  • Speaker Type: Breastfeeding Medicine: Advancing Your Level of Care Lecture Pack
  • Country: New Zealand

Dr. Yvonne LeFort has been a family physician for over 25 years and is based in Auckland New Zealand. She is a graduate of Dalhousie Medical School and University of Calgary Family Medicine in Canada. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine since 2013.

She has been involved in helping breastfeeding mothers and babies for 18 years. Her specific interest in tongue tie and its management was nurtured through her association with Dr. Evelyn Jain who was a true pioneer in the recognition of the importance of breastfeeding and the impact that untreated ankyloglossia can cause on the breastfeeding experience.

Dr. LeFort has established a private Breastfeeding Clinic in Auckland New Zealand providing comprehensive lactation care for mothers and their infants. Her service includes the management of tongue tie and involves a lactation consultant for parallel breastfeeding support.
