A turnkey lactation care solution, plus comprehensive cost savings.

Taking care of parents PAYS OFF

Unfortunately, lack of robust lactation care is costly to both families and the economy: 

  • Only 55% of women return to work after having a baby, and over 43% of new parents leave the workforce within three months of giving birth 
  • Only 25% of US mothers meet clinical guidelines for breastfeeding 
  • The economic cost of not breastfeeding is $341.3 billion annually
  • Non-breastfed newborns are at an increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome, gastroenteritis, autoimmune disease, childhood leukemia, childhood obesity, and more

But comprehensive breastfeeding support pays off for working parents and the companies they serve: Companies with lactation programs have a 94% post-maternity leave retention rate.

Partner with The Lactation Network to offer inclusive coverage that solves critical pain points for working parents, employers, and health plans.

Instant alignment with the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Under the Affordable Care Act, health plans are required to pay for lactation care and expenses for the duration of the breastfeeding journey. However, most health plans lack adequate care and network access, offering only brief in-hospital visits or general referrals.  

It doesn’t have to be this way. 

Cover every base with a sustainable, compliant solution. Industry-leading coverage with TLN includes easily-accessible, in-network providers that don’t require travel, long wait times, or high out-of-pocket costs for patients. With the largest network of IBCLCs in the nation, we can reach any family via telehealth or in-person visits.

I wanted to exclusively breastfeed and not rely on formula if possible. With the help of my lactation consultant, I was able to do just that. My son is now 16 months old and still breastfeeds daily.

TLN Parent

We started out with a lot of difficulties breastfeeding, but our breastfeeding relationship was saved due to the help of our lactation consultant. We are continuing to breastfeed my newly two-year-old son.

TLN Parent

My goal was to breastfeed for six months, but I’m still doing so after 20 months now. We were on the brink of not making it should it not have been for the amazing help from our lactation consultants.
