Margaret D’Andrea, RN, IBCLC, has been a registered nurse, working in maternity and pediatrics, since 1987. She was inspired to become an international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) after the birth of her first child, when an IBCLC-certified nurse came to her home and helped her successfully breastfeed. D’Andrea became IBCLC certified in 1999, and has dedicated herself to helping all women succeed in their breastfeeding goals.

D’Andrea has been a member of CHOP’s lactation team in the Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit since 2008. She looks forward to continuing her work supporting and mentoring clinical staff to assist breastfeeding mothers and babies.
