Nest Collaborative, a telehealth platform specializing in lactation support, has recently completed a $6 million Series A funding round, bringing its total funding to over $10 million. This investment, led by Altitude Ventures and supported by Bread & Butter Ventures, Carnrite Ventures, Connecticut Innovations, Hustle Fund, and Wavemaker 360, underscores the growing recognition of the essential role lactation support plays in maternal and infant health.

Operating 365 days a year, Nest Collaborative ensures that families can receive timely assistance, often within hours of recognizing the need. The company’s comprehensive approach to lactation support encompasses acute and preventive care, as well as education for prenatal and postpartum parents. Remarkably, Nest Collaborative’s services are covered by over 250 insurance plans, making expert support accessible without out-of-pocket costs for most national payers.

Since inception Nest Collaborative’s approach to lactation support has already made a significant impact, with over 50,000 consultations delivered to date. Nest Collaborative CEO Judith Nowlan shares: “Our incredible IBCLCs have witnessed transformative changes in some of the most challenging circumstances and here’s the best part—Nest Collaborative accepts over 250 different insurance plans nationwide. Moms receive expert care without any out-of-pocket expenses. It’s a win-win-win situation for everyone involved!”

Nowlin also highlights the company’s role in supporting health systems, hospitals, and practice groups, by providing a valuable service that complements the care provided by OB-GYNs, midwives, and pediatricians. She notes that Nest Collaborative not only offers immediate support throughout the breastfeeding journey but also bridges the gap between healthcare providers and families, ensuring a continuum of care that is both comprehensive and personalized.

Nest Collaborative will use the fresh funds to scale operations, expand into new markets, and continue advancing its offering.
