What  is a lactation Consultant?

The Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is a certified health professional who specializes in human lactation, breastfeeding support, and management with a focus on helping mothers and mother/child follow-up.

 

The certification of these professionals is approved by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiner. This certification is internationally recognized.  IBCLC lactation consultants can be found in many health care settings such as hospitals, pediatric clinics, CLSCs, and private clinics (self-employed).The training required is very specialized with a minimum of 90 hours of lactation training required. IBCLCs must have extensive experience in clinical lactation management and counseling (minimum of 1000 hours of practice) in order to prepare for the international examination organized by the IBLCE (International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners).This certification requires that IBCLCs follow a very strict code of practice like any other health professional. Regular updates and re-certifications are required.

 

What is a consultation with an IBCLC ?

A consultation can take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, especially during the first meeting. A complete evaluation of your situation will be done (pregnancy history, medical interventions, particularities related to your baby, delivery, and breastfeeding to date). 

 

In terms of breastfeeding, an evaluation of latching will be done in order to identify difficulties at this level.  An evaluation of the baby's latch will be done, as well as a check of the baby's physical characteristics in relation to breastfeeding (latch, mouth, tongue extension, and any other relevant elements). In addition, I will assess the impact of the latch on the mother's breasts and nipples in order to identify the risks of injury or pain and potential milk production issues.

Once the evaluation is completed, an action plan will be put forward based on your personal goals, choices, and needs according to the issue. Follow-ups may be necessary depending on the issues identified.  In this action plan, I can refer you to other professionals.Follow-up by phone or email as needed will be offered to ensure good support while the issue is resolved. The follow-up is included in the consultation fee.

The course of a consultation:

The first meeting of approximately 90 minutes, ideally in person (home visit).

Possibility of virtual consultation via What's App or Google Duo 

***All packages include follow-ups by phone, email, or text.

My professional history

My passion? The human journey.  

Through my educational background with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, I have always had a keen interest in understanding interpersonal relationships, communication, human biology, and mental health promotion. The experience of motherhood has literally transformed me as well as my own experience of breastfeeding for a period of 5 years.

 

I joined Nourri-Source in 2016 as a breastfeeding sponsor and contributing member and my passion for breastfeeding and supporting moms have really taken off. Over the past 5 years, I have accompanied more than 100 mothers in their breastfeeding experience. I then decided to turn this passion into a profession. I took the Human Lactation Specialization course and accumulated hours of practical training at the Herzl-Goldfarb breastfeeding clinic (Jewish Hospital of Montreal) as well as at the breastfeeding clinic of the Saint-Jérôme and Sainte-Agathe hospitals.  I am therefore certified as an IBCLC in the Laurentian region since January 2021.
