Teaching, Workshops, Speaking

My lectures and workshops are offered for in-house education to large and small groups of postpartum caregivers: lactation clinics and associations, hospitals, associations and communities of doulas and midwives, and to peer-support breastfeeding activist groups.



I waive fees for clinics based in inner cities, for that serve ethnic minorities and First Peoples.

$200 for a one-hour lecture.

$300 to maintain the recording and PowerPoint slides for one month.

WORKSHOP: One hour Emotional Integration, Grief and Trauma Resolution

This 60 – 90 minute workshop leads your team into a calm, connected and somatic awareness of oneself and the other. These awareness-building processes are a first step to meeting mothers (and yourself) with a calm presence. 

Anti-Lactogenic / Lactogenic

A one-hour PowerPoint lecture: I review anti-lactogenic foods, herbs, medications, and lifestyle influences, and then turn to the lactogenic foods and herbs, briefly reviewing the well-known reasons for their lactogenicity, and then turning to newer research. 


Transition Diet: Supporting Mammary development in late pregnancy and the early postpartum

A one-hour PowerPoint lecture on the Transition Foods that support mammary tissue development during pregnancy and early postpartum, and that facilitate a more trouble-free start to lactation. We also look at lactogenic herbs and foods are used in treating UTIs and asthma, two common health challenges of new mothers.

Insulin Resistance, Lactation Difficulties and Hydration

A one-hour PowerPoint on 1) the role of insulin in the postpartum, and 2) the impact of insulin resistance and chronic under-hydration on lactation difficulties (delayed lactogenesis, supply difficulties, early return of menstruation) and 3) how specific lactation foods and beverages counteract and potentially remediate these influences.

The Mahmee Team is committed to providing excellence in care and the education that Hilary provided to our team during her lecture helps us to do just that. As a subject matter expert with vast experience, she offered guidance that promotes breastfeeding success as well as overall health. We found the information valuable for our patients and for ourselves!
