In home Lactation Consult

No need for you to pack up your baby and head out- Let me come to you! I will review your history and address your concerns. After weighing your baby and observing a complete feeding, we will make an individualized feeding plan together. A report will be sent to the pediatrician with your approval. Follow-up consults are available at a discounted rate.

Office or Virtual Consult

If you prefer to come to an office setting, appointments are available at South Shore Perinatal Wellness Center in Norwell on Wednesdays.

Virtual is another option. I will send you specific instructions of how to prepare for that appointment.


Expecting a baby or babies? I will teach you some basics, setting the groundwork to meet your infant feeding goals.

Getting ready to return to work? Let me help you plan for success! Contact me by phone or email to schedule a class.

Classes are held at South Shore Perinatal Wellness Center, Norwell, MA


“Lynne is a life (breast) saver. I was struggling with intense breastfeeding pain while nursing my 4 week old. Knowing how important it was to be hands on, she conducted an in person visit wearing all proper PPE. She guided my husband and me through effective tips and tricks to improve our daughter’s latch and relieve pain. She has been available by email for minor follow up questions and was equipped with a plethora of resources to help us continue to build our bond with our newborn. I highly recommend her!!!”

“Lynne is amazing! I called her at 930 am and she was able to fit me in for a same day appointment. Even though I have two other children that were exclusively breastfed, I needed a refresher and was worried about poor latch and clogged milk ducts. Lynne was excellent; she is professional, knowledgeable and very personable. During our visit she checked my son’s latch, showed me how to use my new breast pump, and most importantly alleviated many concerns and boosted my confidence. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for help.”
