Jaimie came to my rescue after a mutual friend of ours sent her my way! ...my baby had a shallow latch I could feel it and that consultant told me it felt that way due to the thrush.. when the thrush was gone I was still in pain and I was desperate for help...Jaimie is very knowledgeable about breastfeeding and I highly recommend her, she is very thorough ..."

Frequently asked questions

What lactation services do you offer?


Little Bear Services offers online prenatal education, private prenatal consults to prepare you for your baby's arrival, and postpartum lactation support to navigate any concerns or challenges. I provide support through common nursing challenges, sore nipples, latch concerns, poor weight gain, starting solids, weaning, and more. Please contact me if you have any questions about whether a breastfeeding support visit is right for you.




Do you offer virtual or in-person support?


I am currently only offering virtual breastfeeding support visits. Starting in late Summer/Early Fall 2021 I will be providing in-home and in-office breastfeeding support in Wichita Falls, Texas in addition to virtual support.




Does Little Bear Lactation offer medical advice?


As I am not a doctor, I can not provide medical diagnosis or advice. All information on my website is intended for educational purposes only. As an allied healthcare professional, contracted clients will experienc a thorough clinical breastfeeding assessment of both mother and baby, data will be recorded and shared with the dyad's healthcare providers as requested by the client. The client will receive a lactation care plan with actionable tips to improve their breastfeeding challenges. Referals to specialists will be made for any concerns outside of the IBCLC scope of practice. I frequently refer to providers such as pediatric dentists, cranio sacral therapists, chiropractors, speech language pathologists, etc.




Do you work with insurance?


I am not currently in network with any major insurance companies, however I do accept FSA/HSA payments. Additionally you will be provided with a Superbill that can be submitted to your insurance provider for possible reimbursement. I encourage all clients to submit their superbill even if you don't think it will be covered, so that insurance companies can see the demand for lactation support coverage.

Check back regularly for any updates on insurance coverage as I am in the process of applying for in network coverage with multiple insurance plans.
I do offer a 15% discount for military families.
