Polly Torkelson, Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC)

Biography

University Attended: Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice

 

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.

 

Education:

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!
