I am a Swiss holistic lactation consultant, certified during my residence in Switzerland. My education includes special studies in nutrition, herbalism, yoga and acupuressure to relieve breastfeeding and postpartum problems.
At the time my book Mother Food was published, it was taboo to speak of these subjects. Today, the use of lactogenic foods and herbs has become mainstream. Around the world, researchers are looking seriously into the ways that nutrition supports milk production.
In 2000, I was honored to be a founding member of “MOBI Motherhood Intl,” the first support group to embrace breastfeeding mothers with unexplained breastfeeding problems.
Sadly, even if breastfeeding problems could be overcome, our members were often scarred by emotional pain that in many cases did not resolve. In 2013, I certified in clinical hypnotheapy with studies in medical support and trauma. I opened my practice to mothers.
My work is one-on-one online. I offer emotional counselling and weave in nutritional and herbal support as needed. I work with mothers around the world. Feel free to give me a call.
Books by Hilary Jacobson:
Mother Food: a breastfeeding diet guide with lactogenic foods and herbs is beloved by IBCLCs, doulas, nutritionists, dietitians and many, many mothers. It is presently being translated into Korean.
Healing Breastfeeding Grief starts mothers on their journey of emotional healing when breastfeeding doesn’t work out. As one reviewer puts it, “The healing begins on the very first page.”
