    Meet Lori Atkins, RN, IBCLC, RLC

    Lori has been a Maternal Child Health RN for 27 years. She is experienced with inpatient and outpatient care, labor and delivery at Hartford Hospital, and lactation services at St Francis. She has been in Breastfeeding Private Practice since 2015.

    Lori believes in-hospital breastfeeding care is so important for new parents, but is frustrated for families if they struggle to find the support they need after coming home, when breastfeeding problems are more common. That is why she started her practice to help patients with a range of issues associated with breastfeeding including:

    • Slow or poor weight gain issues
    • Nipple pain and help with latch
    • Assessment and plans of care for infant tongue-tie (ankyloglossia)
    • Women with a history of breast surgery
    • Exclusive or partial breastmilk pumping/ feeding situations
    • Breastmilk supply challenges
    • Adoptive or inducing non-birth parent lactation
    • Basic and complex breastfeeding management
    • Supporting all family structures, specializing in LGBT family care, surrogate and gestational carrier consultations
    • Preemie infant feeding management
    • Knowledge in the care of grieving parents who’ve lost their babies through stillbirth or neonatal death
    • Human milk bank donation
    • Breast pumping and individualized feeding plans as parents transition back to work

    Lori sees patients in Starling’s Bloomfield office on select days and hours. Call (860) 246-4029 to schedule a visit.
