Are you looking for speakers with evidence, energy, and enthusiasm about breastfeeding?

We'd love to present to your audience.  Please contact us and tell us about your lactation education needs.  We offer custom presentations based on your audience, and we also have several topics prepared.

We can also provide education for large or small groups of hospital staff who require updates or initial lactation education to comply with the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative© requirements.  If you provide the setting and the students, we will help educate and inspire your group with evidence-based lactation information and motivation to help your facility advance its journey to becoming Baby-Friendly© certified!


Why We Do What We Do

We believe it's simple: breastfeeding/chestfeeding education helps parents make informed infant feeding choices.  We collect and share the most current evidence-based information about breastfeeding/chestfeeding, and we educate healthcare professionals and the community.  

Like most lactation professionals, our journey began with personal experiences.  Today, after years of helping parents and babies through support groups and in local hospitals, we observed that many parents are unable to reach their own breastfeeding/chestfeeding goals because they are derailed by poor information from others and because our society does not honor breastfeeding as the normal way of feeding a baby.  Breastfeeding matters, and a diet of human milk matters.  It's important.  It changes health outcomes for parents and babies.  The science is already established.  What parents and babies need are people to advocate for them in the community.  Here we are.
