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...

When I sit down with my breastfeeding support group families or talk with parents at their home visit, I find that I’m spending much more time discussing stress and anxiety than I used to. Stress and breastfeeding have become a conversation topic during most of

If you’d like to follow along in order, please start at part 1: research and then continue to part 2: breastfeeding data before starting on this post. Pediatricians and Breastfeeding: what do they
I spent two years writing my Masters thesis on low milk supply, and now I’m translating that thesis into a series of blog posts. If you’d like to follow along in order, please start at low milk supply series, part 1: research. Note: If you’re not big into survey data, your eyes may glaze over
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I did my Masters degree on U.S. mothers and low milk supply. When I started my research I thought there must be studies out there that would show exactly how many families deal with low supply. I expected to unearth some sort of perfect algorithm. My ultimate goal was
