Hi, I’m Catherine!
My name is Catherine Roy, and I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I can help you with any of your breastfeeding concerns.
I’ll tell you a little about myself. I grew up here on Cape Cod in the town of Sandwich. I’ve been a Medical Assistant for almost eight years and currently work at an OB/GYN office. I love being a Medical Assistant and the medical field in general, but when I had my son I was inspired to take my career in a new direction.
So, Why Lactation Consulting?
I had such a hard time with breastfeeding. But, after a lot of hard work, I was able to breastfeed my son for fourteen months. I experienced so many difficulties including low supply, troubles latching, mastitis, clogged ducts and the list goes on! I went to see a Lactation Consultant who was a godsend. I realized that this was my calling and something I could do to help other moms.
My favorite quote: “It takes a village to raise a child.”
I am here for you before and after your baby arrives to support your breastfeeding journey

The first few weeks after having a baby can be overwhelming. The number one reason mom’s supplement is that they didn’t know how much baby was transferring at the breast. Another bonus of this rental is free text messages to confirm if baby is taking in an appropriate amount. Email me with questions at MotherlyLoveWellness@gmail.com
Weekly rentals are $25.
Lactation Tea and More!
Lactation Tea for those times when you feel like you need a little boost in your supply. I usually recommend the teas and treats in the early days when your waiting for your milk to come in, returning to working out, getting your period back, ugh the worst, and returning to work. If you truly have a low supply, it won’t be enough to boost your supply but great when you feel like you have a dip in your supply. $12.95 and comes with a reusable tea bag.
Want to try our lactation energy bites? We can add those in as well. I totally understand how busy life can get with a newborn so let me make them for you! $5 a bag. To order please email me with your order down below.
Do you need a gift for someone but not sure what to get them? Why not a gift certificate to Motherly Love Wellness and they can pick it out themselves! It’s not just for breastfeeding, they can try a class or even buy some of our products out front. Can print out or email it directly to them.
