Polly Torkelson, Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC)


University Attended: Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice, Rochester, Minnesota


About Me:

I currently reside in the southern metro with my husband and my two children. In my spare time I like to dance, go running, submerse myself in all things music, and relax at home with my family.



After running in to some breastfeeding issues of my own after the birth of my second child, I decided that I wanted to educate myself about breastfeeding as much as I possibly could so that I could help other women having the same issues that I was having.


Why I Went Into This Field:

I love being a Certified Lactation Counselor because it gives me joy knowing that I’m helping someone. It always amazes me to see the drive and determination a woman has once you give her a little guidance. The doctors at Partners Ob-Gyn have graciously let me share my knowledge and resources with our patients about breastfeeding and I couldn’t be happier!
