20 Feb First IBCLC joins The Baby Academy
In January 2021, we welcomed Kay, The Baby Academy’s very own International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Kay qualified as an IBCLC in 2012 but not before acquiring 3 decades of Midwifery experience while working in a busy NHS hospital as the Infant Feeding Lead. Kay also provides evidence-based feeding support and antenatal education for thousands of parents across the country while working as a senior midwife in a birthing centre specialising in water and natural birth for over a decade. Being passionate about supporting parents feeding their babies, Kay runs her own small private practice offering breastfeeding support.
We’re super proud to continue our traditional hiring the best of the best instructor for our customers. IBCLC’s have to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and work within the professional Standards of Practice as laid out by the International Board. By keeping their knowledge and skills current, all IBCLC’s must recertify every 5 years through continuing education and re-examination of the latest research.
Kay instructs both our FREE ‘Prepare to Breastfeed’ Workshop and Ultimate Online Breastfeeding Class to help educate mum and dads across the UK on all things breastfeeding.
