**Information Regarding This Practice and Corona Virus**

We, at The Second9Months, understand that you may have concerns about contact with people outside your family right now, but that doesn’t change the fact that you may need help! We are happy to address your concerns.

With rare exceptions, we are doing virtual consultations. for lactation support. Virtual consultations can be surprisingly effective with an experienced provider. We use a HIPAA compliant, secure platform to ensure your privacy.

When an in-person visit is warranted, an office visit may be scheduled after screening for illness and travel.  For in-person visits, we regularly use universal precautions with hand washing, gloves and cleaning. In addition to basic precautions, we are disinfecting all devices and scales before and after consultations, wearing a mask and wearing gloves for the entire consultation.

Aetna and First Choice subscribers: We can bill Aetna and First Choice for virtual consultations!  A super bill will be provided to clients with other insurance and many insurance plans do reimburse a portion or all of the fee.

For more information about virtual consultations, please see this post.
