There are many options for private lactation support in Edmonton & Area.

Benefits:
- Home visits means you are receiving help in a comfortable environment
- Appointments often happen within a few days of inquiry
- Many offer text/email support after the visit for all those questions you meant to ask but forgot
- Providers may also offer other services that can be helpful to you and your family (prenatal classes, postpartum doula services, etc.)

Considerations:
- Variety of breastfeeding qualifications (See our FAQ page for more details)
- Most are unable to provide or coordinate prescriptions with your physician
- Cost. Check with your health plan to see whether they cover lactation consultants, including which designation they cover (ie. IBCLC)
