Our Team

We aim to create a space that’s empowering, informative and completely non-judgmental. We’re providing a service that too often people don’t associate with healthcare. Now moms can get the assistance and advice they need without leaving the convenience of their home or office.



As a Harvard-trained pediatrician with extensive knowledge in newborn medicine and particularly breastfeeding support, Sylvia thought she was set to take on motherhood as well as any mom could. But with the birth of each one of her babies, Ari and Sebastian, she struggled with a low milk supply and as a result, the newborn’s weights dropped. After enlisting help from her close network of knowledgeable family, friends and fellow pediatric medical colleagues, Sylvia was able to tackle her breastfeeding challenges head on.

Understanding how powerless moms can feel when faced with questions or issues around how best to meet their baby’s, and their own, needs, Sylvia wondered where other moms found support, especially outside of typical office hours.

She didn’t find a sufficient answer, and so, MilkOnTapTM was born.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Sylvia graduated from the Harvard-affiliated Pediatrics residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, the Harvard University School of Public Health with a Master of Public Health (MPH) and before that, from the University of Arizona, College of Medicine as an MD. She is married, has two children and currently resides in Cambridge, MA.

With passions firmly rooted in social and humanitarian causes, Sylvia brings her heart and soul to MilkOnTap to encourage, inspire and empower her fellow moms.



Breastfeeding is natural and should be easy, right?

After delivering her first child in a foreign country and not having the local resources needed to be successful with breastfeeding immediately postpartum, Lauren realized how much she needed expert help when and where she needed it—and in a language she could understand!  She is now proud to say she’s the mother of three breastfed children, however, all of those experiences have not come easily and have been wrought with challenges—and joys!

Recognizing many out there needed just as much help, Lauren decided to become an expert in breastfeeding support over the last ten years.  She is now an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and has been helping mothers and their families since 2011 in a variety of settings to include telehealth, in and out of the hospital, community centers and as a peer-to-peer support leader.

Some of her specialities include: working with latching issues, alternative feeding to include finger and cup feeding, weaning from nipple shields, dealing with flat and inverted nipples, and supporting challenging or unique situations such as pumping for full time feeding.

Lauren is married, has 3 children at home, a bunny and currently resides in Indiana.
