EMPIRE LACTATION, INC.
The Care You Deserve
EMPIRE LACTATION, formerly Mami Mia, has been providing lactation and doula support since 2011.
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and Doula, Lea brings over 30 years of child development and education experience to lactation support. She has provided 1000s of families with direct support and supported over 225 births. Her commitment to quality care and information is the hallmark of her work.
Empire Lactation no longer is in network to any insurance, but will be happy to help fight for your reimbursement. A new tiered plan to allow more people access to high quality, consistent care has been instituted. If you have questions about billing or fees or are ready to book please click the link here or below.
As of January 2020, Empire Lactation has reformed as an affiliate network. The independent contractors who made up the team and who are each individually experienced and highly trained Breastfeeding Counselors are now 100% independent of Empire Lactation. If you would like to work with any of the affiliates please click on their name in their profile below and you will be re-directed to their sites. The reason for this change is discussed in the blog post Changes to Empire Lactation.
For the health of all persons it is recommended to schedule a virtual consultation initially. In person consultations are confirmed on a case by case basis. If an in-home consult is agreed to then:
All scales are disinfected with either bleach spray or Cavicide wipes between each visit.
Only two visits per day are available to allow the consultant to change clothes between each visit.
Face masks and gloves are used at all times.
We ask that all members of the family also wear masks or face coverings at the time of visit.
Any symptoms of illness within 24 hours of the appointment is a reason to cancel without penalty.
POSTPARTUM LACTATION SUPPORT

An in home visit will include a full assessment and evaluation of your feeding session, which includes:
