Why Get Help?
Breastfeeding doesn't always come naturally and can be very challenging in the early weeks. An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) can help you overcome these struggles and guide you on the road to reaching your breastfeeding goals. Here are a few reasons to seek assistance from an IBCLC:
- Milk supply concerns including low milk supply, oversupply, and weaning support.
- Breast and nipple pain, nipple trauma, mastitis, engorgement, plugged ducts, and thrush.
- Returning to work and pumping assistance including pump fit evaluation, making the most out of your breast pump, storage and handling of breast milk, pumping at work and your rights, pumping schedule for returning to work, tips on offering your baby a bottle.
- Special concerns such as adoption and induced lactation, lactation after infant loss, colic/reflux, food allergies/sensitivities, unresolved fussiness, prematurity, multiples and tandem nursing and medical/anatomical issues.
- Baby weight concerns such as slow weight gain, poor growth, and supplemental feeds.
- Latch concerns such as infant not latching, suck dysfunction, oral motor issues, tongue/lip tie, structural concerns and breast or bottle refusal.
- Older baby concerns such as the ABC's of starting solids, nutrition/growth concerns, sleep concerns, distraction, teething and weaning.
What Does IBCLC Mean?
The International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) certification is recognized as the Gold Standard for health professionals working with breastfeeding women. IBCLCs have passed a fully accredited examination set by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE). Prerequisites for the board examination include thousands of hours of clinical work and educational credits in Anatomy & Physiology, Cultural Diversity, Psychology & Counseling, Child Development, and Nutrition. All IBCLCs are required to provide evidence-based lactation support and adhere to the IBLCE’s Professional Standards.
***The Affordable Care Act of 2012 requires coverage of lactation consulting as a “Women’s Preventive Service.” Many health insurance companies reimburse for private lactation consultations. Please contact your insurance provider for specifics on your insurance coverage. My Pure Delivery is in-network with Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, Tricare, ARIA/Mediview, and BCBS. We are also able to bill Humana and Cigna directly. For all other insurance providers, a reimbursement form known as a superbill will be provided for you to submit to your health insurance provider.***

Diba was excellent and far exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend her!
Being a first time mom I thought breast feeding was going to be an easy process. When our baby girl was born we had trouble with low weight gain, milk supply and latch issues. Wanting to improve and continue breast feeding we decided to reach out to Diba and heard from her that same day. We set up an appointment for the following day and couldn't ask for a better experience! Diba was so sweet, attentive, understanding and very knowledgeable. She's been very supportive through it all and I can't thank her enough. I would recommend her 100% to any mom having any problems you won't regret it!
My pediatrician recommended Diba for lactation consultant services and I could not have been more pleased. When my son was born he already struggled with latch issues but then was hospitalized twice in his first 2 weeks of life for health issues. Needless to say this set us back on breastfeeding. When I reached out to Diba she promptly replied and made an appointment the very next day. This was exactly what a struggling mother needed. I've had two home visits and one group visit with her and each time I felt more at ease with my feeding plan. She has been incredibly supportive of our decision to pump and feed for him because we still unfortunately struggled with latch. No matter what are decisions have been she has offered solutions for us and been a cheerleader for our little guy as he went through his health issues. I highly recommend Diba to anybody who needs help and support with their children.
Diba is so amazing! I first went to her support groups after having my oldest son. We were really struggling with latch and supply, and I felt really alone. She gave me not only tools to help us correct our issues, but emotional support as well. Additionally I met other like-minded moms who I'm now great friends with! Now that I'm nursing my second son I'm still seeing Diba for help and it's been an even better experience! Thank you Diba, we love you!
Having a newbie is hard enough and when you want to EBF but are having issues or worries it is worth every penny to see an LC, especially one as attentive and helpful as Diba! She really takes the time to listen to your concerns and helps you mentally and physically in my opinion. I feel much better that after our consult with her and would recommend it to anyone considering!
