Our  Mission


“What does it take to be a leader in our profession? It takes knowledgeinnovative thinking, and community partnerships. The UC Davis Human Lactation Center is a nonprofit, self-supporting center dedicated to developing leaders in lactation. Why? Because we recognize that through education, empowerment and cooperation, lactation professionals can make an enormous difference in the lives of women and children. As Helen Keller so wisely said, ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.’ We are pleased to offer a range of educational products and services designed to keep you at the cutting edge of evidence-based practice. We look forward to working with you.”

Best wishes,
Jane Heinig, PhD, IBCLC Retired
Founding Director

  • Secrets of Baby Behavior Blog
    As part of our work with California WIC, we created a blog (active from 2009 to 2014). While it’s no longer active, we hope you’ll find the information useful. In this blog, you’ll hear from moms who have been in the trenches (and in the classroom), who understand what you are going through and what your baby is trying to tell you.
