Fees are payable in full on the day at the end of the consultation.
As an Endorsed Midwife, you are given the opportunity to claim medicare rebates for lactation/midwifery services. To be eligible for Midwifery Services you need a letter of referral from your GP or obstetrician. A letter is not required if you are seeking Lactation services only, however Medicare rebatable services are only eligible up to 6 weeks and 6 days postnatal. You will be provided with a receipt for services that you can then take to Medicare or your private health fund to claim rebates. Not all private health funds cover lactation and midwifery services, check with your fund if relevant to you.
Adelaide Lactation Consultants & Midwifery accept cash or bank transfer. However, with our online booking system, you can pay for your consultation in full at the time of booking, or simply pay the required 50% deposit (2.4% booking fee).
*Visits over the time will be charged at $50 per hour or part thereof.
*Travel costs apply if over 40mins travel time (via Google Maps from Hallett Cove).
It would be expected an initial breastfeeding consult would take 1.5 hours and follow up appointments only 1 hour.
Please enquire about Gift certificates and packages.
Antenatal and Postnatal cares can be offered. See Midwifery Services tab for more information about this option.
Individual antenatal education can also be provided in collaboration with your obstetrician or birthing hospital. Please enquire about fee schedule.
