Our vision is that families will have the professional high quality breastfeeding support that will enable them to meet their unique feeding goals. We are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants and Registered Nurses with extensive experience in home care, hospital, and pediatric office, preterm babies and multiples. We provide home visit lactation consults to families on the South Shore and Southeastern Massachusetts.
We have been friends and colleagues for over a decade, working together at a local community hospital. One evening, we were out having dinner and talked about the lack of breastfeeding support in the community. We decided to enter into private practice offering families prenatal education and lactation consults in the comfort of their own homes. We provide the support that is desperately needed to support families. As mothers ourselves, we recognize the importance of continued breastfeeding support.
Common issues we can help with:
- Engorgement, plugged ducts and mastitis
- Breast pain or nipple pain/damage
- Latch and positioning challenges
- Milk supply issues
- Weight gain issues
- Pumping, returning to work, weaning
