I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in private practice. I provide evidence-based care to breastfeeding / chestfeeding / lactating families.
I'm a lactation consultant on wheels: appointments will take place in your home. No babies to bundle up or diaper bags to pack!
I serve families throughout greater Boston, in and around the following towns:
Abington • Allston • Arlington • Ashland • Attleboro • Avon • Back Bay • Belmont • Boston • Braintree • Bridgewater • Brighton • Brockton • Brookline • Cambridge • Canton • Chestnut Hill • Concord • Dedham • Dorchester • Dover • Foxborough • Framingham • Franklin • Hanover • Hingham • Holbrook • Hyde Park • Jamaica Plain • Lexington • Mansfield • Mattapan • Medfield • Medway • Millis • Milton • Natick • Needham • Newton • Norfolk • Norwood • Quincy • Randolph • Raynham • Readville • Rockland • Roslindale • Roxbury • Sharon • Sherborn • Somerville • South Boston • South End • Stoughton • Sudbury • Walpole • Waltham • Watertown • Wayland • Wellesley • Weston • West Roxbury • Westwood • Weymouth • Wrentham
I offer classes and support groups on all things lactation. Many parents wish that they had learned more about breastfeeding before their baby was born. Most people tend to prepare to leave work, prepare the nursery, and prepare for childbirth, but figure that feeding their baby will be a piece of cake. Most of us spend a lot more time nursing than in labor, yet we don't learn what we can about lactation beforehand. The classes are held in a group setting, or you may schedule a private class. Drop-in support groups are available to pregnant and lactating parents. Learning from and observing other parents can be super helpful.
Consider a package deal: a prenatal private class with a postnatal home consultation. Gift certificates for consultations, classes and support group meetings are available! These make great baby shower and new baby gifts!
