Breastfeeding Lactation Consultants in Southeast Michigan

New moms who need lactation advice can turn to a certified breastfeeding lactation consultant in Oakland, Macomb, Wayne and Washtenaw counties for help.

Whether you’re learning about lactation or you need support with latching, pumping or other breastfeeding challenges, help is here.

These southeast Michigan resources – some of whom are International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) – offer a variety of pre- and postnatal classes and consultations. They can answer questions and offer guidance to help your family have a positive breastfeeding experience.

Note: Fees for lactation consultants vary. If you give birth at a hospital, sometimes these services are included. Based on our own sampling, local independent options can span $80-$135 for an initial consultation (less for follow-ups); some offer other services and classes in the $25-$50 range.

Check ahead for current rates and offerings, including whether consultants offer services in-home, in-office or both.
