I am a board certified internal medicine physician and pediatrician. I co-own Indy Direct Docs, a direct primary care practice in Indianapolis, Indiana. I am also an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) and a physician specializing in lactation and postpartum care.
You deserve compassionate, cohesive, evidence based care of yourself and your baby during the postpartum period. Unfortunately, lactation and postpartum care are often overlooked in the modern medical system. Trust me, I’ve been there. When I became a first time mother myself, I realized just how little I knew about getting help for breastfeeding and postpartum challenges despite being a primary care physician myself. I have spent many years since then becoming the physician I desperately needed but could not find back then.
I now help patients and their families thrive during the postpartum period and beyond. I integrate this care for my direct primary care patients in Indianapolis. I also provide consultations and care for lactation and postpartum challenges to patients anywhere in Indiana. I teach breastfeeding preparation courses to parents to help them stop breastfeeding problems before they begin. I am also available as a speaker for lactation and postpartum care topics.
