Rachel O’Brien, MA, IBCLC
I am an IBCLC with my master’s degree in human lactation, and I provide families with real life, guilt-free lactation and breastfeeding support and education. My services include home visits, classes, and support groups. Using the TummyTime!™ Method as part of my lactation services helps babies and parents to breastfeed and bottle-feed better, along with a myriad of other benefits- it’s a win win! TummyTime!™ Method group classes will be starting soon in the Boston MetroWest area, check my website for updates or feel free to contact me for more information.
