Lactation Education Consultant
Helping healthcare professionals support their patients in the most integral way
Lactation professionals are part of the healthcare team. We work to support the breastfeeding relationship, by providing families practical evidence-based advice, in a compassionate and non-judgmental space.
Lactation and breastfeeding advice is always evidence-based, and follows the American Academy of Pediatrics, World Health Organization, and other medical professional associations’ recommendations and statements.
We work as part of the healthcare team to ensure the best possible postpartum care and infant’s nutrition. We recognize pediatricians and OBGYNs as the primary care physicians; therefore, our professional advice is always aligned to theirs. We promote and practice frequent communication with the primary healthcare provider, as well as other medical specialties.
Mamalactea offers support to healthcare professionals -including physicians, midwives, doulas, dieticians, and any other healthcare professionals related to woman and baby’s health- in lactation matters, looking to provide the best possible multidisciplinary service to patients. This support can be offered in two different ways:
By providing complementary education in lactation to professionals, and
By providing lactation and breastfeeding support to patients.
