Breastfeeding can be hard, but it doesn't have to be.
I can help you!
As a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in Sudbury, Massachusetts, I meet you where you are (literally- I come to your house!) and provide you with the lactation and breastfeeding support and tools you need. Whether you are expecting a baby or having trouble nursing, pumping, or weaning, I can help- after all, breastfeeding only works if it’s working for both parent and baby.
I work with families of all kinds, and I can help your family, too.
I offer a range of lactation services in your home (in and around Sudbury, MA including Framingham, Natick, Marlborough and Waltham) as well as phone, email and text follow-up and reports to your health care provider about your visit. At the end of the visit I’ll give you a 48 hour care plan to follow and a combined superbill/receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
My clients call me for help with lots of breastfeeding problems, like...
