The International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Geraldine Cahill has been elected by the ILCA membership to the Board of Directors. Her three-year term will commence July 2016. We look forward to working with her to continue ILCA’s mission: to advance the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) profession worldwide through leadership, advocacy, professional development, and research.
Geraldine comes to us as a private practice lactation consultant in Co. Cork, Ireland where she provides home visits so that she can see a mother in her own surroundings. Her professional plan in the coming years is to develop a curriculum and provide education to healthcare professionals suitable for those who would like to become International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs). She has been a voluntary Breastfeeding Counsellor with Cuidiú since 1993 and has been tutoring Breastfeeding Counsellors all over Ireland since 2000. She has spoken at many Association of Lactation Consultants of Ireland (ALCI) and Cuidiú conference on topics ranging from informed decision making and counseling to anatomy and physiology. She was the ILCA/WABA Chris Mulford Fellow in 2014 and a part of the European Panel at the 2014 Lactation Summit, co-hosted by ILCA, IBLCE, and LEAARC.
