About Me

Alycia Dymond


My name is Alycia, and I've been working with breastfeeding families for the last fourteen years. 

Throughout that time I've completed training as a birth and postpartum doula, a yoga instructor, a pediatric nurse, and as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).  I completed my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in the Primary Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner track at Boston College in May of 2024.

I had my first child, Penelope, in February of 2019. We embarked on our own breastfeeding journey, which has given me an astounding amount of perspective on the early newborn days, pumping, and traveling with and without my child. My second child, Sam, joined our family in May of 2022. He has gifted  me with the parent's eye view of tongue tie/tethered oral tissue and all that goes along with it.  I hope to be able to use this knowledge to make your experience a little more straightforward. 

A California native, I attended San Francisco State University and received my initial degree in Technical Theatre.  After working in the local theatre scene for many years, a need for change led me to pursue birth, postpartum, and lactation training at the Simkin Center for Allied Birth Vocations in Seattle, Washington. Working as a doula and nanny to singletons and several sets of twins introduced me to my passion for newborns and lactation. I next completed an accelerated Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at the University of Southern Maine in Portland, Maine. I've worked in a busy outpatient Pediatrics office for seven years, serving as a staff and triage nurse. For the last four years I've worked as an inpatient IBCLC, supporting families in a local community hospital, a teaching hospital in downtown Boston, and a large academic medical center. I have completed my training to be a Primary Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner  and plan to take the board exam to qualify in the summer of 2024.  My home base is Beverly, MA.

I love working with first time parents, families that have chosen to have their children later in life, and same sex/transgender families. I have additional training in supporting families with postpartum depression and trauma survivors throughout the birth and postpartum period. I've completed additional training in flange sizing for pumping parents and am excited to share what I've learned with you!

I look forward to connecting with you and your new family and to helping you find the right solution for feeding your newborn.
