Sonia Mathisson is a Registered Dietitian and Board Certified Lactation Consultant with over 25 years experience in the Nutrition field. She has been in private practice for the past 16 years. As a mother and a Registered Dietitian with a Masters Degree in Nutrition, it seemed a natural progression to want to help mothers achieve the best possible breastfeeding experience. As with many people in this field, her journey to becoming an IBCLC started with her own challenging breastfeeding experiences. Each of her three children proved to have a different set of breastfeeding issues for her to work through. With the assistance of a lactation consultant and her own perseverance, she successfully breastfed her 3 children for over a year each. Sonia was so thrilled with the help that she received and the experience of breastfeeding, she decided to pursue formal training to become a Board Certified Lactation Consultant to allow her to help others achieve the same wonderful experience she had.
Sonia is currently in private practice where she does In-home visits, prenatal breastfeeding classes, and medical nutrition therapy. She also works part-time at NY Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital as both a Registered Dietitian and a Lactation Consultant.
Sonia understands the uniqueness of each mother/baby relationship and breastfeeding experience. She prides herself on her upbeat, supportive, non-judgmental attitude towards her clients. She enjoys watching parents become confident and knowledgeable caregivers to their babies.
