How do I know which lactation supplement is right for me?

Check out our Product Comparison Chart, especially if you're new to our supplements.

Since everyone responds differently to supplements, we often recommend starting with one each so you can discover what works best for you.

NOTE: Remember, personal results may vary, and we don't guarantee specific outcomes.

How long should I take a supplement?

The duration of product usage varies. Some moms use our products briefly to boost their supply or improve milk flow, while others incorporate them throughout their entire breastfeeding journey.

NOTE: If you have any inquiries about our products or their ingredients, we recommend discussing them with your healthcare provider or IBCLC before using them.

Can I take both Holistic Lactation® supplements at the same time?

Absolutely! You can start by experimenting with one lactation supplement for a period of 7-14 days. Our bodies have distinct physiology, and responses to supplements vary, so trying them individually can help identify the most effective products for you!

If you find one product works, you can add in the other to see additional benefits. Or perhaps one product hasn't been as effective, so you add in the other. It might take a few attempts to find the ideal combination that works for your body.

Are there side effects?

It's crucial to consult your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement regimen. You can find the list of ingredients on individual product pages.

Since our bodies and health histories vary, reactions to supplement ingredients can differ. Like with any supplement, there's a chance of hypersensitivity or allergy.

Our products contain organic ingredients and are free of additives and ingredients known to be problematic (fenugreek & lecithin), but they contain ingredients that may be new to you and your baby.

NOTE: To ensure safety, it's advisable to discuss the ingredients with your healthcare provider.

Can I take these supplements during pregnancy?

Congratulations on the upcoming addition to your family! While we share in your excitement for the upcoming breastfeeding journey, it's important to note that our products are not intended for use during pregnancy.

If you have concerns of low supply or other lactation complications, a fantastic step forward is to work with a skilled International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Together, you can create a personalized care plan focused on the overall wellness of both you and your baby, providing support for your breastfeeding and parenting goals.

Your IBCLC will be there for you prenatally and postpartum, offering recommendations for supplements, feeding plans, pumping guidance, latching help, and so much more. They can also provide referrals to other healthcare providers as needed, ensuring a positive start to your breastfeeding journey.

Appointments

Does insurance cover my appointments with you?

Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, lactation care is now covered by most insurance plans. Telehealth appointments are eligible for coverage. To find out what your plan will cover specifically, contact your insurance company directly and ask about your lactation benefits, as well as coverage for out-of-network providers.

Do you offer in-person appointments?

We only offer telehealth appointments. Our clients find that we are able to do everything we’d normally do if we were face-to-face except weigh your baby. We have specialized in virtual care since way before the pandemic and will guide you on the best ways to utilize video before & during our appointment with you.

How do video appointments work?

We provide instructions on sending us any relevant photos and videos before your appointment, as well as completing our intake forms so we have a lot of information by the time we meet. You can use your smartphone, tablet or computer to connect for your appointment. It’s very helpful to have another person nearby to assist with holding the camera. It’s also a good idea to have a flashlight on hand if there’s a possibility we will conduct an oral exam of your baby.

What if I can’t book an appointment with the IBCLC I wanted?

We work as a team at Holistic Lactation. This means when you work with one of our lactation consultants, you work with all of our lactation consultants. Our entire team has experience teaching other lactation professionals, plus decades of collective experience as IBCLCs. This means you get the benefit of multiple lactation consultants when you become a client.
