Who needs IBCLC

Meet Jaimie Zaki, LPN, IBCLC

Wichita Falls Texas Lactation Consultant Jaimie Zaki poses with Breast Model while teaching virtual breastfeeding class

Jaimie Zaki is a Licensed Practical Nurse, Birth Doula, Birth Photographer, and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Jaimie is a military wife and mother of four, passionate about supporting families as they prepare to welcome their new babies. 

While Jaimie helps breastfeeding mothers with a variety of conditions and situations, Jaimie specializes in supporting oral function, identifying oral restrictions (like tongue and lip ties), and creating personalized care plans for breastfeeding tongue tied babies. Did you know that many breastfeeding issues are related to oral restrictions?


Jaimie began her journey supporting new mothers as a La Leche League Leader in 2016 after her own challenging breastfeeding experience with her first baby. Jaimie learned the hard way about the impact of oral ties on breastfeeding, and that many healthcare providers were not skilled or informed on how tongue tie and lip tie could impact breastfeeding. Jaimie had to learn how to advocate for herself and her baby as pediatricians and lactation consultants encouraged her to quit breastfeeding. Eventually Jaimie found the right kind of support that helped her learn what she needed to know about breastfeeding a tongue tied baby. Jaimie went on to reach and exceed her breastfeeding goals.


That journey led Jaimie to become a La Leche League Leader, later pursuing her Certified Breastfeeding Specialist certificate and Doula Training, and eventually to seek training and certification as an IBCLC

Jaimie and her family moved to Wichita Falls, Texas in 2021 and she has been providing pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding support to families in Wichita Falls, Texas, Lawton, OK, Decatur, Texas and the surrounding areas. 

Jaimie offers in person breastfeeding help to families in the Wichita Falls area and can provide Virtual Breastfeeding Support for families in need outside of her local region. 

If you pregnant and planning to breastfeed or currently navigating breastfeeding challenges, Jaimie is here to help you achieve your personal breastfeeding goals.

Insurance Covered Lactation Consults Wichita Falls & Telehealth

The Affordable Care Act ensures that lactation support and breastfeeding care are covered by health insurance. Unfortunately, there are still many insurance programs that make insurance coverage for lactation support challenging and unattainable.

We are currently accepting TRICARE EAST and AETNA plans, and hoping to add more in-network partners soon! 

While not every health plan is working directly with Jaimie Zaki and Little Bear Lactation, most plans will reimburse you for any out of pocket lactation expenses. If your insurance is not working with Jaimie, you can contact them to request a special coverage exception / gap exception. You will also receive a Superbill to submit for possible reimbursement of your visit fee. 

If you have TRICARE West or Medicaid, you will not be covered and are unlikely to be reimbursed for a consult with Jaimie. As a courtesy, Little Bear Lactation offers a Tricare West or Medicaid Discount. You must be able to provide your insurance information/card to verify eligibility. 

 If your insurance is not participating, you may choose to self-pay and receive a superbill from Jaimie for you to submit to your insurance company for possible full or partial reimbursement

Maybe you just need help fitting your breast pump and figuring out the right routine for pumping and breastfeeding, or even exclusively pumping. No matter your lactation needs, Little Bear Lactation is here to help! 

Private Lactation Consultations include an assessment of yours & baby's medical histories, birth experience, a breastfeeding assessment, breast assessment for mom, oral assessment for baby, comprehensive body assessment for baby, weight check (when possible/applicable), and creation of a personalized breastfeeding plan to help you take a step toward achieving your breastfeeding goals.

My Insurance isn't working with you, what should I do? 

If your insurance is not currently working with Little Bear Lactation, you have a few options. 


Apply for Gap Coverage or a Special Exceptions 


You can contact your insurance company to see if they cover any lactation consultants in the area. If they don't have options available for you, you may be able to request a special exception or gap coverage where they pre-approve you to work with an out of network provider with the agreement they will pay. If you are making this request, please let me know so I can provide the best contact information for them to connect with me if necessary. 

FSA/HSA Coverage 

Flex Spending Accounts and Health Care Savings Accounts can be used toward lactation care! 

Superbill Reimbursement 

Even if you do not get a special exception, you may be able to submit your superbill to your insurance company for reimbursement. Doing this requires you to pay in full up front, however, you may receive a full or partial reimbursement from your insurance company to cover your lactation care.

Common Questions about Breastfeeding Support with Jaimie 

What is a Lactation Consultant? What is an IBCLC? 

A lactation consultant is someone who helps women reach their breastfeeding goals. The term "lactation consultant" can describe anyone in any roll who supports breastfeeding, regardless of education and credentialing.  An IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) is a healthcare professional who has attended 90 credits of Lactation Specific Education, achieved 1000 hours of Breastfeeding Support Training (depending on training pathway), and passed an International Board Exam for Lactation Consultants. IBCLCs are considered the "gold standard" in lactation support, and continue their lactation education through regular training, workshops, etc.

