About Me

Triangle Lactation is currently based in Raleigh, NC, operated by Ann Conlon-Smith, board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) for over 20 years.

I have been passionate about breastfeeding for over 30 years since I nursed my first child and became a La Leche League leader in 1984, which led me to my profession as a lactation consultant in 1996. The risks of not breastfeeding for baby and parent are well documented.  A physiological connection and symbiotic relationship gives a breastfeeding parent a keen sense of  baby’s needs. Breastmilk is a living substance and changes according to the way a baby sucks, the age of the baby, the time of day, germs baby has been exposed to and more.

Not all breastfeeding experiences are perfect from the start (or what we imagined them to be) and sometimes help is needed. A slight adjustment or a different perspective can make a big difference. Parents returning to work can also benefit from the help and guidance of a lactation consultant. I can assist you with most breastfeeding difficulties either through a consultation or by offering guidance in choosing a pump, scale, or herb that might help. Currently, all consultations are virtual until further notice.
