The Lactation OT was founded in 2020 to create continuing education opportunities and resources for therapists that highlight the unique and special bond of the breastfeeding dyad. The platform was curated to ensure that courses provide evidence-based, therapeutic interventions to prolong the breastfeeding relationship. We desire to build a community of highly specialized and passionate therapists that are dedicated to helping families reach their feeding goals.
