Please, please, please, PLEASE call a La Leche League leader. It's free, they are very experienced, and will do what it takes to help. And did I mention it's free? Plus, a lactation consultant never actually has to have nursed to be certified, did you know that? LLL leaders have to nursed for a year min...so they've experienced some of what real people have problems with. Go to <a href="http://www.llli.org" target="_blank">www.llli.org</a> and go to the bottom of the page, there's a part you click on that sends you to a listing of countries, click on United States, then click on your state, and it will give you a list of local groups. Please, give it a try. It's free. You COULD join as a member, but the leaders will help you regardless.

RIDICULOUS!!<br>
do they not allow out-of pocket pays?<br><br>
or do you not have the money?<br><br>
I would call your LLL Leaders, they will help over the phone for free. and should be able to recommend some more LC's.....<br><br>
My midwife, who is not technically an LC, but quite knowledgable, came to see me for like $75....there are at least 5 other LC's in the area...plus, there are like 6+ LLL Leaders, many of whom are also actual LC's.....plus, WIC has BF counselors and LC's, and the 2 hospitals have LC's on staff., plus one has a free BF support group with an LC........I don't know your history, but usually hospital help is free, at least here...

I don't know where you are located, but if you are in SE MI PM me, my MW is an LC, and I know for a fact she would see you without insurance for probably a low fee.

they want $$ up front. All of my other stuff is in collections {sagamore has a lot of fine print stuff that we knew nothing about until after the bills started pouring in} or on a payments plan, but this...<br><br>
The health department in our county is a joke. And not a very funny one. They sent a letter of concern to me when the school alterted them to my dd's vaccine exemption letter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I sent them back a copy of the state law allowing me to choose the exemption without consequence...<br><br>
Going to try and get in touch with a different LLL than I tried the last time. The one linked for our area doesn't reply to my e-mails, so I'm going to try the next closest leader.. Thanks for the reminder!

There should be a phone number on the site. If you can't find a phone number on your local group, there is definately a national help line, and usually a helpline state to state. Where are you?

Indiana. I just called and left a voicemail for the LLL leader that gave me the address of the on-site sling shop I needed a few weeks ago. I didn't even know she was a LLL leader until now. I found her email the last time through a sling site <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> wow..
