We offer Ameda hospital grade breast pump rentals.

Jana is a godsend! I scheduled my first appointment when my daughter was almost 4 weeks old, after a very painful start to our breastfeeding journey. During our first meeting Jana helped us make so much progress that it almost brought me to tears. She also discovered that my daughter had both a tongue and lip tie, which was the source of much of my pain. She was able to make a referral to a doctor to revise the ties, and a chiropractor to do body work to relieve tension she was carrying due to the midline defects. My daughter is now 9 weeks old and I’ve been able to continue exclusively breastfeeding all this time - currently with zero pain! Jana has been incredibly patient, understanding, and kind to me throughout the entire process. She’s passionate and has a true gift for helping mamas on this journey. I am so, so grateful that I made that initial appointment!

I received top notch service from the Lactation Consultants of Atlanta and I would recommend them to anyone I know that requires their service. Booking them was straight forward, consultation room was clean and comfortable and the actual service itself was wonderful. I left feeling heard and satisfied. Jana was amazing and checked in after and followed up with several resources to assist with my breastfeeding journey. It would have been a lot more difficult to continue without their help and I am extremely grateful.

I am so grateful to Lactation Consultants of Atlanta for coming in to my home for a consultation. It was so easy to book the appointment (within 48 hours). Melissa was fantastic and helped validate a lot of what I have been experiencing on my breastfeeding journey as well as provided several helpful tips. Highly recommend if you are struggling with breastfeeding and/or pumping!

I can't begin to express my gratitude enough for Lactation Consultants of Atlanta. Melissa has truly been God sent! I left the hospital with little hope that I would be able to breastfeed for much longer and now I am more confident than ever in my breastfeeding journey!! Highly highly recommend LCA!

We worked with Melissa and she was amazing!! I was concerned about my latch and several things with our little one and she helped me talk through everything, took time and listened, and really helped me and my husband understand our little one better. We came confused and heavy hearted and left feeling confident, empowered, and loved!! She followed up with an email with many resources and we made a plan before we left. I couldn't recommend more highly for anyone who is breastfeeding, no matter your journey!

Our baby ended up unexpectedly in the NICU after birth. Because I wasn't able to breastfeed for 4 days, I used the pump in the hospital to get my milk supply in. The lactation consultant advised me to rent a hospital grade pump to help the process once I went home. Knowing it was important to keep my pumping schedule up, Lactation Consultants set out a pump for us to pick up late at night after we checked out of the hospital so I could benefit from not missing any pumping sessions since our baby had to stay at the hospital. It took the worry away and was much appreciated.

So grateful for Sharon and all the talented staff at Lactation Consultants of Atlanta. My baby was refusing to nurse and people were telling me to give up and switch to formula. Sharon got us back on track!
