Maternal Infant Lactation Consulting

Susan Howlett, M.A., IBCLC

Welcome to Maternal Infant Lactation Consulting.

Breastfeeding infant

I am an IBCLC certified Lactation Consultant with over 20 years of experience.

I offer private breastfeeding support at home visits in Peterborough, Lindsay, and surrounding areas by booking at ($90.00 fee required). Book through the Home Visit link on the main page. No referral is required.

I also offer virtual and clinic visits through the Ontario Breastfeeding Clinic. 

The in-person clinic visits are located at the Peterborough and Lindsay midwives clinics.

Visits (virtual and clinic) which are OHIP-insured require a referral from a midwife, family physician, or a Nurse Practitioner. Each appointment is $77.00 + HST = $87.01 to cover the fees of the International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, which are not covered by OHIP. A Pediatrician will also be available during the visit for consultation.

There is now also an option through the Ontario Breastfeeding Clinic for Private-Pay Options (virtual, clinic, and home visits - without a pediatrician consult). No referral is needed.

See the OBC website for details.

Please note that I will only be doing home visits through the Maternal Infant Lactation Consulting link. I have opted out of the Ontario Breastfeeding Clinic Private Pay home visit option.

If you have any private insurance coverage, lactation services may be reimbursed.
