Vineyard Nursing Association staff Melissa Dolby and Laura Murphy are now lactation counselors certified by the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice.

The credential indicates a nurse has demonstrated the necessary skills, knowledge and attitude to provide breastfeeding counseling and management support to families.

The VNA provides in-home care for new mothers and their babies. Last year, VNA nurses provided care to 131 new mothers and their babies.
