Alison Spath, I.B.C.L.C., D.O.N.A.

Alison SpathI began my work in lactation as a La Leche League Leader in the Rochester area in 2008. In this role, I facilitated monthly breastfeeding support groups and offered home visits as a peer counselor. After working as a volunteer in the community for 7 years, I turned my passion for breastfeeding into a career and became a Certified Lactation Counselor in 2015, moving on to become an I.B.C.L.C. in 2018. I continue to work as private practice Lactation Consultant in the community, teaching breastfeeding classes, facilitating a weekly breastfeeding support group and offering home lactation visits. It is a joy and an honor to support breastfeeding families as they work to reach their breastfeeding goals.
