Welcome

If you are a breastfeeding mother, I can help you. I am a nurse practitioner, lactation consultant and mother of four who has worked with nursing moms for the past fifteen years. I make home visits to new mothers who are having problems with latch on, engorgement, sore nipples, plugged ducts, mastitis, low (or high) milk supply. I can also help with a sleepy baby, fussy/colicky baby, baby with slow weight gain or problems with overly frequent, prolonged feedings. These visits are covered by the same insurance that covers your prenatal care. Prescription medications may be ordered as needed.

"Dear Lorna, This is a very belated thank you, but the timing seems appropriate. On Monday my daughter and I will achieve a major milestone – 6 months of successful breastfeeding. It was very important to me to breastfeed for at least 6 months, but when my daughter was 7 weeks old, I was in so much pain that I did not think we would be able to achieve this goal. Fortunately, that is when Dr. Cahill recommended that I call you. The protocol and encouragement you provided allowed me to continue to breastfeed – and to grow to love it! Now I think I will even continue to breastfeed for another 6 months! Thank you so much for your help. You are a gifted practitioner!"
