My name is Maria (IBCLC) and I am a London-based German mama of two little girls. I started Milk Making Mama as a community to help mums get together and to motivate, educate and support each other through their breastfeeding, pumping, and bottle-feeding journeys. I am a qualified antenatal teacher, doula, and international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). I have a BSC in Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, specializing in antenatal and postnatal care. I currently run NHS community breastfeeding cafés in London that are free to attend and can provide a wonderful meeting point for fellow milk-making mamas and to receive specialist support.
