Lactation Connection NWA

Empowering You on Your Breastfeeding Journey

Lactation Connection NWA is owned by Allison Scott, DNP, APRN, IBCLC.  Allison has 33 years experience as a certified lactation consulant and is a board-certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, who practiced 28 years in NWA. She was the first certified LC in the state of Arkansas.

Allison became interested in lactation while working in a newborn nursery as a RN early in her career. She knew she had to greatly expand her knowledge and ability to help mothers breastfeed because a gap existed among the infant and mother's healthcare providers. Becoming a lactation consultant has allowed her to have a huge impact on both babies and mother's health.

She is the mother of two adult daughters and grandmother to two adorable grandchildren.

LC NWA began in June, 2023 after Allison retired from primary care. She continues to teach graduate nursing students at the University of Arkansas.
Allison has published many articles on breastfeeding, including research studies. She speaks nationally on her research and breastfeeding education for providers. She oversees Tiny Tusks Infant & Breastfeeding Support through the University of Arkansas, a grant-funded student-led organization at selected athletic events.

LC NWA exists to provide breastfeeding parents in-home lactation service with follow-up phone consultation or phone consulation alone. Telehealth (video) lactation services are also available for specific problems not dependent on an infant oral assessment.

Why should I choose you as my lactation consultant?

My lactation expertise spans 34 years.  I established Washington Regional Medical Center's initial lactation program and worked at a hospital lactation consultant for over 3 years. For the past 28 years, I worked at Northwest Pediatrics as their lactation consultant and Nurse Practitioner.  I have helped thousands of mothers breastfeed and have continued certification through continuing education or exam certification every 5 years. I have conducted research on breastfeeding education and cultural feeding issues. I have published numerous articles on breastfeeding, including contributions to the current National Association of Nurse Practitioners Breastfeeding Statement.  
Aside from the above, the primary reason to choose LactationConnectionNWA is my passion for breastfeeding and understanding that all breastfeeding mothers deserve compassionate, evidence-based care and support.
