Hi! My name is Catherine Roy, and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I can help you with any of your breastfeeding concerns.
I’ll tell you a little about myself. I grew up here on Cape Cod in the town of Sandwich. I’ve been a Medical Assistant for almost eight years and currently work at an OB/GYN office. I love being a Medical Assistant and the medical field in general, but when I had my son I was inspired to take my career in a new direction.
So, Why Lactation Consulting?
I had such a hard time with breastfeeding. But, after a lot of hard work, I was able to breastfeed my son for fourteen months. I experienced so many difficulties including low supply, troubles latching, mastitis, clogged ducts and the list goes on! I went to see a Lactation Consultant who was a godsend. I realized that this was my calling and something I could do to help other moms.
My favorite quote: “It takes a village to raise a child.”
