Practice Changes

Starting June 1, 2020 we are offering in home visits for lactation services again. In person doula and monitrice services are available for out-of-hospital births. Please contact us for further information about virtual doula support if you are planning a hospital birth. Be well!


Insurance Coverage

We are so excited to announce that we’ve officially partnered with Lactation Network! This is an incredible organization that helps moms and moms-to-be get the breastfeeding support they deserve, covered by their insurance.

The Lactation Network guarantees every mother three 90-minute, in-home lactation consultations with a registered IBCLC, like me, at no out of pocket cost. They handle the paperwork and bill your insurance directly.

To learn more and schedule a consultation with me, visit and use my name, Cassandra Partridge, as the IBCLC who referred you.

For insurance plans that are not currently billed by Lactation Network, we will provide you with a superbill to submit for reimbursement. All fees listed below are self-pay rates.

Why Mamatrice™️?

There are many good options to choose from when looking for doula and lactation services in the Northern Virginia area. And that is a blessing! We will not be the right fit for every woman or every family. But we are able to offer a level of full-spectrum, integrative support services that are unparalleled. Being able to wear many hats is a strength. It allows us to function both inside and outside the current healthcare system, with mothers and families at the center where they belong. At Mamatrice™️ we believe there is always enough. And we strive to model that mindset with both our clients and our colleagues.



All visits take place in the comfort of your own home. Lactation consultations are available in person and through the HIPAA compliant Maven platform by video chat. First Maven appointment is FREE. Contact us for details before booking.

Specialized techniques, including Therapeutic Breast Massage in Lactation, muscle testing for galactagogues and tongue/lip tie assessment, are included in the regular lactation consultation visit as needed or requested. We work collaboratively with Dr. Rishita Jaju of Smile Wonders to meet your family’s needs before and after laser frenectomy.

Doula and monitrice services include a FREE 20 minute video call (FaceTime, Duo or Skype) to see if working together is a good fit. In person and virtual doula clients have access to our client lending library, TENS unit (if available), acupressure booklet and Emotional Freedom Techniques® coaching. Muscle testing for herbal/homeopathic remedies is available for monitrice clients.
