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.
