About the Provider

My name is Dani! I'm originally from the Bronx, New York but currently reside in New Haven, CT. I am a wife and mother of three amazing children, all of whom I've breastfed. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse in the State of New York and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I am currently in private practice and recently was hired as a per diem Certified Lactation Consultant at Manchester Memorial Hospital.

For the past three years I have assisted hundreds of families in the under-served community of New Haven, helping them to reach their breast/chest feeding goals. After having breastfed my own children, I was recruited to work as a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor in November 2018. I was able to see the value of my role considering that I had no help of my own when breastfeeding my children. Being exposed to the lack of support available to African American moms was a huge motivating factor for me starting my practice. My work focuses on providing access to quality breastfeeding education and individualized support specific to your situation. I believe in taking a collaborative approach to improve the overall care of my clients.

I provide prenatal breastfeeding classes/consults and postpartum support virtually and in-home. I service all of New Haven, Fairfield, Hartford, and Middlesex Counties in CT and Westchester County in NY for home visits. I'm excited to share this journey with you and look forward to assisting you with your feeding goals. You can do this!
