Aprille McQueen MSN, RN Owner / Founder
Certified Lactation Educator
Aprille McQueen is a registered nurse who has dedicated her entire career to helping new mothers and their babies. She received her Master’s degree in Nursing Administration from Prairie View A&M University, and possesses more than ten years of experience caring for patients in acute hospital settings, specifically in the Mother-Baby specialty. It was in the hospital where Aprille first identified a crucial need not being met in the breastfeeding community. Patients were receiving plenty of breastfeeding support while in the hospital, but when it came time to discharge, many new mothers left the hospital with fear and anxiety regarding breastfeeding at home. While some hospitals do offer outpatient lactation services, new mothers are not always able to get to an outpatient appointment, either due to driving restrictions, inability to arrange for childcare of older siblings, or simply sheer exhaustion from delivery and adjusting to life with a new baby. Additionally, it just made sense that the best way to help breastfeeding moms was to go to the place where they breastfeed most often – in the home! As a result, Aprille founded Lactation Specialist of Houston, a lactation consultation agency currently serving the Houston community and surrounding areas. She’s excited to connect new moms with qualified healthcare professionals who can help clear up the mysteries of breastfeeding and get mom and baby on the right track to a long and fulfilling breastfeeding journey. Whatever your breastfeeding goals may be, Aprille and her team of Lactation Specialists are here to support you every step of the way.
