Meet Dr. Soulaf Mansour
Certified Lactation Consultant IBCLC and positive discipline coach
I’m a lucky mother of 2 children, Iyad and Sophia who completely changed my life. My journey through breastfeeding and parenting started when I gave birth to my son on the 25th of September 2011.
I thought that breastfeeding will be something very natural, until I had my son on my breast after an exhausting delivery experience. Unfortunately I didn’t have any help and support and really struggled to feed my baby.I’m now convinced that everything happens for a reason. The challenges have driven me to grow and become a certified lactation consultant IBCLC as well as a positive discipline coach.
As a Doctor in Food Sciences, I’m passionate about nutrition and I acknowledge the importance of a healthy lifestyle on a successful breastfeeding and motherhood experience. I truly believe that food is medicine.
My holistic lactation course, as well as my Food Sciences background gave me a strong understanding on how food and lifestyle affect our body. Breastfeeding is the biological norm. Knowing that, a mother can give the best (through her milk) to her child by following a healthy lifestyle. A healthy mother will lead to a healthy child.
As a mother who went through several challenges, the objectives of my consultation is to empower women, and support them in their breastfeeding and parenting journey; by giving them all the advise and tips for a positive and successful experience.
As a French Lebanese, I speak French, Arabic and English.
