Heather McFadden - Lactation Consultant

Do You Need a Lactation Consultant?

Humans have survived from the beginning of time by breastfeeding. It is a unique relationship. However, both mother and baby have the right to enjoy its rewards. If breastfeeding is not going well, a lactation consultant can help. By listening to the needs of mother and baby I strive to find a plan that works best for my clients.

COVID-19 AND VIRTUAL VISITS - During this time of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, I am offering to do hourly virtual visits. Please contact me through this website for more information. I am still doing home visits for those in need. I am taking extra precautions of using disinfectant wipes to wipe down all items in use when entering your home, wearing gloves and mask for the entire visit, and not performing suck exams of the infant.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment for a private home visit. I make house calls to Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the greater New York City area. I can be reached at 646-221-3147.

I also offer prenatal breastfeeding classes and drop-in breastfeeding support groups. Check those pages for schedules and locations in Manhattan.
