She is a NYS Licensed and Registered Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Tamara brings twenty years of expertise as a Maternity Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner, and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant to deliver classes and programs that blend holistic knowledge and clinical care for families and their babies.
Tamara offers insight and advice that is data-driven, educationally sound, but most importantly, empowerment focused. With Lactation House Calls, parents soon realize that their success is not determined by epidurals or pumped ounces, but rather by the power that comes with honing their intuition and simply flowing and flourishing with their babies.
Home and Home Office visits are offered in Bergen County NJ and Manhattan. Visits include maternal physical exam including b/p, weight and temperature check, cesarean incision and extremity swelling assessment, full physical assessment of newborn including symmetry of face and head, function, and appearance of the tongue, examination of infant's suck and milk intake during breastfeeding. A written plan is made alongside parents to meet their goals. Experience in twins, tongue tie, low milk supply, nipple and breasts infections, weaning, exclusive pumping, inducing lactation and anything in between.
Insurance is not accepted for home visits with Lactation House Calls. For insurance covered visits see https://www.storkandcradle.com
