How can your lactation specialist near me help my baby?

A lactation specialist is a highly trained healthcare professional who can provide valuable support and guidance to both you and your baby during the breastfeeding journey. Here's how a lactation specialist can help:

  • Assisting with latch: One of the most important aspects of successful breastfeeding is ensuring a proper latch. A lactation specialist can help you and your baby find a comfortable and effective latch technique, which can promote efficient milk transfer and prevent nipple pain or damage.
  • Addressing breastfeeding challenges: Breastfeeding may come with its own set of challenges, such as low milk supply, engorgement, or difficulties with positioning. A lactation specialist can offer practical solutions and strategies to overcome these challenges, helping you establish and maintain a successful breastfeeding relationship.
  • Providing education and guidance: Lactation specialists are knowledgeable in all aspects of breastfeeding. They can educate you about breastfeeding techniques, milk production, and baby's feeding cues. They can also provide guidance on topics like pumping, storing breast milk, and introducing solid foods when the time comes.
  • Supporting special circumstances: If you and your baby have special circumstances that could impact breastfeeding, such as premature birth, medical conditions, or multiples, a lactation specialist can provide specialized care and tailored advice to meet your unique needs.
  • Emotional support: Breastfeeding can sometimes be an emotional journey, and a lactation specialist understands this. They can provide empathetic support, answer your questions, and help alleviate any concerns or anxieties you may have.

Remember, a lactation specialist is there to support you and your baby's breastfeeding goals. Their expertise and guidance can make a significant difference in your breastfeeding experience, helping you create a nurturing and fulfilling bond with your little one.

Is my new baby automatically added to my insurance?

Congratulations on the arrival of your new baby! In Pennsylvania, there are provisions in place to ensure that your newborn receives health insurance coverage.

If you are eligible for and currently receiving Medical Assistance (MA) on the date of your baby's birth, your newborn will automatically receive MA coverage for one year. This means that your baby will have access to medical assistance and necessary healthcare services during that time.

For private health insurance plans, as a general rule, you will typically need to add your baby to your insurance within 30 to 60 days after their birth. It's important to contact your insurance provider and notify them about your new addition to ensure that your baby is properly covered.
