Find a Lactation Consultant
Inducing lactation, relactation, and bringing an older baby to breast - all parts of breastfeeding without birthing - are some pretty special breastfeeding circumstances and highly-skilled lactation care is highly recommended. If there is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in your area with experience/expertise in these areas, meeting with her as you embark on this journey could be your first step towards a successful breastfeeding experience.
IBCLCs from all over the world who wish to work with parents inducing lactation, relactating, or bringing an older baby to breast have requested to be added to this listing. The only qualification to be in the listing is the IBCLC certification and the desire to work with breastfeeding-without-birthing families. The IBCLCs in this listing are not specifically recommended by Sweet Pea Breastfeeding Support, and we encourage you to ask them questions about their experience and education/training in these areas before engaging their services.
If you are unable to find a local IBCLC in your area, Sweet Pea Breastfeeding Support's Alyssa Schnell is available for phone or video consultation. She can work with you on her own, or in collaboration with a local lactation consultant who may not have experience in inducing lactation or relactation but who can help with breast pump rental, local resources, and hands-on breastfeeding support once baby arrives.
