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.

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’m usually available on short notice, including evenings, weekends, and holidays. After all, babies don’t check the calendar!

When I’m not doing home visits for breastfeeding help, I work as a lactation consultant at UMASS Memorial Hospital in Worcester. You can also find me teaching childbirth, breastfeeding, and TummyTime! classes at various hospitals and sites in Worcester County, MA

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