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.
What Other Therapists are Saying...
"The course was very well organized and thorough. The clinicians clearly have a mastery of the topic and have experience both practicing and teaching/guiding others. I loved that they focused on the research and their own clinical reasoning skills and were able to give clear, logical explanations for their approach to complex treatments. I wish all continuing education courses would provide this level of evidence-based knowledge and experiential insight to practitioners."
"I have been a practicing OT in pediatrics and the NICU setting for many years and this has been one of the most comprehensive, applicable 'conferences'/webinars that I have been able to participate in. I would highly recommend it. Thank you!"
"I found out that I was extremely incorrect about my thoughts about formula. Coming from WIC, I was told they're all the same. I learned that was incorrect - and I'm so happy that I learned the truth. I have already started sharing this information with my families and they are seeing improvements with each feeding."
