Hi, I’m Dee Miller

I’m an IBCLC and have been a Registered Nurse for over 25 years. I’ve also worked in Maternal Child Health since 2008.

I primarily offer In-Home Lactation Consultations in Milton Florida, Pensacola, Ferry Pass, Brent, Gulf Breeze, Pace, Ensley, Avalon, Bellview, Cantonment, Navarre, Perdido Key, Bagdad, and the Pensacola Navy Base.  I also service other areas including Destin FL, Fort Walton Beach, Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and Foley Alabama for a small fee. If you aren’t sure if you are too far out, please contact me and we can discuss it. You can also sign up for a Virtual Lactation Consultation!

My experience and expertise as a Registered Nurse and Lactation Consultant will give you the strong support you need to achieve your breastfeeding goals and meet the needs of your baby. Human milk is the optimal way to feed your baby and it’s my passion to assist all families!

frequently asked questions

What is an IBCLC?

IBCLC’s (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants) are certified healthcare professionals trained in the clinical management of breastfeeding.

I provide mothers and healthcare professionals with evidence-based education on breastfeeding and lactation. I’ll help you reach your personal lactation goal, and assist you with issues including low milk supply and pain as a response to pumping. 

My breastfeeding issues seem unsolvable, how can you help?

I have been assisting mothers and babies with breastfeeding for years. I have seen many complicated issues and have helped many families overcome them. I have experience in multi-faceted breastfeeding matters. However, if I am unable to help you, I will be able to steer you in the right direction for further specialty care if I think it is appropriate.

Do You Accept Insurance?

Under the Affordable Care Act, many insurance companies are required to cover preventative lactation services without any additional costs or copays. All of the visits are eligible through your insurance and/or through your health savings account or flexible spending account. At this time, I am not an in-network provider with any insurance company. However, I do work with The Lactation Network for coverage of some insurance plans. Click here to see if you qualify. If your insurance does not participate with The Lactation Network, at the end of our visit I will provide you with a superbill to make getting reimbursed from your insurance as easy as possible. Please contact me if you have any additional questions about insurance coverage or superbills.

Will You Wear a Mask at our Visit?

I absolutely will be wearing a mask at our in-home visit. I take the healthcare of my clients and their families very seriously. I have been fully vaccinated. All of my equipment and anything brought into your home will be completely sanitized from any previous visits to other homes. I practice universal precautions and wear gloves while touching you and your baby. If you have any concerns about Covid, please contact me prior to our meeting.

Mini Consult

Mini Consult

Do you have a few questions about your baby and breastfeeding that don’t necessarily warrant a full 60-90 minute consultation? For those small issues or quick questions you may have, I offer a “mini-consult”. This 30 minute or less consult, I can answer any questions you may have about any topic that pertains to breastfeeding, pumping, back to work issues, weaning, etc. We can either chat by phone or virtually on your computer. If your issue is more complicated than a phone call and further evaluation is necessary, I will suggest we schedule a longer consultation. This mini-consult is for parents with questions that do not require a full assessment, but would like professional advice and assistance with breastfeeding.

When I first called Dee, I was sobbing, holding my premature son who was also sobbing. I had just had a meltdown with my husband, saying “I just want to make it to 12 months!” Translation: I wanted to breastfeed our baby for a year. Thanks to Dee, this is now an inside joke between my husband and me. When I nursed our son for the last time at 38 months, my husband chuckled and said, “You just wanted to make it to 12 months.” We snuggled our thriving, happy…READ MORE

Words cannot begin to express how grateful I am for Dee. As a new mom, trying to figure out the mechanics of breastfeeding while watching my baby cry from hunger and continue to drop weight was not something I was prepared for. Dee was always accommodating to my needs and the needs of my newborn and if one technique did not work she knew exactly what to do next. She always made my son and me feel like we were a priority…READ MORE

I’m super thankful for Dee as she is a very essential part of my breastfeeding journey. After having an unplanned c-section and a traumatic birth experience, I was super worried about breastfeeding my little one as my milk has been very slow to come in. Dee provides very clear, concise, and thoughtful care that will cater towards you, your baby, and any unique situation that you may have. I left the hospital with thoughts of giving up but because of Dee, I am committed to making progress and continuing my breastfeeding journeyREAD MORE

Working with Dee was a wonderful experience. I had a scheduled c section, so I set up an appointment with Dee 2 days after I returned home from the hospital and I’m so happy I did. She came to our house and worked with us in our own environment, providing solutions and help when we needed it most. We had several problems, including a tongue tie. I truly believe Dee’s expertise and experience saved our breastfeeding journeyREAD MORE

Dee Miller. Auntie Dee to our little girl. I honestly would not have survived my first 3 months of mommy-hood without Dee. Dee not only took care of our baby; she also took care of me. EVERY session (without exaggeration), I’d leave feeling much better than when I came. For the brand new Mom’s, you know how much of a blessing that is. I looked forward to “Dee” time! Dee would see us every week for months as my LO was pretty strong willed, and she’d rather sleep than eat. She dropped as low as the 6th percentile in weight. With the help, guidance…READ MORE

I can’t put into words how much Dee helped me in my breastfeeding journey! I met Dee when I was pregnant with my twins. Not only did I not know how to handle newborn twins, but I also had no idea how I could breastfeed twins. Dee was patient, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable. When I thought I was nursing, she gently corrected the latch and showed me how to help my baby’s nurse properly. Dee will be your biggest cheerleader, help answer your questions…READ MORE

I first met Dee when she worked at a small-town hospital where I delivered my first child. I was very worried about nursing and when people asked me if I planned on nursing I would always give an unsure, “I’m going to try.” In my mind, nursing was something only a few people’s bodies were capable of doing and I wasn’t sure I was going to be the lucky few. I had heard other people share their experiences and when I heard most bottle-fed their babies…READ MORE

Dee was very helpful and professional. She listened to and answered all of my and my husband’s questions with patience and attentiveness. Dee made me feel much more secure in my ability to nurture my daughter. The care plan she provided for us was very thorough and specific. I appreciate her compassion. Her expertise is a great value to nursing moms and their partners. I would highly recommend Dee to anyone needing professional assistance. READ MORE

I had my daughter in June 2020. Here we are 18 months later and still breastfeeding! It all started with Dee taking the time to help me learn to help my daughter latch and always reminding me I was producing enough for her. Dee is so patient and was always willing to answer my questions. I’m so thankful for her help in those first few weeks, from help in the hospital to weighted feeds to several phone consults. If it weren’t for her I probably would have quit in those first few days, but her support helped me persevere and I’m so thankful I did. READ MORE

Vanessa Ludwig

I was an older mom who had my first daughter via IVF, so my doctor wasn’t sure I would be able to produce enough milk. She was born prematurely and was in the NICU for ten days. She was bottle-fed in the NICU while I pumped what I could so she had a hard time latching. Her doctors encouraged me to switch to formula exclusively but I was determined to breastfeed as much as I could…READ MORE
