Tatiana Daughtrey Coffman, LMSW, IBCLC
I’m a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I provide support, tools, and resources to help you meet your breastfeeding goals and work through challenges.
I know how overwhelming it can be when a new baby joins the family. It is really confusing when everyone has a different answer to your questions. I help you sort through all the information and come up with a plan that works for you and your baby.
I also offer counseling sessions for parents experiencing postpartum depression, anxiety, or other stresses. I understand, I have been there, and I am here for you. If you need counseling not related to breastfeeding or postpartum, visit here.
I’m here to support you in your goals.

I help families with many topics. If latching your baby is painful, you are worried about your milk supply, you aren’t sure what to do when you go back to work, or you are struggling with thoughts and feelings that concern you and aren’t going away, you do not have to go through it alone!
Do I need a lactation consultant?
If you’re wondering what the heck a lactation consultant does, wonder no more! Many parents have questions and challenges after a new baby joins the family. Some parents have specific concerns while others need reassurance.
Common reasons to schedule a lactation consult:
Low milk production
Tongue tie, lip tie, or other anatomical issues
Returning to work
Slow infant weight gain
baby transitioning from NICU to home
Pumping and expressing milk
Baby fussy at breast
Mastitis or thrush
past breast surgeries
Breastfeeding an adopted baby
