<p>Birth and Beyond also has a free breastfeeding hotline.   <a href="http://www.birthandbeyond.com/breastfeedinghelp.html" target="_blank">http://www.birthandbeyond.com/breastfeedinghelp.html</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I swear the hospitals around here used to have them too, but it looks like they all charge now.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also- I know at Valley Medical Center, they have a free parent support group every week, and it's run by a lactation specialist.  Other hospitals might have something similar.</p>

<p>Also, some insurances will cover lactation consultants.  I know the ones at Evergreen were able to successfully bill my insurance when I went in for help with ds1 (though this was nearly 6 years ago).  I think the fact that they are also nurses helped.</p>

<p>Evergreen Hospital has a <a href="http://www.evergreenhospital.org/landing.cfm?id=1387" target="_blank">Breastfeeding Center</a> that offers free phone consultations.  I called it almost daily after I had my first baby.</p>
