Our goal is to support a positive and rewarding breastfeeding experience for both mother and baby. We offer one-on-one breastfeeding visits to prevent and solve breastfeeding problems. During these visits our lactation specialist, Michelle Popoli, DNP, FNP-C, APRN, CLC, will take a thorough maternal/newborn history, discuss concerns about breastfeeding, observe a feeding, and develop a plan for success to help mothers achieve their personal breastfeeding goals. Common concerns include sore nipples, difficulty with latching, milk supply, and weaning. Whether you are new to breastfeeding or have breastfed before, we can help with any questions, concerns, or challenges.
