Lactation consultants may be one of the first healthcare providers who see mothers following a difficult birth. As such, they can be key sources of support and information for mothers at this critical time. Several aspects of the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant's (IBCLC) scope of practice can fit within trauma-informed care, including helping mothers identify possible trauma symptoms and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and addressing breastfeeding issues that may be sequelae of a traumatic birth. IBCLCs can inform mothers about their treatment options and refer them to additional sources of support. This article describes breastfeeding issues that might arise in the wake of a traumatic birth and summarizes evidence-based treatment options for PTSD so that IBCLCs can share this information with mothers.
