Lactation Consultants

One of our Certified Nurse Practitioners,Tammy Corsa, has a special interest in providing lactation consulting services to our new mothers who may be experiencing difficulties with breast feeding. Breast feeding isn’t always easy for every mother, and most new moms could use some advice in this area. Tammy will help determine the issue at hand and give you suggestions that help address the breast feeding difficulties. Potential problems include incorrect latching, inability to latch, painful latch or feedings, improper positioning or holds, inverted nipples, and ineffective transfer of milk. Tammy can also help with pumping concerns and breast milk storage. If you feel that you would benefit from further assistance, we can also refer you to Best Beginnings, a local company that specializes in assisting mothers with breast feeding concerns. If you would like to schedule an appointment with Tammy for lactation assistance, please call our office and request a 45-minute consult when making the appointment. It is helpful to schedule the appointment, if possible, during a regular feeding time so Tammy can assess any issues while you feed your baby in the room. Breast milk provides the best nutrition for your infant, and breast feeding can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience once it is mastered.
