About Susan

Susan is the mother of three children and originally from Los Angeles, California. She moved to the East Coast in 1987 to attend graduate school in New York City. In 1998, she became an accredited La Leche League Leader in Connecticut and helped to start a La Leche League (breastfeeding support) Group in West Hartford. In 2002, after extensive training and studying, she became an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) and has re-certified in 2007, 2012 and most recently in 2017.

Susan is available to help with all your breastfeeding needs either in your home or in her office to help plan your breastfeeding journey with a group or one-to-one pre-natal consult, post-partum visit after your baby or babies arrive, returning to work and all other breastfeeding related concerns.

Testimonials

"Breastfeeding my newborn was painful before I called Susan.  She is a knowledgeable coach who provides guilt-free, no-nonsense lactation advice with the goal of keeping baby fed and mom relaxed and happy.  With her many years of experience and connections with other traditional and alternative health care providers, Susan identified a more complicated issue with my son and referred me to others who helped solve the problem.  She is a godsend!"
