What is a lactation consultant?

A lactation consultant is a certified professional who can help a mother with all breastfeeding difficulty. It is a new field that has been created due to a lack of proper training and support for breastfeeding needs in the medical community. The middle east has extremely low breastfeeding rates in comparison to the rest of the world, this is why lactation consultants are of utmost importance in the medical field to help mothers begin breastfeeding and maintain it. Most mothers stop breastfeeding because they find it painful or are afraid they do not have enough milk supply. Breastfeeding should NOT be painful and a lactation consultant can find the reason behind the painful breastfeeding and fix it.  A breastfeeding consultant can also help you assess if your milk supply is enough and help you increase it if it is not. 

At myPediaclinic we work as a team, the lactation consultant and pediatrician Dr. Medhat Abu Shaaban work together to make careful analysis of each individual baby's situation and to exclude any medical reasons that can be causing feeding issues such as lip tie or gastrointestinal problems.

You might also be looking for a lactation consultation in Dubai for any of the below reasons:
