply a copay or the charges may go to tour baby’s deductible. As a physician, Dr. Anderson will monitor your baby’s health status while breastfeeding, and also address critical issues such as jaundice, fussiness, infections and any other medical concern for which you would need to come here anyway. At appropriate times, Dr. Anderson can perform the services of the newborn well check-up and/or 2 week well check-up. This will provide a one stop shop for your baby’s care and keep your baby’s care well coordinate with your pediatrician at LPG.
