About Ruth Seaton

My desire is to come alongside families to support your breastfeeding journey. I want to listen to your needs and wants, combine that with my knowledge and experience, and together create a plan that nourishes the whole family.

My professional qualifications include working as a nurse in the USA for 10 years, in the Neonatal ICU and High Risk Obstetrics Clinic. In addition to my certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I also hold a certification in NICU Nursing & a Masters degree in Nursing Education. My experiences as a nurse have provided me an excellent background in lactation and newborn feeding.

I am a native English speaker.

As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I follow the WHO Code, which is fully called The International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes. It means that parents should be able to make their own choice for their child's nutrition without influence from commercial parties.

I adhere to the WHO Code in its most comprehensive form. I endorse the WHO Code, which is why I only work with brands & products that also adhere to the WHO Code.

The WHO Code aims to protect and promote breastfeeding, ensure parents receive correct and sufficient information, ensure breastmilk substitutes are used appropriately when necessary, ensure the sale and advertising of baby food and formula are followed.
