OLCA (Ohio Lactation Consultant Association) is one of the oldest lactation consultant organizations in the country. 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.
