AUSTIN – My Pure Delivery is a breastfeeding clinic located in the Austin suburb of Cedar Park, Texas that provides lactation support and assistance to growing families. We have a staff of seven International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) and have assisted thousands of families with their breastfeeding difficulties. During the COVID-19 outbreak, our lactation consultants have found creative ways to continue to ensure access to high-quality support for breastfeeding mothers and their babies while taking into account the new social distancing measures laid out by government and medical officials.
The World Health Organization recognizes breast milk as the ideal food for infants. Breast milk is clean, safe, and contains antibodies which help to protect against many illnesses. Additionally, many caregivers have reported difficulty finding baby formula in grocery stores during the COVID-19 outbreak. Breastfeeding has health and financial benefits, and research shows that breastfeeding mothers who receive support are more likely to breastfeed longer than mothers who do not.
Most of our services are eligible to be covered by insurance and we are working diligently with insurance providers to expand our network and ensure coverage for virtual visits, bringing access to care for breastfeeding mothers nationwide. Like many medical services, we have shifted the vast majority of our appointments to a HIPAA-compliant online telehealth platform, which allows our lactation consultants to see moms and babies privately and securely from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Because of this new virtual platform, we are now able to provide consultations for breastfeeding parents from around the country.
For families whose challenges require in-person visits with a lactation consultant, we have added new health and safety procedures to our already robust sanitation protocols. In addition to thoroughly disinfecting treatment rooms in between all appointments, we have implemented temperature checks for clients and staff, are limiting in-office appointments to support social distancing measures and have moved to a curbside model for all equipment pick up and drop off.
We are continuing our hospital grade breast pump rental program during this time and have moved to a fully no-contact curbside pick-up and drop off model available to families by appointment. While we are not currently open to the public for retail sales, the same curbside model is applied to breastfeeding supplies for our clients when recommended by their lactation consultant. For families whose baby requires regular weight checks to monitor growth, we have developed a program that includes the rental of an infant scale along with frequent virtual check-ins with their lactation consultant. This program has already successfully allowed for numerous families to monitor their baby’s weight gain with support and close guidance from their lactation consultant.
We are also continuing to offer breastfeeding, newborn care and infant cpr classes as well as support groups to new and expectant parents and have embraced our new virtual platform. This has allowed us to continue serving our local moms, as well as moms from around the country. Additional virtual offerings have included wellness webinars and expanded class offerings. Most of our online events are free, and those that aren’t can often be covered by insurance.
