If you would like to schedule an appointment, call me at 53 53 85 73. I look forward to providing you with thoughtful and knowledgeable breastfeeding support.
I’m Sally Parrott, a board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) who trained in lactation at University of California, San Diego. I operated a private lactation practice—Nourish Breastfeeding Support—in Rochester, New York. I moved to Copenhagen in May 2018.
In addition to my private practice, I have experience in inpatient and outpatient hospital settings and WIC lactation offices in the U.S. I have worked with a wide range of nursing families and the issues they face. My goal with offering breastfeeding services is to help you discover evidence-based solutions that enable you to reach your breastfeeding goals, whatever they may be.
I believe deeply in the primacy of parents making the choices for how to raise their children. What works in and for your family may not be the choices someone else would make, and I honor that. Therefore, my lactation consultations are about working together with you to find what fits your life: your needs, your energy, your lifestyle, your goals. As you will discover, I am a nonjudgmental and supportive infant feeding specialist.
I regularly see clients who have already sought help from other breastfeeding support professionals, but whose breastfeeding issues have not resolved. To figure out the root cause(s) of the continuing issues, we go carefully through the mom’s and baby’s medical histories, I do physical exams of mom (usually just breasts) and baby (many things, all gentle), I watch the baby eat (nursing or bottle-feeding, depending on what the baby is currently doing). and if the baby is currently breastfeeding, we usually do a weight check on a very precise neonatal scale to see how much milk the baby has consumed. To be frank, one of my most important skills is picking up on details that others may have missed and synthesizing that with other data so that I can formulate an accurate picture of what’s happening. Then we start on the path toward making breastfeeding a better, more successful experience. Depending on the situation, it may or may not be a quick solution, but I provide support and guidance until we have gotten things to a better place.
About me personally:
I grew up in Georgia and have lived in North Carolina, Southern and Northern California, and New York before moving here. I live near the beach in East Amager with my husband, Daniel, who is a professor at the University of Copenhagen; our five-year-old son, Liam; and our cat and dog. And I brought the warm summer of 2018 with me when I moved. You’re welcome.
