ATLANTA BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT
Many of us have heard that breastfeeding is best but once we are home with our babies it's not as easy as we had hoped. Help is here when you need it. As a Registered Nurse and IBCLC I can provide full service lactation services in the comfort of your home or virtually if you prefer.
Need breastfeeding support? As an IBCLC for 5 years I have had the pleasure of supporting hundreds of women in their breastfeeding journey. As well, I have been a Registered Nurse for over 20 years, and breastfed my 4 children. I would love the opportunity to support you as well.
I am able to do both virtual and in-person consults in my office. Visits are scheduled as needed.

FREE BREAST PUMPS WITH INSURANCE
Most insurance companies cover free personal-use breast pumps. We can help you obtain your free insurance breast pump. Complete the contact form below to get yours today.
HOSPITAL GRADE BREAST PUMPS
We also rent Ameda Elite hospital grade breast pumps. This pump is highly effective and low cost and can be used as long as needed to protect the milk supply. The kit that goes with the pump is a one time purchase of $50.00. If you have received a kit in the NICU and it is for a Ameda breast pump it will work with the Ameda Elite breast pump.

HOSPITAL-GRADE BREAST PUMPS: RENTAL COST & INSURANCE
$20 / week, rented for 2 weeek increments only. Your credit card will be kept on file and charged at the beginning of the 2-week schedule until you return the pump. You can rent the pump using a Health Savings Account, and pump rentals may be reimbursable by some private insurers.
Pumps can be picked up or delivered for a fee depending on mileage.

MEET KIANA AYERS, RN, IBCLC
I have been a Registered Nurse for over 20 years. I've been a teen mom, NICU mom, single mom, working mom, and a married mom. My experience as a mother is helpful as I provide you with support. I have been an IBCLC for 5 years helping hundreds of families meet their breastfeeding goals. In 2018 I was awarded the March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Award for my work with Amerigroup leading their lactation program.
I am dedicated to supporting all women but have a special interest in the underserved community. I recently founded a non profit Ready Set Push with the goal of increasing access to quality childbirth education in the community.
"Kiana gave us the needed strength in all the unexpected challenges that popped up with breastfeeding. From the day after birth consulting in our home, to the group setting of the breastfeeding class she teaches, she provides critical info and tips to ensure success!"
- Joni Edmonds
"Just before my daughter was born, I attended Kiana's (very informative) breastfeeding class, confirming what I already knew--she would be my lactation consultant. I told her that I would be calling her from my bedside...and I did! My daughter was born with BCLP (we did not know previously) and Kiana has been instrumental in building my confidence in being able to nurse her. Her passion is so evident and she truly wants to see her mommies and babies succeed. I am thankful that her purpose was aligned with the will on my family's lives as it was truly a divine appointment. I look forward to continuing our relationship as my daughter prepares for lip surgery. Trusting your lactation care to Kiana is a win-win for your birth plan and she will truly be your loudest supporter!"
"Kiana was such a blessing to my family. Her birth class was very hands-on and informative for me and my husband. She explained each stage of labor in detail and got me prepared for delivery day. Her lactation class was also very hands-on and informative for a first-time mom like me. Breastfeeding was not easy for me but she was always there to answer my calls, texts, and she even made a home visit after the baby was born to assist me with my breastfeeding woes. Because of her, I am now 4 months in exclusively breastfeeding, I am so thankful for her."
