Lora’s Lactation Philosophy

Everyone’s lactation journey looks different, and my goal is to support your vision of the ideal infant feeding plan that works for you and your baby. I want to empower you to reach the goals you set, while providing consistent, evidenced-based lactation care, while also supporting you emotionally, with the help of your family and friends, during the early days of parenthood.

Lora’s Experience

As a former hospital RN, having worked in the NICU, Labor & Delivery and Postpartum, I knew I wanted more influence over my patients’ care and, thus, became a dual certified Women’s Health and Family Nurse Practitioner. With over 20 years of nursing experience, many of those spent assisting with lactation journeys, I have worked with a myriad of new and growing families. In 2015, I helped launch one of only a few Nationally Certified Breastfeeding Centers near my hometown in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. Since the onset of the COVID19 pandemic, I have realized just how difficult obtaining lactation care and education are for many families who do not want to leave the comfort of their own home, thus the birth of lactation telehealth. Having attended Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA for my Bachelor of Science with a major in Nursing degree and Drexel University for Masters in Nursing with my Women’s Health/Gender Related Nurse Practitioner, I learned to evaluate the science and apply my research to patient care. Wanting to be able to care for the babies, led me to a Post Masters’ Certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Recently, I enrolled in Pennsylvania State University’s Doctoral of Nursing Practice Program, where I am completing some research on lactation care. I am also the mother of three wonderful children, all who had different breastfeeding journeys. They taught me the patience I offer each of my patients during a non-rushed, evidence-based, compassionate consultation. I enjoy teaching, and perhaps those children taught me that also. I look forward to being your chosen provider for lactation care and education.
