Children First Pediatrics is proud to offer a special breastfeeding room that is cozy and quiet for our breastfeeding moms if you need to pump and/or feed while you are in our Rockville office.
We offer Pump Rentals, Breastfeeding Supplies, Home Consults and more through the BREASTFEEDING CENTER OF MARYLAND.
We offer these supplies and rentals in our office for your convenience but these supplies and any home visits are NOT billed to insurance.
**If you call your insurance they may tell you that Lactation Services are not covered but we bill under Children First Pediatrics if you are a patient of Children First and see one of our lactation consultants in the office so deductibles/copays may apply but it is usually covered!
