About me

Hello Mamas! I am Ashley and I am so glad that you have found my lactation profile. I am a caring and compassionate lactation consultant that was inspired to enter lactation consulting after my first failed attempt to breastfeed my oldest daughter. After diving into breastfeeding education, I successfully breastfed my youngest son for sixteen months with the help of an amazing lactation consultant (see, even lactation consultants need lactation consultants). In 2020, I completed a Doctorate of Public Health degree where my research focused on breastfeeding success. For the past six years, I have been working in higher education, while volunteering for a breastfeeding organization. In September of 2020, I sat for and passed the IBCLC exam. I am also a certified lactation educator and provide prenatal educational classes. I am originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania and currently reside in Brooklyn, New York with my husband and two children. Being in NYC, I do have some favorite places including the MET and the American Museum of Natural History (because it’s my daughter's favorite).

Service introduction

As an IBCLC I offer both in-home and virtual lactation consultation visits. During these visits, we will cover several different aspects of breastfeeding and answer any questions you may have. I also offer prenatal breastfeeding educational courses. There are several handouts and hands-on education that will help you get the most out of the prenatal session.
