Stork and Cradle's Lactation Practice Accepts Insurance for Breastfeeding Mothers

Share Article

Insurance payments are a great relief for breastfeeding mothers. The days of out-of-pocket lactation consultant fees are disappearing.

Just in time for World Breastfeeding Month in August, Stork and Cradle announces today its principal instructor and founder, Tamara Hawkins is accepting medical insurance for her lactation practice. Tamara Hawkins is a practicing Family Nurse Practitioner and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant with over 16 years experience helping mothers during their rites of passage of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.

Since the Affordable Care Act went into effect in August 2012 mandating insurance coverage of lactation support and related preventative care, breastfeeding mothers have been scrambling to find specialty trained lactation consultants who are in-network with insurance companies.

“Advancing health for mothers and babies with improved breastfeeding outcomes is my goal,” said Tamara Hawkins. “Being able to accept insurance means a mother can afford to receive multiple visits and ensure all breastfeeding issues are addressed and solved.”

Tamara Hawkins is accepting Aetna, United Healthcare, Oxford and The Empire Plan insurances. Stork and Cradle hopes to bring forth a new generation of mothers that will receive appropriate assessments, non-judgmental advice and follow-up care.
