LactaLearning fills a critical need, providing lactation training that is evidence-based AND engaging to both head and heart. Unlike course providers who limit their teaching to the passive learning of endless PowerPoint presentations, LactaLearning incorporates a wide range of dynamic learning tools and strategies proven most effective for adult learners: live interactive discussions, short videos, articles, and posts, infographics, animation, and much more.
With 60+ years of clinical lactation experience and 34+ years of curriculum development, our founders, Nancy Mohrbacher, IBCLC, FILCA and Barbara Robertson, MA, IBCLC are committed to giving you a better learning experience. Lactation and educational best practices are our top priorities, so you retain more vital information for higher exam scores and more effectively integrate new knowledge and skills into clinical practice.
Barbara Robertson, MA, IBCLC spent 24 years working one-on-one with thousands of nursing families in private practice and via peer support. As an educator, she spent 33 years teaching students of all ages. Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Barbara served as the Director of Professional Development for the U.S. Lactation Consultant Association and Contributing Editor for its journal, Clinical Lactation. An IBCLC since 2004, LactaLearning is the culmination of Barbara’s twin passions: adult education and lactation. Barbara’s Master’s degree in Curriculum Development provides the skills and expertise needed to ensure that LactaLearning’s courses exemplify educational best practices.
