Hey, hey! I am Bonnie Holt Logsdon, a Registered Dietitian (RD), International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Certified Lactation Educator™ (CLE©) through CAPPA and a DONA trained birth doula with over fifteen years of experience in practice. I am grateful and happy to be supporting Louisville and Southern Indiana families during the prenatal and postpartum period for both nutrition and breastfeeding support.
From belly to birth to breast, I am here for you! Supporting families during this critical and emotional time in their lives is such important work that I do not take lightly! I decided to call my practice The Baby's Voice because I truly believe that our babies are using their "voice" to tell us what they need. And what they need is you, mama! Your touch, voice, smell and the taste of your breastmilk is all they want and need. I promise to provide support in a compassionate, judgment-free way to meet you where you are and help you meet your breastfeeding or nutrition goals.
Families hire lactation consultants (IBCLCs) for our expertise in all things breastfeeding and baby! I specialize in:
Sore/cracked/bleeding nipples and breast pain
Baby not latching
Engorgement, oversupply, mastitis, plugged or clogged ducts
Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTs)/Tongue, Lip and Cheek Ties also known as Ankyloglossia; providing assessment for symptoms in baby and appropriate referrals
Weaning off the nipple shield (and why you needed one to start)
Pumping concerns, troubleshooting and a Back to Work/School/Overnight trips breastpump class and strategies
Ordering your breastpump (I can help you do that for free!)
Starting Solid foods with baby, food allergies, food safety, baby-led weaning
Toddler Nutrition (picky eaters)
New mom support
If you are experiencing some of these things, please reach out for support and let's create a plan that best fits you and your babies needs.
When I am not doing this job that I love, I am spending time with my husband and our three year old son. We have traveled the world together and now enjoy time with our happy, yappy nursing toddler. He is our greatest adventure and keeps us on our toes and laughing! In my free time I enjoy quality time with family and friends, cooking and experimenting with new foods from around the world, traveling and visiting as many National Parks as possible!
I would be honored to be a part of your journey. Schedule an appointment today. I can't wait to meet you and your sweet babe!

NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES (HIPAA)
THIS NOTICE DESCRIBES HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED AND HOW YOU CAN GET ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION. PLEASE REVIEW IT CAREFULLY.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law designed to protect your privacy whenever your health care providers (like the lactation consultant) have to discuss your case, or send information about you to different offices. I have to keep a file to record our consult – but I promise that the private, protected health information (PHI) in it will be kept confidential.
I can freely share all the details of your protected health information for purposes of “treatment, payment and health care operations.” That means I can talk to you about your situation, and discuss it with your other health care providers. If you are referred to other specialists, I can send the information on to them. I can also share information with your health insurance company if they need it. The law also requires me to share your information under other, very precise situations: for example, if a subpoena has been served on me, to turn over medical records ... or a federal agency is investigating a complaint that I have not been protecting your privacy.
Any other time I share your personal health information, it has to be with your specific authorization: you have to okay it, in writing, first. For example, you may want me to send information about your consultation to the Human Resources Dept. where you work, so they can pay you back under their workplace lactation support program. When you do give me permission to turn over information about you, I can give out only the minimum amount of information needed to get the job done. Under HIPAA, I can call or write you to remind you to come back for an appointment, or to tell you how you can get a product or service that might interest you and your family.
You have four rights under HIPAA:
(1) Access (you can ask the lactation consultant to see all the PHI she has about you);
(2) Amendment (you can ask the lactation consultant to change her files to amend inaccurate PHI);
(3) Disclosure Accounting (you can ask to whom the lactation consultant has given your PHI) and
(4) Restriction Request (you can put limits on the lactation consultant’s use and sharing of your PHI).
My duty under to HIPAA is to give you this notice, so you understand I have promised to keep your private health information confidential. If I change this notice in the future, I’ll give you a new copy.
I am the Privacy Officer for my one-person company. My name and phone no. are Bonnie Logsdon, (270) 202-9545. I will answer your questions or concerns about how I protect the privacy of your health information. You can complain if you think your privacy hasn’t been protected by the lactation consultant. I am the Privacy Officer, so first you’d have to complain to me ... and I have a duty to try to patch things up. I can’t penalize you for making a complaint. If I don’t address your complaint adequately, you can go over my head to the Office of Civil Rights of the federal Health and Human Services Dept., to ask that a formal investigation be made. You can get all the details from them on how to file a complaint. You can’t go to court and sue me over a HIPAA violation -- but you can ask HHS to investigate.
