 Lori is a highly valued colleague. I have worked with her both directly and indirectly and have conferred with her repeatedly. I highly value her experience, because she has worked with mothers and babies at various ages and in different settings. Read more from Bonnie


Lori helped me tremendously with problems I had breastfeeding my son, and I would definitely recommend her to help with any breastfeeding problems. Not only is she extremely supportive, but she is an expert in her field.                   Read more from Jenn


My husband and I were very emotional about the fact that our new son was not latching on to my nipple and we were unable to breastfeed. Thankfully, Lori was our consultant in the hospital. Not only was she patient and understanding, she correctly diagnosed the problem within a few minutes.       Read more from Amy

As a lactation consultant in private practice, Lori J. Isenstadt, IBCLC will provide the mother with a visual and hands on breastfeeding assessment.  Lori will listen to your concerns, assess baby’s oral anatomy, your breast anatomy, and observe latch.  A full feeding will be observed.
During this feeding, latch and positions adjustments will be made as necessary with mother having plenty of opportunity to practice latching her baby on. While your baby is feeding, questions will be answered regarding normal newborn breastfeeding behavior.
Once feeding is complete, Lori will measure intake at breast using a Medela Baby Weigh scale.  Based on observations noted during this consult, a written care plan will be given for moms to take home and refer to.  The visit with the lactation consultant typically lasts 1 – 1 ½ hours.

Mothers generally feel a sense of relief knowing that they have met with an experienced professional who will be working with them to correct their breastfeeding problems.  Typically any pain they have been suffering with, is greatly reduced by the end of their initial consult.  The lactation consultant will give the mother a care plan which will further reduce their pain over a short time.

Mothers leave a consult feeling assured and confident in their ability to breastfeed their baby.  They receive consistent, current and evidence based research regarding breastfeeding.  Please see link for testimonials to read what other mothers have stated about their consult.

Once home with a new baby, parents often have numerous questions related to breastfeeding.  Parents are encouraged to bring a list of written questions, which will be discussed during the course of the consult.  The consult provides an excellent opportunity for you to receive current information in a relaxed atmosphere.

Lori knows that mothers are most successful when they are able to receive continued help for a short time after the initial consult. For this reason, you are strongly encouraged to take full advantage of the excellent follow-up opportunities offered.  Your case will remain open for 2 weeks after your initial consult. During this time you can call or email Lori for additional follow-up questions and to report progress. Approximately  85% of the problems are fixed in less than 2 weeks.  If you require additional help after 2 weeks, Lori will recommend that you schedule a follow-up appointment.

A comprehensive report of your consult will be sent to your doctor, upon your request only.  This will enable your doctor to be kept informed of your initial concern and of your progress.
