Hi! I'm Shelly Taft

I’m a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Doula, and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Based in Worcester County, MA, I’ve been supporting new families in Massachusetts and Rhode Island since 2007.

I know that every parent is different, so I don’t believe in a cookie-cutter approach to lactation help. I will work with you to develop a breastfeeding plan that works for your life and your family.

I’ve supported more than a thousand families in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and I’d be honored to help you, too.
