Doctor On Demand Has Added Lactation Services

on Dec 15, 2014 in Central Texas News, National News, News

DOD has partnered with Upspring Baby to provide online lactation services and now moms everywhere will have access to a lactation consultant (IBCLC) from their mobile device and can get an appointment within hours of the request.

Access to care is a major barrier for too many moms in the US.  There are too many locations in the US where a mom would have to travel over an hour to find a practicing IBCLC or available appointments are more than a day away.  With this added service to Doctor on Demand, anyone in the US, no matter where you live or what time of day you need help you will be able to talk to a qualified professional in lactation care.  Services are available from 7:00am to 12:00am CST.  More than just a skype consult this service is completely HIPPA compliant and backed with security protocols to ensure that your health information is kept safe.  If you are unfamiliar with Doctor on Demand, it is an app that you can download and once your account information is set up you will have access to an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) as well as pediatricians, general practitioners, and psychologists with the touch of a button.  Access to all of these providers is also very affordable.  $40 per visit

There are definitely times when hands on support is needed but many questions and issues can be resolved with a video consult.  Much more effective than a phone consultation, a video consult allows the practitioner to see your baby, your positioning, assess any nipple damage or oral anomalies in your baby.  IBCLCs can work with you to to create a plan for going back to work, assess flange and nipple shield sizing.  The possibilities are immense.  If a hands on consultation is needed, LCs will help connect moms to their local resources.

The App is free to download and setup only takes a few minutes.
