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 reached out to Alyssa , and she has added them 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, Alyssa is available for phone 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.
If you are an IBCLC who wishes to be added to this listing, please contact us!
