Diane Lawley, RN, CLC, CD, PCD (DONA)

Specialty: Family Medicine

Certified Lactation Counselor (Healthy Children’s Center for Breastfeeding)

My goal is to assist birthing families to understand the wonderful benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby, to facilitate the initiation of breastfeeding comfortably and to be successful in reaching their breastfeeding goals. The mother and baby sometimes need help along the way and I would love to be a resource for you!

For the past 14 years I have been assisting families through their birth and breastfeeding experiences as a certified birth and postpartum doula and for the past year as a certified lactation counselor. I also bring 35 years of experience as an RN having worked in pediatric nursing and research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. I am proud to say that I successfully breastfed my 2 wonderful children for over a year and am now the proud Grandmother of a beautiful, healthy, formerly breastfed toddler.

Here’s a link to an article Alexis Lieberman and I wrote together about our innovative collaboration in promoting breastfeeding.
