5 Key Principles of Practice

1. Mothers know their babies best. The job of the lactation counselor is to provide the mother with a variety of evidence based options to make an informed decision about her breastfeeding and parenting journey.

2. Mothers have a variety of breastfeeding goals and circumstances. All nursing and breast milk matter and deserve respect. Breastfeeding is not only about breast milk.

3. Mothers and babies are shown to have better overall health outcomes when human milk is the primary diet for the first year.

4. Babies are people who deserve respect. Empowering a mother is to empower a child.

5. Mothers deserve support. The job of the lactation counselor is to provide parents and extended family with information for supporting the breastfeeding and parenting journey.
