New Hampshire Lactation Consulting
Connecting families with board certified lactation and infant feeding support all over New Hampshire
New Hampshire Lactation Consulting is a collaboration between Private Practice International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC's) in New Hampshire. A Private Practice IBCLC is a recognized healthcare professional who practices independently within the community, rather than at a hospital or doctors office. We are available to support families outside of a traditional medical setting, while still functioning as an integral member of the healthcare team. Our diverse experiences and heightened level of autonomy allow us to provide a more wholistic approach to care. Our passion is rooted in lactation but our expertise spans a much wider range of services. We recognize that each family has different feeding and childrearing goals, and we are here to help with whatever those goals may be. To locate support near you, browse our providers below! Insurance coverage is available.

WHAT IS TLN?
The Lactation Network, also known as TLN, is a durable medical supplier who bills insurance for Lactation Consultants. Lactation Consultants contracted with TLN are currently able to accept many United, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, Cigna, Unicare, and VA CCN plans, as well as many PPO subsidiaries of these plans, and also plans from carriers with a PNOA or Multiplan logo on the back of the card. Coverage may be under either the lactating parent OR the baby- it does not have to be both. Each IBCLC has a unique link for parents to use to check coverage. Please visit your IBCLCs website to locate their link, or use this link to be connected with the first available consultant.
If you are not insured by a TLN covered insurance plan know that you may still be eligible for reimbursement for services rendered by an IBCLC.
Not all plans provide reimbursement, but many do. All of our providers offer superbills for claim submission.
Some of our providers are in-network with non-TLN insurance carriers, such as Aetna.
You can read about the law governing health insurance coverage here.
Not all lactation professionals are board certified providers. Lots are just helpers for when things are generally going well!
Unfortunately, anybody can call themselves a Lactation Consultant, so it is important to ask if they are IBCLC certified. All of our providers are.
Why see an IBCLC, and not a different type of "Lactation Consultant" if you are having a problem? ...Because IBCLC's are the only lactation professional with the scope of practice that allows them to be recognized as an allied health professional.
