Get the breastfeeding support you need — exactly when and where you need it most.
When breastfeeding doesn’t quite turn out like you hoped it would, our board-certified lactation experts are here to help.
I worked with Lauren Majors for help with latching issues and screaming at feeding time with my little one. Lauren was extremely helpful in figuring out the issues with my little one and never dismissed the little details that other lactation consultants had by passed and ignored.

Breastfeeding can get complicated, but here’s what no one tells you... it’s not your fault.
Babies don’t latch.
Breasts get incredibly sore.
Milk supply dwindles over night.
Pumping just doesn’t go as planned.
We know the fear that settles in during the pitch-black nighttime hours.
We’ve felt the weight of dread that shows up when a doctor says your baby isn’t gaining weight.
And we know the power of mom-guilt when...
sleepless nights turn into exhausted days
you've washed all 17 parts of your pump (only to feel like you still don’t have enough milk)
and nursing a crying, fussy baby feels completely impossible.
We get it (because we’ve lived it, too).
Sometimes, figuring out how to successfully breastfeed your baby is HARD WORK.
And if it’s a struggle for you right now, that’s okay. You aren’t flawed, and you certainly aren’t failing your baby. You just need help.
There are lots of stats out there for you to learn as a mom. But here's one no one talks about:
9 out of 10 moms have trouble with breastfeeding. And more than half of these troubles happen when many offices are closed for business.
This is why we’ve created something different - an always on, always here support service that gives you access to a certified lactation consultant every single day of the week.
Our promise is simple:
We're here to help you through your toughest moments, no matter the time of day or night.
Breastfeeding struggles show up 24/7. That’s why we’re here to help. All day. Every day.
Our board-certified lactation consultants have helped thousands of moms overcome problems and concerns like...
- sore nipples and tender breasts
- breastfeeding while back-to-work
- low milk supply or too much milk supply
- struggles with latching and always hungry babies
- pump selection and insurance coverage
- night-time breastfeeding concerns
- and so much more

Still have questions?
How much does this cost?
Per visit costs are just $130 (compared to $200-$350 for most out-of-pocket office visits). Save even more with code BABYCENTER for 20% off each and every visit.
How can I pay for my visit?
Visits can be paid for with a credit card or with your HSA or FSA plan.
Will my insurance plan will cover this?
It depends. The Affordable Care Act has allowed lactation services to be covered by some insurance plans. At this time we are accepting HSA and FSA plans. Please contact your insurance provider directly to check eligibility. At any time after your appointment, you can access a claim receipt within your account if you choose to submit a claim to your insurance provider. Download our simple guide to accessing claim receipts. Looking for more information? Download the New Benefits for Breastfeeding Moms Toolkit from the National Women's Law Center for more information about coverage of lactation services. Sonder Health does not submit claims on your behalf.
What if I don't have insurance?
All of Sonder Health's services are available without insurance. Your visit will be charged to your credit card, HSA or FSA plan.
What services can I access once I sign up?
Everyone who registers has access to Sonder Health’s board-certified lactation consultants. And, as an added benefit for our customers, you also have access to other services like urgent care doctors, behavioral health therapists, nutritionists, and women’s health specialty care.
Is this a monthly subscription?
NO monthly subscription fees!
Are all of your lactation consultants IBCLCs?
Yes! All of our lactation consultants are IBCLCs - International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. The IBCLC credential is considered to be the gold standard in lactation care. When you work with an IBCLC, you can rest assured that you will receive competent, expert-level care.
What if I need help in the middle of the night?
You can log in and book an appointment anytime, 24/7. If you’ve already had an appointment, you can contact your lactation consultant - even in the middle of the night - using our secure email.
How long is each consultation?
Your first session with your lactation consultant will be 50 minutes. All follow-up visits are 25 minutes.
How secure is my information and my privacy?
Sonder Health is HIPAA compliant, and just like an in-person appointment, your information is completely private and secure. We never record or store sessions.
