Certified Lactation Counselor
Donna Dowling is associate professor of nursing at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and director of the Post-Masters Doctor of Nursing Practice Program at Case Western Reserve University, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing. She has worked as a staff nurse in all areas of perinatal nursing. As a nurse clinician at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, she developed an interest in working with mothers whose infants did not have
normal oral feeding experiences. She continued exploring this interest during the 13 years she spent as a practitioner-teacher in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago. Her doctoral research examined the coordination of sucking and breathing during breast- and bottle-feeding for preterm infants. Her research interests continue to focus on the effects of different methods of supplementing breastfeeding for preterm infants and interventions to increase the initiation and duration of provision of mother’s milk for minority populations.
