COVID-19 Pandemic Update 11/2020

As of November 2020 I am primarily doing telehealth (phone and video chat services). I am doing some home visits. Contact me for information on current availability and covid safety criteria. My clinic is closed until community spread of Covid-19 is no longer a public health emergency.


We specialize in community-based breastfeeding help. We see breastfeeding as part of normal, healthy life. We help families in their homes because that is where breastfeeding most often happens. In-home problem solving lets us help families find solutions that fit their own lives.

A problem solving home visit includes a 1 to 2 hour visit in your home. During the visit we take a breastfeeding history, talk about your concerns, observe your baby feeding, check your baby’s weight, and create a solution plan. We help connect you to any other services that you might need and provide a consult report for you to share with your baby’s doctor. We are happy to communicate directly with your baby’s doctor as well. After the visit we follow-up by phone or email as needed.

Adria charges $125 for home visits. Home visit services include in-person followup at her drop-in clinic, by phone, and by email.

Adria’s drop-in clinic is on the west side of Madison (6409 Odana Rd, CHANGING ON 1/2/2020 TO 6502 Grand Teton Plaza Suite 107, Madison WI 53719), sharing space with Lumos Doula Services and Ginkgo Tree Counseling). The clinic is open 12-2 on Monday and Thursday. Families can stop by as many times as they need or want – for weight checks or problem-solving conversations. The one-time fee for the drop in clinic only (no home visit) is $75.

Ruth is retired and generally not available for one on one breastfeeding help.

We can provide forms and information if you would like to request reimbursement from your health insurance company. Our first priority is helping mothers — if payment is a problem for you, let us know so we can arrange payment over time.

Note: Adria only does home visits within Dane County. Because of travel time, availability for visits outside of Madison may be limited.

I (Adria) am also a Marriage and Family Therapist with a special focus on the life challenges that arise in the intersection of medical challenges, parenting, and mental health. I do not see lactation clients for therapy while they are actively getting lactation support from me but I am happy to work with partners or former clients.
