Lactating parents need additional support for their nursling, may have questions, or need direct help latching their babies. Allie MacAdams is a Certified Lactation Counselor and finishing her contact hours to sit for the exam to become an IBCLC. She is able to assess for an appropriate latch, tongue ties, adequate weight gain, milk transfer with weighted feeds, difficult feeders, and many more questions that keep parents up at night. A detailed exam will be performed in the office and each visit is tailored to the dyad’s feeding questions or problems. She has specifically helped mothers who have dealt with shallow latch, bleeding or cracked nipples, poor milk transfer, low infant weight gain, exclusive pumpers, tandem feeders, breast infections, or breast augmentation. Each breastfeeding journey is unique and she aims to help lactating parents achieve their breastfeeding goals.
