*My primary goal is to help mothers breastfeed. If for any reason, payment of my full fees is not possible, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss possible alternative arrangements.


I recommend calling your insurance company ahead of time to find out if they will reimburse you for lactation services. Many do. I will provide you with all necessary billing codes for reimburcement during our visit. 

I am currently an in-network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield VT. If you are a member, all home visits will be fully covered. I will bill BCBS directly for services so you will not be responsible for my fees out-of-pocket.

"My son was born at 34 weeks and was transferred to a different hospital almost immediately after his birth. I was separated from him for almost 24 hours. The next day I was finally able to see my son. He was not able to latch well and had a poor suck swallow reflex. I saw multiple lactation consultants during our stay but the only person who actually helped me was Ariel. She taught me latching techniques along with how to hold him. Once we were home Ariel taught me ways to work through nipple confusion, supported me though mastitis and supply issues. She was always a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. I truly believe the only reason we made it nursing was because of Ariel." 

"Thanks so much for everything...We owe so much to you and thank you for holding my hand through the rough recovery"
