Lactation Consultant

Alex Thompson


Alex is staff Lactation Consultant and Research Co-Coordinator at the International Breastfeeding Centre (IBC). Alex’s interest in breastfeeding began after completing her training as a Registered Dietitian in 2010. She sought additional education and training at the IBC in Toronto and working with breastfeeding families quickly became her passion and the focus of her career. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant since 2013, Alex has had the pleasure of working with thousands of dyads. She knows that breastfeeding isn’t always easy and the abundance of information and ideas about infant feeding can be overwhelming. She strives to understand each family’s needs and goals in order to find sustainable solutions that help create an enjoyable breastfeeding relationship.
