We are pleased to announce that Dana Czuczka has officially joined our lactation team at Willows! Dana will be seeing nursing moms and their babies on Tuesday mornings and Wednesdays. Dana will also continue to co-facilitate the new mom’s group with Cathy Peters on Tuesdays.

Dana is a CLC (Certified Lactation Counselor by the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice) and has qualified to sit for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBCLE) boards this year. Dana completed her clinical training here at Willows and at Full Circle Women’s Health in Harrison, NY. She is also on staff at Stamford Hospital.

Dana has a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master’s in Public Health from the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. Before becoming a lactation consultant, Dana worked at Planned Parenthood of New York City for more than a decade and also at the Department of Population and Family Health at Columbia University.

Dana joins Cathy in offering our patients evidence-based education and compassionate support for successful and satisfying nursing. Her training is in helping newborns and moms establish successful breastfeeding practices plus overcoming specific issues like painful or poor latching, low milk supply, engorgement, oversupply, and clogged ducts.

Please join us in welcoming Dana Czuczka on board!
