About Us  ➝

Co-Founders: Dairian Roberts, MS, OTR/L, CLEC, IBCLC, NCS & Marissa Yahil, MSOT, OTR/L, CBS, IBCLC

The Lactation OT was founded in 2020 to create quality, specialized continuing education resources for rehab therapists (OT, SLP, and PT) that highlight the unique and special bond of the breastfeeding dyad. We wanted to create a platform that provided evidence-based, therapeutic interventions to prolong the breastfeeding relationship while building a community of highly specialized and passionate therapists.

We hope the courses will help you develop skills and resources to make impactful changes in your community.
