The Good

  • Clinically Trained Lactation Consultant
  • Insurance Could Cover 100% of Costs
  • Transparent Pricing
  • Discounted Rates 

Clinically Trained Lactation Consultant

The idea of Roots to Wings Lactation was born when Shannon Gill struggled with breastfeeding her oldest son. Shannon Gill is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant as well as a volunteer La Leche League Leader in Denver, Colorado. 

The International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) establishes the highest standards in lactation and breastfeeding care worldwide. Individuals who meet these standards are then certified. 

La Leche League International started with a few breastfeeding mothers who wanted to provide help and support to interested women. Since then, the company has become an international organization whose primary focus is for women to share personal experiences, information, and encouragement. 

Insurance Could Cover 100% of Costs

Families with the Anthem PPO, BCBS PPO, Cigna PPO, or United PPO insurance may be covered and not have to pay for any of the consults. To find out if the consults are covered, users should visit the Lactation Network and get all visits pre-approved — users will need to answer yes to the first question, then enter Shannon Gill, IBCLC.

Transparent Pricing

For families who aren’t insured, Gill provides a transparent pricing structure on her website. The Self-Pay option is simple as families will pay $150 (although a superbill is provided for potential reimbursement with other insurance companies), and any follow-up visits will cost $80. 

Discounted Rates

Roots to Wings prides itself on being an inclusive practice. Families of any race, age, gender, sexual orientation, family structure, or ability are welcome. However, if money is an issue, Gill offers discounted rates for recipients of WIC and Medicaid who need breastfeeding help.

The Bad

  • Limited Service Area

Limited Service Area

Unfortunately, Gill only provides her services to residents throughout the Denver metro region north to Westminster, east to Aurora, south to Castle Rock along the I-25 corridor and west to Lakewood. 

However, mothers outside the boundaries don’t need to give up on getting help. Gill encourages mothers to contact her as she may be able to travel to them (although a travel fee may be included), or she can provide contact information for a trusted colleague who serves that area.

The Bottom Line

Shannon Gill’s company Roots to Wings provides new mothers with breastfeeding and lactation support. Gill further explains that whether you’re breastfeeding, chestfeeding, providing expressed human milk for your baby, incorporating formula, or ready to wean; she is there to help provide support, information, and encouragement. Fortunately, families with the Anthem PPO, BCBS PPO, Cigna PPO, or United PPO insurance may be covered and not have to pay for any of the consults. If not covered, the pricing for the services is displayed on the website. 

Unfortunately, Roots to Wings has a limited service area. However, Gill encourages all mothers and families to contact her (via email) as she may be able to travel, or she can give the contact information of a trusted consultant who does serve your area.
