Knowledge is power: how skilled breastfeeding counselling helped my journey as a new mom - Nutrition International

This is the journey of so many mothers. Her journey is why so many of us were called to the profession of lactation consulting.

This mother's story - and the stories of all other parents whose feeding goals include human milk - is also why ILCA is a part of the Global Breastfeeding Collective.

Alongside WHO, UNICEF, and other international organizations, we are advocating for universal access to skilled breastfeeding care. Together, we can ensure that no one breastfeeds alone.

No one breastfeeds alone.

No matter how motivated a parent is to breastfeed their infant, a foundation of policies to protect, promote and support their efforts is critical to each family striving to reach their goals.

Skilled breastfeeding counselling - including the care of IBCLCs - is an essential part of that foundation of support. That is why we are working with the Global Breastfeeding Collective to advocate for policies that increase access to our critical services.

There is no substitute for seeing the process up close and personal before your baby arrives. And yet, COVID means many are separated from peer support networks.
