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. In 2009, I became certified as an IBCLC. I work with families in their homes, in hospitals, birth centers, schools, Baby Cafes and other community settings.
My focus is home visits and prenatal breastfeeding classes. Consistent, timely support is important for all families. It's especially important in the first two weeks. I actively advocate for all families to have access to IBCLC care.
Feel free to call. 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.
