Service introduction

Both in-person and virtual visits for pregnant and breastfeeding parents are available. The visits include a detailed health and breastfeeding history, observation of a feeding, as well as pre and post weight checks. A full plan is developed and shared with the family, the mother and baby's HCP. Follow up visits available as needed and quick questions through our HIPAA compliant portal are encouraged.

BRC Insurance/Sliding Scale
The Breastfeeding Resource Center is a 501(c) (3). We do accept insurance and offer a sliding scale of payment for families whose insurance does not cover the cost of the visit. Call our office at 215-886-2433 to see if the BRC is in-network with your insurance and/or to see if you fall on the sliding scale. The BRC is dedicated to helping all families, regardless of income, receive lactation services.
