About Lorna

Lorna Aliperti Lactation Consultant

I am a nurse practitioner who has been helping new mothers in Stamford for 22 years–19 of them as an IBCLC board certified lactation consultant. I taught obstetrics in the Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Program at Columbia University School of Nursing, and I previously worked as a nurse practitioner in the office of Dr. Christina Smillie, a pediatrician who specializes in breastfeeding medicine. In addition, I worked for eight years as a nursery and postpartum nurse before going back to school to get my second master’s and become an NP.

I authored an Arco test preparation book for practical nurses taking their NCLEX certification exam, and my research on hospital breastfeeding management was published in the Journal of Perinatal Education. I recently wrote an article in the Expectant Mothers Guide to Connecticut Planning to Breastfeed?

I have had over 5000 consults with new mothers since starting in 2002.

Last but not least, I am married and the proud mother of four breastfed children. We have lived in Stamford for 33 years.
