Private Lactation Consultations

Manhattan Birth has two International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) who do private lactation consultations in your home or in our office.

If you are looking for a Lactation Support Group, visit our Lactation & Feeding Clinic.

During your visit, our lactation consultants will take a full history and complete a full feeding assessment, including evaluating your anatomy, your baby's suck, and assessing milk transfer by weighing your baby before and after feeding.  You will work together on achieving an optimal and comfortable latch, and the IBCLC will work with you to create a written feeding plan for you and your baby going forward. 

We do not accept insurance, but will give you a receipt after your visit with detailed medical coding for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.  Pricing ranges from $250-$300 depending on location. 

Tanya Wills, CNM, IBCLC - As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Certified Nurse-Midwife, Tanya Wills assists new families who are having lactation and feeding problems. Visits with Tanya may take place in your home or in her home office on the Upper West Side, depending on availability. 

Tanya received her initial training from Healthy Children's Center for Breastfeeding in human lactation support including assessing the latching and feeding process, providing corrective interventions, counseling new parents, and understanding and applying knowledge of milk production in commonly encountered situations.

While attending the Yale University School of Nursing, Tanya completed her training to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) with Julie Bouchet-Horwitz at Hudson Valley Breastfeeding, where she saw more complicated cases including twins, premature babies, tongue tie, and other feeding problems.  As a Certified Nurse-Midwife licensed in New York and New Jersey,  in addition to helping with more natural solutions, Tanya can also prescribe medications if you have an infection or other health problem related to nursing.
