About Me

I am a proud mom of 3 awesome children. I have been an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant ( IBCLC) since 2011. When I had my son in 2005, I really struggled. A week after he was born we moved from the Poconos to Philadelphia. Nothing was easy, and everything was scary! It wasn’t until I was able to leave the house and attend a Nursing Moms meeting that things started to turn around and I truly started enjoying breastfeeding and being a mom. I knew I wanted to do something to help other moms, so I became a volunteer counselor with the group . After a couple of years in this capacity I knew I wanted to do even more, so I started studying and eventually became an IBCLC! I am here so that you don’t have to go through the 4th Trimester alone! Want to learn more? Contact me today for an initial consultation.

What My Clients Have to Say

When I first had my son I hesitated reaching out to a lactation consultant mostly bc idk if I needed one...but then I came across Vicky! She has always been nothing but absolutely amazing with my son & I - she spent countless days/nights encouraging me to keep trying and to push forward! She helped me to realize that my son had a tongue and lip tie and helped me to find a doctor to correct them. She also pointed out that he had torticollis (at this point his drs had yet to point it out even!!) When my son refused to latch she continued to support us and helped us with figuring out how to exclusively pump etc. 
My son just turned 1 year and I still reach out to Vicky from time to time when I need advice or have questions... 
I highly recommend Vicky to anyone and everyone who I think could benefit from her and her services! She’s such a pleasure to work with & we are so thankful we found her!!

Bethany

Vicky is great! A calming presence for anxious mothers :-). She’s knowledgeable, compassionate and a fantastic resource!

Kelly

Thank you so much for all your help! Especially with our latching  issues due to tongue tie. We sincerely appreciate you! 

Kristen

I don't think I could ever thank you enough for helping me nurse 2 years! And I wish I could have gone longer. I appreciate every late night reply, coming over to my house to just talk and be there or all the helpful suggestions that now seem like such common sense, but for a new mom just trying to give her son the best you were an amazing help! I couldn't ask for a better teacher or friend!

Covid-19 UPDATE

Stay in the Know

IMPORTANT COVID-19 information! In these uncertain times please consider the health of others when scheduling a consult. If you or ANYONE in your household has had a fever, cough or stomach upset in the past 48 hours PLEASE use our virtual consult option. In addition if you or anyone you have been in contact with has known COVID-19 exposure please use virtual option.

I practice an abundance of caution in both my personal and professional life and will also be adhering to the above. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time. BE WELL ! ~ Vicky Sullilvan

 


Can you still breastfeed if you have COVID-19?

Breastfeeding helps protect babies from a variety of illnesses. This is because breastmilk contains antibodies and other immune protective factors. If you have been diagnosed with or are suspected of having COVID-19, care should be taken to avoid spreading the virus to your baby while you continue to breastfeed. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/guidance-prevent-spread.html

If you have stopped breastfeeding there is help available to restart, please call for support.
