Comprehensive Small Business Insurance for Lactation Consultants

Protect your consulting business effortlessly and affordably with Insurance Canopy. It’s lactation consultant insurance made simple!

Do Lactation Consultants Need Insurance?

Lactation consultants offer essential support to new moms and babies, guiding them through breastfeeding and addressing any related issues. Yet, there’s always a chance of things going south during consultations. Lactation consultant insurance steps in to shield you from any blame if something goes wrong, like providing incorrect advice that could harm the mother or baby. It’s not just about protection—insurance for lactation consultants also helps with financial support in case legal issues arise from client claims.

Having insurance is a must for lactation consultants, ensuring that you can keep offering your services while keeping potential risks in check.

How Much Does Lactation Consultants Insurance Cost?

Our lactation consultant insurance policy starts at $229 a year or $21.08 a month. The cost can vary depending on the following factors:

  • Your business’s gross income
  • Selected coverages
  • Coverage limits

The Ideal Coverage for Lactation Consultants

Our specialized insurance solutions ensure every aspect of your lactation consulting practice is covered with precision and care.

General Liability Insurance

General liability insurance safeguards you from the financial strain of third-party bodily injury and property damage claims in your lactation consulting practice.

Real-life situations could include a client tripping over your equipment or damage occurring to their property during a consultation. Given the potential costs, it’s crucial to take precautions in your lactation consulting business.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions, for lactation consultants, protects you from the cost of claims that stem from your business operations. Common scenarios for lactation consultants may involve a client taking legal action due to false advertising, misinformation, or faulty professional advice.

Need More Coverage?

Cyber Liability Insurance

Cyber liability insurance can provide protection from cyber security attacks and cyber security breaches. If you store any client information online on a tablet, mobile phone, or laptop, we highly recommend this insurance.

Tools and Equipment Insurance

Tools and equipment insurance is a form of inland marine insurance that covers goods transported on land. This extends essential protection to your lactation consulting equipment. Common claims may involve damage to your equipment during storage flooding, and this insurance ensures coverage for repair or replacement in such instances.

 Additional Insureds

Adding additional insureds to your policy extends protection to rented and other locations where you provide lactation consulting services. This safeguards against the costs of accidents caused by you or your clientele. It’s common practice to include property owners and event organizers as additional insureds, and this can be seamlessly accommodated in your policy.
