I provide you with the support and breastfeeding or chestfeeding help you need to meet your nursing goals, without guilt or judgement.

As a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in Sudbury, Massachusetts, I meet you where you are (literally- I come to your house!) and provide you with the lactation and breastfeeding support and tools you need.  Whether you are expecting a baby or having trouble nursing, pumping, or weaning, I can help- after all, breastfeeding only works if it's working for both parent and baby!

Whether you are dealing with sore or cracked bleeding nipples, worried about either low milk supply or oversupply, working to get your baby to stop using a nipple shield,  confused about pumping breastmilk when you return to work, dealing with poor advice from family or friends, curious about whether your child may have a tongue tie or lip tie, or just concerned that your baby is nursing all the time, I can help you.  I offer a range of lactation services in your home (within 10 miles of Sudbury, MA) as well as phone, email and text follow-up and reports to your health care provider about your visit.  When our visit concludes I will provide you with a 48 hour care plan to follow as well as a combined superbill/receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Your breastfeeding consultation with Rachel will empower you with evidence-based lactation knowledge and techniques that will have a positive impact on your nursing relationship.

“Thank you for your time, expertise, and kindness.  I have no doubts that you gave me a continued nursing relationship with my son when I was sure it was ending.  I am forever grateful for the gift you have given us.”


“I am in such a better place now than I was a couple of weeks ago.  I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest (and no, it’s not because I just finished pumping the supply that had been building all day!) and it’s really because of you.  Thank you for everything you have done.  Please let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you!  I am indebted to you, and thank you from the bottom of my very full, fulfilled heart.”


“Rachel is a lifesaver. She has counseled me through two babies and through my breastfeeding ups and downs. Rachel was so patient with me through my thousands of questions and many mental breakdowns. For someone who had no idea about breastfeeding at first I am now successfully breastfeeding my 3 month old baby thanks to Rachel. I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through either one of my babies’ first few months without her. I highly recommend anyone who is having questions, issues, or who is even curious about breastfeeding to contact Rachel. She is absolutely amazing!”


“Rachel, you are the reason I breastfed my third baby for one year…  I never would have made it without your help.”
