Lactation Consultant, Registered Nurse

For more than ten years, Elizabeth has ​offered evidence-based care to new ​mothers, assisting them in achieving their ​feeding objectives. Elizabeth focuses on ​addressing issues such as painful ​breastfeeding, low milk supply, pumping, ​and bottle feeding.

About My Practice

Lactation consultants in private practice play a crucial role in providing ​personalized support to mothers who are breastfeeding or pumping. These ​professionals offer individualized guidance and assistance to address specific ​challenges and concerns that mothers may encounter during their ​breastfeeding journey. By offering one-on-one consultations, lactation ​consultants can tailor their recommendations to the unique needs of each ​mother and baby, ultimately promoting successful breastfeeding and ​pumping experiences.

Private practice lactation consultants are equipped to address a wide range of ​issues, including latch difficulties, low milk supply, engorgement, and nipple ​pain. Their expertise extends to supporting mothers who are exclusively ​pumping or transitioning back to work while continuing to breastfeed. ​Additionally, lactation consultants often provide education on proper ​breastfeeding techniques, breast care, and strategies for maintaining milk ​supply. Through their specialized knowledge and hands-on support, these ​professionals empower mothers to navigate the challenges of breastfeeding ​and pumping with confidence and success. In the following article, we will ​delve deeper into the valuable role of lactation consultants in private practice ​and explore the comprehensive support they offer to mothers seeking to ​optimize their breastfeeding and pumping experience.

Completion of this intake packet reserves your ​appointment time. If your forms are not completed within 24 hours of booking, your appointment slot ​may be forfeited. I am unable to hold appointment slots without completed initial packets due to ​scheduling demands.

Follow up forms: You will receive a shorter follow up form to be completed at least 24 hours before ​your follow up appointment.

It is essential that your form be completed with as much detail as possible as this information is an ​important starting point for the development of your care plan. Please complete each form fully, with ​as much detail as you can provide.


Payment is due at the time of booking your appointment. You may pay with credit or ​debit. You can use your HSA/FSA card to pay for your appointment.

In- Home Visits

If you schedule a home visit, I will share the address of your home with a safety person. This is a ​safety measure for myself. If you are not comfortable giving consent for this, I will be unable to ​visit your home but will be happy to see you via virtual consultation.

Pets can make home appointments difficult because they love their families and want to protect ​them. Whenever possible, please place pets in a room where they will feel secure during our visit. ​If you have outdoor animals that may be loose on your property, please inform me prior to the ​visit.

If your home is difficult to locate, has a gated entrance, or is otherwise difficult to access/enter, ​please inform me prior to the visit.

Privacy Policies

Notice of Privacy Practices for Protected Health Information

45 CFR 164.520 (Download a copy in PDF - PDF)


The HIPAA Privacy Rule gives individuals a fundamental new right to be informed of the privacy practices of their health ​plans and of most of their health care providers, as well as to be informed of their privacy rights with respect to their ​personal health information. Health plans and covered health care providers are required to develop and distribute a ​notice that provides a clear explanation of these rights and practices. The notice is intended to focus individuals on ​privacy issues and concerns, and to prompt them to have discussions with their health plans and health care providers ​and exercise their rights.

How the Rule Works

General Rule. The Privacy Rule provides that an individual has a right to adequate notice of how a covered entity may use ​and disclose protected health information about the individual, as well as his or her rights and the covered entity’s ​obligations with respect to that information. Most covered entities must develop and provide individuals with this notice ​of their privacy practices. The Privacy Rule does not require the following covered entities to develop a notice:

  • Health care clearinghouses, if the only protected health information they create or receive is as a business associate ​of another covered entity. See 45 CFR 164.500(b)(1).
  • A correctional institution that is a covered entity (e.g., that has a covered health care provider component).
  • A group health plan that provides benefits only through one or more contracts of insurance with health insurance ​issuers or HMOs, and that does not create or receive protected health information other than summary health ​information or enrollment or disenrollment information. See 45 CFR 164.520(a).

Content of the Notice. Covered entities are required to provide a notice in plain language that describes:

  • How the covered entity may use and disclose protected health information about an individual.
  • The individual’s rights with respect to the information and how the individual may exercise these rights, including ​how the individual may complain to the covered entity.
  • The covered entity’s legal duties with respect to the information, including a statement that the covered entity is ​required by law to maintain the privacy of protected health information.
  • Whom individuals can contact for further information about the covered entity’s privacy policies.

The notice must include an effective date. See 45 CFR 164.520(b) for the specific requirements for developing the content ​of the notice. A covered entity is required to promptly revise and distribute its notice whenever it makes material ​changes to any of its privacy practices. See 45 CFR 164.520(b)(3), 164.520(c)(1)(i)(C) for health plans, and 164.520(c)(2)​(iv) for covered health care providers with direct treatment relationships with individuals.

Providing the Notice.

  • A covered entity must make its notice available to any person who asks for it.
  • A covered entity must prominently post and make available its notice on any web site it maintains that provides ​information about its customer services or benefits.
  • Health Plans must also:
    • Provide the notice to individuals then covered by the plan no later than April 14, 2003 (April 14, 2004, for small ​health plans) and to new enrollees at the time of enrollment.
    • Provide a revised notice to individuals then covered by the plan within 60 days of a material revision.
    • Notify individuals then covered by the plan of the availability of and how to obtain the notice at least once every ​three years.
  • Covered Direct Treatment Providers must also:
    • Provide the notice to the individual no later than the date of first service delivery (after the April 14, 2003 ​compliance date of the Privacy Rule) and, except in an emergency treatment situation, make a good faith effort to ​obtain the individual’s written acknowledgment of receipt of the notice. If an acknowledgment cannot be ​obtained, the provider must document his or her efforts to obtain the acknowledgment and the reason why it was ​not obtained.
    • When first service delivery to an individual is provided over the Internet, through e-mail, or otherwise ​electronically, the provider must send an electronic notice automatically and contemporaneously in response to ​the individual’s first request for service. The provider must make a good faith effort to obtain a return receipt or ​other transmission from the individual in response to receiving the notice.
    • In an emergency treatment situation, provide the notice as soon as it is reasonably practicable to do so after the ​emergency situation has ended. In these situations, providers are not required to make a good faith effort to ​obtain a written acknowledgment from individuals.
    • Make the latest notice (i.e., the one that reflects any changes in privacy policies) available at the provider’s office ​or facility for individuals to request to take with them, and post it in a clear and prominent location at the ​facility.
  • A covered entity may e-mail the notice to an individual if the individual agrees to receive an electronic notice. See 45 ​CFR 164.520(c) for the specific requirements for providing the notice.

Organizational Options.

  • Any covered entity, including a hybrid entity or an affiliated covered entity, may choose to develop more than one ​notice, such as when an entity performs different types of covered functions (i.e., the functions that make it a health ​plan, a health care provider, or a health care clearinghouse) and there are variations in its privacy practices among ​these covered functions. Covered entities are encouraged to provide individuals with the most specific notice ​possible.
  • Covered entities that participate in an organized health care arrangement may choose to produce a single, joint ​notice if certain requirements are met. For example, the joint notice must describe the covered entities and the ​service delivery sites to which it applies. If any one of the participating covered entities provides the joint notice to ​an individual, the notice distribution requirement with respect to that individual is met for all of the covered entities. ​See 45 CFR 164.520(d).
