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. 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, specialising in antenatal and postnatal care.
I am here to help and support you through your milk-making journey. To answer all your questions and listen to worries, doubts and concerns. But most importantly I am here to provide unbiased, evidence-based support that works for your unique situation. 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. With my little self-drawn designs I want to create little sparkly celebrations for these moments that often get forgotten by others, and that truly deserve so much credit. My designs are to celebrate the physical and emotional work that goes into breastfeeding and pumping. I am passionate about normalising all aspects of breastfeeding, pumping, and supporting mamas throughout their milk-making journey by celebrating these small and big milestones.
