Below is my best attempt at a comprehensive list of breastfeeding help in the Waco area. If you know of someone I missed, let me know in the comments or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll get it on here ASAP!
Postpartum Doula & Lactation Services: Tonja Carpenter, owner & IBCLC, and Abby Van Hecke, IBCLC.
- Friday/Saturday Clinic at the Waco Birth Center & Clinic
- Home visits also available
- Some insurance accepted, but for others payment is made upfront and a superbill provided for the client to request insurance reimbursement.
La Leche League also provides free support and holds meetings all over central Texas.
The same is true for those who gave birth at Providence, although they do not have as many lactation consultants on staff, and so may have limited availability. They offer a breastfeeding support group as well.
