Compassionate Breastfeeding Support
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in private practice serving Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens, I provide compassionate, evidence based breastfeeding support in the comfort of your own home. My approach seeks to aide and support mothers in achieving their own breastfeeding goals, while educating and empowering woman to make the best choices for themselves and their babies.
My care is tailored to the individual needs of each mother/baby couple. After an in depth assessment of both mother and baby, as well as careful consideration of the goals and needs expressed by mom, together we devise a plan that is both manageable and enjoyable.
I divide my time between private consultations, teaching private and group prenatal breastfeeding classes, and facilitating breastfeeding and new mom support groups.
Heather Mullen has been working with postpartum mothers and baby for the past six years. She spent two years studying with some of the masters in lactation in New York City, first during her eighteen month internship at Mt. Sinai Hospital then in the field as she shadowed some of the best IBCLCs in private practice today. Heather has also been La Leche League Leader, and a Certified Postpartum Doula. It is this extensive training as well as her own experience as a nursing mother that informs her deep understanding of the challenges many new mother’s face as they try to find their way in the first overwhelming, exhausting days of motherhood.
