Luisa Lyons (she/her) | IBCLC Lactation Consultant, RM, BSc (Hons)

Luisa works part-time as a research midwife and is also a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), qualifying in 2006. Luisa joined No Milk Like Mama’s® in 2019 to offer her services to more families.  Luisa supports parents to be able to breastfeed their babies and also parents who require support with combination and bottle feeding.

Luisa was previously the Infant Feeding Lead Midwife and Tongue-tie Practitioner at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and has many years of experience supporting parents with both breast and bottle feeding.  Her roles also involved working with GPs and delivering training to practitioners. 

As a mother of two, Luisa knows what it is like to feel overwhelmed and vulnerable after having a baby. Her youngest son spent a week in NICU after birth following a hypoxic brain injury at birth. This experience enhanced her understanding of establishing lactation in the NICU, the use of donor human milk and the impact of birth trauma on breastfeeding.

‘It is such an intense time for both parents, especially when feeding is difficult. I love being able to be there for parents and to support them to feed their babies and ultimately make a difficult time a bit better for them’.

Chloe Langford (she/her) | IBCLC Lactation Consultant , NICU Nurse, BSc (Hons)

Chloe Langford is a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, IBCLC Lactation Consultant and mum of two. 

Chloe’s breastfeeding support journey started after the birth of her first child in 2011. As a young mum who was very keen to breastfeed, her daughter encountered several difficulties and she struggled to get the right support. This experience led her to want to help others in this situation. Chloe started to volunteer at her local breastfeeding cafe in Dereham where she completed her ABM peer support training. 

Chloe graduated as a nurse from UEA with a first class honours degree in 2017 and was offered her dream job of Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, where she continues to work now. 

Working on the NICU reignited her passion for supporting infant feeding. During her career Chloe has supported hundreds of families to initiate both breast and bottle feeding and now works as part of the specialist infant feeding team on the unit. As part of this role she has also undergone further training to identify tongue tie.

Chloe’s son was born in 2018 and was under NICU care. Chloe learnt first hand what it was like as an overwhelmed mother of a poorly baby. 

Chloe has experience of supporting many parents with feeding concerns including expressing, tongue tie, mastitis, nipple shields and food allergies. Chloe joined No Milk Like Mama’s® in 2020 offering support to new parents. Chloe completed training to becoming a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist and qualified as an IBCLC Lactation Consultant in 2021.

‘I want to support any new family with their feeding and bonding goals with their babies.’

What is an IBCLC Lactation Consultant?

An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is the highest level of breastfeeding support available and is an international qualification. An IBCLC has very specific training to offer this standard of support.

IBCLCs are either registered Health Professionals or have studied 14 health science related subjects before applying for the exam. They are required to also complete 90 hours of lactation specific training and 1000 hours of clinical practice before being eligable to apply for the exam. The 4 hour IBCLE exam can then be applied for. This is a Master’s level qualification. 

Once qualified IBCLCs are required to keep up to date with current research by completing ongoing training. They resubmit for their IBCLC certificate every 5 years with proof of attending 75 hours of training. 

IBCLCs can support you with more complicated issues such as faltering growth, tongue tie assessment, breastfeeding problems, reflux, a non latching baby, as well as more straightforward breastfeeding support.

IBCLCs are also obliged to work according to the IBLCE Code of Professional Conduct and carry full professional insurance.
