About Lorna

I am a nurse practitioner who has been helping new mothers in Stamford for 22 years–19 of them as an IBCLC board certified lactation consultant. I taught obstetrics in the Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Program at Columbia University School of Nursing, and I previously worked as a nurse practitioner in the office of Dr. Christina Smillie, a pediatrician who specializes in breastfeeding medicine. In addition, I worked for eight years as a nursery and postpartum nurse before going back to school to get my second master’s and become an NP.

I authored an Arco test preparation book for practical nurses taking their NCLEX certification exam, and my research on hospital breastfeeding management was published in the Journal of Perinatal Education. I recently wrote an article in the Expectant Mothers Guide to Connecticut Planning to Breastfeed?

I practice in the Stamford Area doing home lactation consults and have made over 4000 visits to new mothers since starting Lactation Services in 2002.

Last but not least, I am married and the proud mother of four breastfed children. We have lived in Stamford for 33 years.

  • Lorna was a godsend. Michael was losing weight and no one at the hospital was able to help him to latch on. She got him started breastfeeding and then showed me how to do it myself. He’s now gaining an ounce a day. Marlene Ferguson
