Our Mission

We are the professional voice for Lactation Consultants
in Aotearoa/New Zealand

 

We believe that breastfeeding matters to women and their babies. Almost all New Zealand women breastfeed, but some wean earlier than they would like, due to problems that are avoidable or manageable.  A Lactation Consultant can make a difference between giving up, and continuing to breastfeed for as long as mother and baby wish.

 

The Lactation Consultant is the main resource for anyone requiring assistance or needing to know more about special breastfeeding and lactation problems or about the importance of human milk.

The Lactation Consultant advocates for breastfeeding as the norm for babies and toddlers.
