Partnering with SimpliFed Resource Guide
Do you have a patient that needs breastfeeding or baby feeding support? This toolkit offers resources for providers and staff to easily refer to SimpliFed’s allied health baby feeding support professionals.
Below you'll find fast, easy ways to get in touch, quick links to refer to us, further background on SimpliFed, FAQs, and more.
Summary of SimpliFed
SimpliFed provides virtual inclusive breastfeeding and baby feeding support fully covered by health plans at no cost to your patients from pregnancy to weaning. Healthcare systems or individual practices refer to our baby feeding experts (NPs, IBCLCs, and RNs) who complement in-person care and as needed, refer patients back to in-person services. Our specialists improve patient access while increasing in-person clinic capacity and affirming trusted relationships with parents (we have an NPS that is greater than 90). Your patients will benefit from increased breastfeeding rates and improved perinatal health outcomes.
We help parents develop their baby feeding skills and confidence around breastfeeding, pumping, formula feeding, using donor milk, and/or combination feeding. We can also help with concerns about supply, latching, nipple pain, and clogged ducts - just to name a few top issues.
We love to start working with patients during pregnancy to provide baby feeding education and learn about their feeding goals. Once the baby is born, we continue to meet with patients virtually throughout the baby feeding journey. SimpliFed’s approach complements in-person care and improves provider capacity by supporting parents with specialized baby feeding services centered on each family’s unique needs. Some parents are struggling with latching or supply and others have questions about pump schedules, weaning, transitioning back to work, or need help choosing a formula or understanding combo feeding. We trust parents to make the best decisions for their families along their baby feeding journey, and we are here to support and encourage them, free of judgment.
