anyway, the lc's at the hospital keep pointing her to video (that features a 4mos old -- as if that could help).
so she decided to go to our local lactaction resource center (not laleche) for a consult ($100 an hour). anyway, they provided her w/ some forms and directed her to call her ins co. apparently, several have started to cover these services.
i thought that was kind of interesting -- knowing that ins co's do due diligence in terms of cost benefit research they must see this as $ well spent (healthier babies?). maybe some will cover pumps in the future?
unfortunately, her ins co said no, but she spent $100 anyway.
