To be the voice of Ohio Lactation Consultants in their efforts to transform society into a breastfeeding culture. To empower, support, and educate our membership enabling them to be articulate agents for change.
OLCA (Ohio Lactation Consultant Association ) is one of the oldest and most active affiliates of the International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA). Our close ties to ILCA are strengthened by the direct involvement of our members. We fully embrace and are committed to the directives included in the World Health Organization, the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes, The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, and the ILCA Position Paper on Infant Feeding.
Members of OLCA come from all over the state of Ohio. You do not have to be a certified Lactation Consultant to belong. Our members bring with them a wish to support and promote breastfeeding in our state. Some are members of the medical field, some are dietitians, others belong to LLL. Many of our members are active in other professional associations and serve as links for breastfeeding dialogue across the state.
