Sound Beginnings IBCLC Referrals

Sound Beginnings will have limited availability between now and April while our owner and lead lactation consultant is on maternity leave. Our team member Melissa will have sporadic availability during this time, but is not currently in-network with Aetna.

Beginning in May 2019, Joy will have availability for consultations in the Sound Beginnings Shoreline office (where she will often have her baby in tow); as well as limited availability for in-home consultations (typically be held during evenings and weekends and reserved for families who have newborns and/or are recovering from birth). Phone consultations will continue to be available and we appreciate your understanding for baby noises in the background.

For your convenience, here is a list of other out-of-hospital lactation consultants we refer to as needed:
