Visit at Integrative Family Medicine in Ankeny or West Des Moines
Use your insurance (so you don't have to pay much out of pocket). I'm at Integrative Family Medicine office in Ankeny on Mondays and West Des Moines on Tuesdays.
Use your insurance
At integrative family medicine they accept all insurance cards, even title 19/medicaid. You may have a copay or an out of pocket expense, depending on your insurance plan.
I'm here to help you feel comfortable with your body and feeding your baby. Education is power! I want you to be prepared and feel comfortable with putting baby to breast. It is in your best interest to be mentally prepared for delivery and the "4th Trimester."
There are a few necessary items to be prepared with for breastfeeding. What's not really necessary? We can discuss that.
See a provider for mom
Once mom has established care at Integrative Family medicine, they can prescribe ointments or prescriptions that I encourage- in case you have yeast or need lab work for low milk supply.
You can see a family medicine provider and IBCLC lactation specialist in the same clinic
Nothing like seamless care, all of us working together on the same team for the goal of better health for your child (and you)!
Problem Visits and Pump Questions
Any lactation related or human milk concern is a reason to see me! Bring your pump and supplies and we will troubleshoot to fix your problem. I have been hands on with almost all brands of pumps. What is my favorite type of pump? There's a few types. Let's look at them toether.
Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies, traditional and non-traditional. We often say that we bridge the gap between traditional and functional medicine, because we treat common medical conditions with new, effective therapies not commonly found in your regular doctor’s office.
