Paula Fitt RNC, IBCLC​

My Mission - To help mothers meet their breastfeeding goals using the most up to date research and warmly supportive techniques. 

My Background - I have been a registered nurse residing in Northwestern New Jersey since 1997.  My nursing work has included postpartum care, labor and delivery, high risk anti-partum, perinatology, and patient education.  I have worked in tertiary care centers, as well as a local community hospital.  My lactation experience includes hospital based lactation services, as well as, private practice.  I am experienced in caring for breastfeeding multiples, induced lactation, exclusive pumping and bottle feeding, infant weight loss issues, and cleft lip and palate infants.

"I was less successful than I had hoped with breastfeeding my first son, Paula was understanding and compassionate about the way I felt.  She gave me the guidance and skills to breastfeed my second son with pure confidence and joy."
