When Courson initially found breast-feeding difficult, she again turned to her insurance provider.
“I had so many questions and concerns. I wanted to see a lactation consultant so I called insurance just to see.”
Courson learned that she had coverage for counseling, and found a provider who would visit her home. Now more than a month after delivering Nicholas, breast-feeding is going well.
“Knowing this kind of care is available and covered ... that is huge,” she said.
