Providing in-person, hands-on clinical breastfeeding assistance, information, and support.
Natalie Dorman Gasser, IBCLC, RLC
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Mothers often need professional assistance and support to meet their breastfeeding goals. Seeking and finding the right help is the first step. There are plenty of books, blogs, discussion boards, and other resources on breastfeeding -- some are helpful, but many do not have accurate information. You may need in-person, hands-on help and support not offered on paper or online.
My practice is centered in Wauwatosa, Brookfield, Elm Grove and West Allis for home visits. I also may serve families in their own homes in the surrounding areas, with a travel time of up to 20 minutes. Whether I can make a home visit is based on my schedule and on the time it takes me to get there, rather than the specific city or town.
Please give me your FULL street address with zip code when contacting me for an appointment.
I am a private practice, international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC), registered lactation consultant (RLC). According to the Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding, IBCLCs are "the only health care professionals certified in lactation management... Like all other U.S. certification boards for health care professionals, the IBLCE operates under the direction of the U.S. National Commission for Certifying Agencies and maintains rigorous professional standards. IBCLC candidates must demonstrate sufficient academic preparation as well as experience in supervised, direct consultation on breastfeeding to be eligible to take the certification exam."
IBCLCs are "registered" because you can look them up and make sure they hold the credential: Registry. You can search for me under "Gasser" or my certification number, L-21491.