IBCLCs have the broadest scope of practice out of all lactation care providers and are the only lactation care providers adequately trained to create a customized breastfeeding care plan for complex breastfeeding challenges and collaborate with your healthcare team. 

I've already worked with one or two lactation consultants, how can you help me?

Were the other lactation consultants you worked with IBCLCs? Sometimes people use the term "lactation consultant" in a way that is misleading, when their actual credentials are Lactation Educator, Lactation Counselor, Breastfeeding Specialist, or Birth Doula. 

If your lactation consultant visit was in the hospital, it's important to understand that hosptial-based IBCLCs typically have a limited ability to provide comprehensive care due to their high case volume, and many breastfeeding issues do not show up until after leaving the hospital. 

If you have seen an IBCLC who dedicated time to your case, but was unable to help, it is possible that they simply didn't have enough experience in your specific circumstances. Finding an IBCLC who is experienced in your specific concerns can make a big difference. 

Who should work with a Lactation Consultant? 

Anyone who plans on breastfeeding! I highly recommend any mother who plans to breastfeed hires a lactation consultant prenatally to create a base knowledge for breastfeeding, and to create a personalized Breastfeeding Plan to help achieve her goals. Postpartum, many women find themselves facing a variety of breastfeeding challenges, some normal, some more complex. These women usually benefit from working closely with a skilled lactation professional to identify the breastfeeding concerns and create a personalized breastfeeding care plan for addressing those breastfeeding challenges. 

What is "Prenatal Breastfeeding Support" and who should book prenatal breastfeeding visits? 

As mentioned above, prenatal breastfeeding support is a proactive approach pregnant women can take toward preparing to reach their breastfeeding goals. While a prenatal breastfeeding consult does not guarantee you will not face breastfeeding challenges, it can help you anticipate common challenges and create a plan for overcoming them. It's also a great way to assess your risk of certain breastfeeding challenges based on medical history. 

Prenatal breastfeeding consults are not just for first time moms either! Experienced mothers who struggled with breastfeeding in the past can benefit from prenatal breastfeeding help to understand what might have been the problem last time, and learn how to manage it or avoid it next time! 

What happens during a lactation consult? 

Before your lactation consult you will receive questionnaires and contracts that can seem very tedious but are very important. By thoroughly reviewing and filling out your pre-consult paperwork, you can ensure we are both well prepared for your visit. You will be asked to describe your breastfeeding goals, concerns, challenges, questions, and you will be asked questions about your medical history and your baby's medical and birth history. 

During the visit, we will begin by reviewing your goals and concerns. I will assess your baby's oral function, weight, feeding skills, and the condition of your breasts as needed. We will then work together to create a plan for overcoming the problems we identify. You will be encouraged to plan a follow up visit to ensure we are making progress toward your goals and so we can re-evaluate the care plan as needed. I will also make referrals and recommendations to other providers as needed, as well as send a copy of your chart to your OB/Pediatrician as needed. 

How does virtual breastfeeding help work? 

Many families who need breastfeeding support are in an area where they either do not have access to a private lactation consultant due to regional constraints, or the local lactation support is not affordable. Virtual Breastfeeding Help is a great option to bring resources to families who need them, despite geographical or financial barriers. 

Virtual Breastfeeding Support relies on clear communication between parents and the lactation provider. While Virtual Breastfeeding Support is not quite the same as troubleshooting breastfeeding in person, there is a lot we can still uncover and resolve virtually. The best part of virtual breastfeeding support is that parents take a very active role in their lactation care. 

Virtual Breastfeeding Support is fantastic for routine breastfeeding support like Prenatal Breastfeeding Visits, Back-to-work Breastfeeding Support, and Weaning Support. 

When you make your appointment for Virtual Breastfeeding Support you will be sent a calendar invite and link for your call. Please arrive to the call about 5 minutes early to make sure any technical issues are resolved so the appointment can run efficiently. 

How much does a lactation consultant cost? 

The cost of breastfeeding support varies based off regional location, provider experience, education, and more. Our Current Breastfeeding Support Self-Pay rates are listed below. 

Do you take insurance for lactation consulting? 

Little Bear Lactation is excited to announce that we are able to provide insurance-covered breastfeeding support.  If your insurance does not work with us at this time, we recommend calling your insurance to advocate for special exception lactation coverage, and considering self-pay options including FSA/HSA. 

Jaimie Zaki is now accepting TRICARE East Clients and Aetna Participants and is also working with the Lactation Network to bring insurance-covered lactation support to families with various health plans!

What region do you offer in person breastfeeding support? 

I am currently offering a limited amount of in-home breastfeeding support visits in the Wichita Falls, Texas area, including Sheppard Air Force Base. Telehealth option is always available and home-office visits will be available soon! 

Service area includes Wichita Falls, Burkburnett, Iowa Park.
