According to Romper, a good lactation consultant isn’t cheap because they often aren’t covered by insurance plans and new moms have to pay out of pocket for their services.
It’s sad that they are so pricey because they really do provide a vital service. Breastfeeding isn’t as easy as some people
think, and some moms need to refine their method under the watchful eye of a lactation consultant with years of experience under her belt. It might be tempting to hire a cheaper consultant, but as with anything else, the more expensive lactation consultants are really worth it because they have decades of education and experience under their belt.
