Hi there! I’m Arlene, a registered nurse and a Certified Lactation Consultant. For over 25 years, I have worked as a school nurse and dealt with a wide variety of issues within the pediatric population. I now focus solely on new mothers, specifically lactation. I have counseled countless mothers on strategies to effectively breastfeed their newborns and worked to ensure a gratifying and productive experience for both mother and child. I have experience with even the most challenging of cases, including difficulties latching and children with cleft palates. Having breastfed all three of my children, I know the special bond that breastfeeding creates. I look forward to helping you and your child create that special bond.
