Meet Lori Atkins, RN, IBCLC
How can she help you meet your infant feeding goals?
My name is Lori Atkins, and I'm a Registered Nurse, as well as an Lactation Consultant, IBCLC, in Connecticut. Attending my best friends' birth many years ago led me to fall in love with Women’s Health. My long and varied expertise includes excelling as a Labor and Delivery RN at a large city hospital, running an obstetrical clinic, teaching all kinds of Childbirth and Breastfeeding education, and creating, as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, a comprehensive, hospital-wide breast pump program.
In-hospital breastfeeding care is so important for new parents, but I always am frustrated for families if they struggle, coming home, with finding the support they need when breastfeeding problems are more common. I have created Oh, Baby! with love, compassion and knowledge to help you meet your breastfeeding goals.
