What our clients say about working with us
Amazing help! Better than anything I was able to get locally or even at my providers office.
Gina was awesome. I appreciate her giving me such great advice and making me feel like I am doing great. I know I will be reaching out again for future pregnancies.
The only way the experience could be better is if Gina were local & we could meet in person. That said, virtual care has far surpassed my expectations and been so helpful. Gina is very knowledgeable and a talented communicator. We are seeing improvement in feeding after only 2 short sessions.
We are grateful for the care Holistic Lactation is providing. The work has connected the dots on many issues we have been experiencing related to nursing and digestion.
Ready to leave the struggle behind and finally access the support you’ve longed for from the start?
When your baby was born, it came with a wake up call: breastfeeding is natural, but it’s not always easy.
Think about the preparations we make for our little ones – attending birth classes, creating baby registries – all in pursuit of giving them the best start and ensuring their well-being.
Your breastfeeding journey deserves the same level of attention.
It should be a path that strengthens your maternal confidence, not one that chips away at it. This is where our specialized lactation support comes into play – as clinicians with extensive experience, we are dedicated to addressing and resolving breastfeeding challenges.
Booking an appointment with us is the logical next step toward achieving your breastfeeding goals with confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does insurance cover my appointments with you?
Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, lactation care is now covered by most insurance plans. Telehealth appointments are eligible for coverage. To find out what your plan will cover specifically, contact your insurance company directly and ask about your lactation benefits, as well as coverage for out-of-network providers.
Do you offer in-person appointments?
We only offer telehealth appointments. Our clients find that we are able to do everything we’d normally do if we were face-to-face except weigh your baby. We have specialized in virtual care since way before the pandemic and will guide you on the best ways to utilize video before & during our appointment with you.
How do video appointments work?
We provide instructions on sending us any relevant photos and videos before your appointment, as well as completing our intake forms so we have a lot of information by the time we meet. You can use your smartphone, tablet or computer to connect for your appointment. It’s very helpful to have another person nearby to assist with holding the camera. It’s also a good idea to have a flashlight on hand if there’s a possibility we will conduct an oral exam of your baby.
What if I can’t book an appointment with the IBCLC I wanted?
We work as a team at Holistic Lactation. This means when you work with one of our lactation consultants, you work with all of our lactation consultants. Our entire team has experience teaching other lactation professionals, plus decades of collective experience as IBCLCs. This means you get the benefit of multiple lactation consultants when you become a client.
What our clients say about working with us
I’ve spoken with two other LCs over the past 12 weeks and neither of them gave me as much education or support as Cait did. I am so thankful for the help and am so encouraged moving forward
Cait helped me save my breastfeeding journey. I have low milk supply and my kiddo was born with oral ties.
Your team made me feel supported more than any other resource out there. Thank you!
Cait was so helpful! My only wish was that my consultation was longer. She was able to identify my daughters lip and tongue tie, and provide recommendations for a frenectomy, as well as prepare for the recovery once the ties are fixed. I’d recommend her to any mom!
Cait was really kind. As you know being in the situation some women are in, it’s quite distressing. The feelings of shame, isolation, guilt, overwhelm are very powerful. With the kindness and empathy Cait showed me and her expertise in creating a concrete plan, it felt like the warm hug I’ve been needing to feel like it’s going to be okay and that I’m not alone in getting things back on track. For that I’m very grateful.
