Dr. Carol Chamblin is an Advanced Practice Nurse specializing as a lactation consultant.
Dr. Carol at "Breast 'N Baby Lactation Services, Inc." sees mothers and infants struggling with breastfeeding, or simply committed to breastfeeding and seeking services for their health care needs in her private practice.
Beyond her private practice, Dr. Carol is an independent contractor for DuPage Medical Groupwhere she provides lactation-related care as an Advanced Practice Nurse at Elmhurst Pediatrics and St. Charles Pediatrics.
Dr. Carol participates as an independent contractor in education for Medela, Inc. and for Prepared Childbirth Educators, Inc.
Carol's passion is to provide lactation-related care based on research findings. Carol believes: "It is not important to me to pressure a mother to continue to breastfeed. I believe in providing accurate information so that mothers can make informed choices regarding their decision to breastfeed or not. Breastfeeding can occur in many different ways. Breast milk feeding by mothers who decide to only pump have healthy benefits for themselves and for their infants."
"My role in providing breastfeeding-related care is inclusive of prenatal education to get ready for breastfeeding, early assistance after delivery, and ongoing effective interventions for the continuation of breastfeeding for as long as the mother chooses to breastfeed her infant. I manage many breastfeeding problems effectively so that mothers can continue to breastfeed if they choose to do so. There are many ways to resolve most breastfeeding problems."
