Lactation Consultant in Tampa/Lutz
I am looking for a good lactation consultant. Would be very thankful to hear from those who have had a good experience with one.

Try the Women's Center at St Joe's Hospital. My friend had a great experience there. I know they used to even have pumps you could rent (if needed) but I don't know if they still do. Good luck! Don't give up - nursing is the most rewarding part of motherhood.

Diana Strawbridge ###-###-####. She's an RN at UCH and head of lactation services. She also teaches labor/delivery courses - which is how I met her. She's personable and knowledgable. By the way, UCH is all about breast feeding, so if she's not available you can feel confident in the other nurses. Good Luck.

I called and made an appt. with a lactation consultant at St. Josephs Womens Hospital. I believe it was 25.00 for an hour. She helped me tremendously. She was very in depth with everything and very understanding. I saw her when my daughter was about a week old, and I had started having some problems. I saw a different one while I was in the hospital after giving birth and she was wonderful as well. I think the ladies over there are great. They offered me a lot of help and advice and I was able to breastfeed for over a year, and I'm so glad I did. Check them out!
