Policy for COVID-19   Updated 3/14/2020 by Donna Bruschi

Breastfeeding is the best way to protect your baby or child during this pandemic. There is no evidence of COVID-19 being transmitted through breastfeeding. Appointments to help breastfeeding challenges are available 7 days a week.

  • Video chat is an under-utilized option. It is a completely safe and confidential way to get breastfeeding help. I recommend it for all families who need breastfeeding advice.
  • In my office, I have taken extra sanitizing measures. This option is low risk due to the nature of my services.
  • At your home, I wash my hands and wear gloves. Most appointments are "no contact" consultations, anyway. If you desire, I will wear a mask.

You started breastfeeding.

Whether intentionally or you thought you'd just give it a try. And then it got complicated.

You realize there's a lot to know and your newborn is depending on you to eat and grow. Fortunately, breastfeeding becomes simple with support and information from a highly skilled International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, an IBCLC.

However you started and whatever your goal, I help you:


  • Overcome the 'Overwhelm' - receive step-by-step, accurate information focused on what you and your baby need right now.

  • Work through Difficulties - There's a way to continue with breastfeeding through almost every challenge.

  • Enjoy Breastfeeding - Breastfeeding is as vital to you as it is to your baby and it should be pleasurable.

  • Discover your style - Every mother & baby has their own ways of learning and bonding through breastfeeding. 


If you’re new to breastfeeding help, or pregnant, you may be wondering, "Is this for me?"

If you would like to ask a question or make an appointment, call or text me: 845-750-4402.

I am here to help you. Continue reading about ways to work with me including classes, support groups, live events, and one-on-one home and office consultations.

Located in New Paltz in New York's Mid-Hudson Valley. It's an easy drive from Poughkeepsie, Rhinebeck, Kingston, Middletown, Newburgh, and Beacon, NY. I offer in-home visits in Dutchess, Orange, Ulster and Sullivan County. Rates here.

I've helped thousands of women learn the womanly art of breastfeeding. In my experience, prompt professional support helps you feel confident nursing your baby.
