I believe that if insurance payed a portion of or you paid a co-payment for lactation consultation or similar support and help from an expert......would more women seek the help they needed??
I know I would have. I forked over a TON of money for a lactation consultant, the formula feeding mechanism that goes against your nipple, and a pump. I was lucky in that I had been in disability and so was still receiving a pay check.....so we could afford it. But it was several hundred dollars. How many people have that money??
BF advocates should be lobbying the insurance companies...THEN...maybe a change in societal attitude would begin.
