I live north of Boston and travel about a 30-40 minute range from Melrose. Call anyhow, I might just be in your area.
My first professional role with mothers and babies was as a certified childbirth educator. I taught childbirth classes for twenty years and was an active DONA certified doula for ten years. Seeing families in labor and at home, I valued that continuity of care. It was clear what a difference it made to have consistent and thorough breastfeeding support especially in the first two weeks. That was my inspiration and In 2009, I became certified as an IBCLC.
My focus is home visits and prenatal breastfeeding classes. I work with all families: in their homes, in hospitals, birth centers, schools, Baby Cafes and other community settings.
I actively advocate for all families in Massachusetts to have access to IBCLC care.
Feel free to call, the sooner the better. Anytime you have a question is the right time to ask.
I'm a current member of ILCA, USLCA and MLCA, the international, national and state Lactation Consultants Associations.
I look forward to talking with you.
