ABOUT LAURA COULTER

I became passionate about more holistic approaches to maternal/infant healthcare when I worked in a large physician-run home birth practice in Chicago as a certified nurse-midwife. I witnessed these methods naturally support not only the birth process but the breastfeeding process as well. During this time, I also worked as a home health nurse providing home phototherapy to jaundiced newborns.
With the birth of my second child in 1999 I found myself with a 2 y/o who was still happily nursing, and I knew nothing about how tandem nursing worked. This is when I discovered La Leche League (LLL). With LLL, I learned much more about the normal course of breastfeeding, introduction of solids, and even parenting choices, and wished I had found them sooner.

Like many lactation consultants, my path to career began with my own personal breastfeeding experiences with all three of my children.It was through this journey of learningas a breastfeeding mother, and furthering my education in my field that inspired me to become an IBCLC. While I found breastfeeding to be mostly easy and greatly rewarding for both myself and my children, I experienced some challenges along the way that I could have avoided with the expertise of a lactation consultant. This has driven my passion to bring my knowledge to new mothers so they do not have to experience the same struggles and difficulties that myself and so many women go through.

TESTIMONIALS

Yui P.

Laura is one of the most caring, concerned and knowledgeable practitioners we have ever encountered. After meeting with Laura, I was more confident, had a plan of attack and my child was feeding better. I encountered additional challenges along the way and every time, Laura was there without hesitation.

I would recommend Laura to anyone struggling with breastfeeding... Laura is truly awesome!.

Laura will get you to your breastfeeding goal. I feel like I wasted 2-1/2 weeks and lots of money out of pocket . . . all to hear specialists say “maybe your son wasn’t meant to breastfeed”. Laura’s knowledge about breastfeeding difficulties far surpassed any other doctor or specialist we saw.

She immediately knew what it would take for my son to breastfeed. In addition to being a wonderful lactation consultant, she is also a kind, sincere and wonderful support person.
