Chris Clark

Chris Clark has spent three decades helping women with breastfeeding. One of her proudest accomplishments was bringing Kangaroo Care, a method of caring for premature babies using skin-to-skin contact, to the United States when her own child was born prematurely. Since becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 1999, Chris has been involved with mother support groups, high-risk birthing centers and rural hospitals. She is certified to provide training to hospitals to assist them in becoming 'Baby Friendly," a World Health Organization designation that recognizes hospitals offering optimal care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding. With Chris's help, Regions Hospital became Baby Friendly in January of 2015. Chris has a passion for developing mentoring programs to help aspiring Lactation Consultants develop their skills, and her four children and four grandchildren help keep her pretty busy, too!
