Sarah was inspired to become a Lactation Consultant after she experienced her own breastfeeding challenges. In order to become a Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Sarah trained under Freda Rosenfeld and other well known lactation consultants in New York. Sarah taught group classes and was responsible helping the new moms at Long Island College Hospital in downtown Brooklyn 2010-2012. In July 2012 she took the International Board Of Lactation Examination. My aim is to help moms achieve their breastfeeding goals.
Originally from Melbourne Australia, Sarah moved to Brooklyn, New York in 2007. She has two children, Ella and Tzvi. Ella was breastfeed until 5 months old when Sarah had the realization her milk was diminishing. Two weeks later she found out she was expecting her second child . Tzvi was exclusively breastfeed until 2 years old (solids introduced when Tzvi showed signs). With this experience Sarah understands the challenges of exclusively breastfeed babies as well as bottle and breastfeed.
Currently Sarah has her own thriving private practice in Brooklyn, New York. Offering one on one consultations, childbirth classes and prenatal breastfeeding classes. She is currently accepting new AETNA patients for in-office visits.
