Stacy L. Notestine RN, BSN, IBCLC

Hello! Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting.  I have had the privilege of caring for moms and babies for close to 30 years.  As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant(IBCLC) since 2005, my goal and promise to families is to support, encourage and meet you where you are at in your parenting journey. The definition of successful breastfeeding is different for every woman. Many women have the notion that breastfeeding should be easy and natural. Often this is not the case. As a lactation consultant in private practice, I am here to help in those circumstances. My approach is kind and embraced with warmth and guidance as we work together to come up with a realistic plan. I would be honored and feel privileged to be a part of this very special and vulnerable beginning in your baby's life.
My entire career has been interwoven with moms and babies! This includes labor and delivery nursing, inpatient and outpatient lactation, NICU and private practice lactation experience. I have also shared my passion for the birth process, baby care, infant massage, multiples, and breastfeeding education during my career with families and staff alike. In addition to my private practice, I am the NICU Lactation Educator for Nationwide Children's Hospital 2 days per week for a staff of over 800 NICU nurses.  I have recently completed additional alternative modality training to add to my practice for those complex breastfeeding cases. This includes Master level Reiki training, yoga training, cranial sacral therapy and a Master level IBCLC class that included oral myofunctional therapy skills. These have all been very beneficial in contributing to a more holistic approach with moms and babies.
On a very special note, I am the proud mother of four beautiful breastfed children (Taylor, Nick & Cody-twins, and Zack) and a "Glam-ma" to a sweet & spunky Amelia Rosalee. My youngest child, Zack, was one of the best surprises in life! He taught me a lot about breastfeeding difficulties and about how patience, practice, and persistence can reap great rewards. Thank you to my family and to all my moms, babies, and their families for being an inspiration to me in my practice!
