Pati Lomeli, IBCLC
While completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at CSU Long Beach, I made ends meet by moonlighting as a newborn photographer in hospitals around Los Angeles. There I fell in love with the work of lactation consultants, who provide hands-on help to new mothers just getting to know their babies. So I took a job as a Management Assistant at the Cedars Sinai Medical Hospital Lactation Center, which put me in the middle of this exciting new world. There I gained experience with postpartum lactation care, and cemented my determination to pursue a career in this field. Right in the middle of my own pregnancy I started on my path to become an IBCLC. But I remain committed to art as a way of connecting with my community, and as a platform for activism in pursuit of equal access to the benefits of modern society. I believe that healthcare is a human right, and that healthcare includes health education—empowering individuals to make informed decisions for themselves and for their families. I’ve been in the lactation world for seven years now, and I’m currently working with the SDSU Research Foundation’s WIC program in San Diego. I am also teaching the lactation class for Nizhoni Midwifery Institute. Recently, I started a Spanish-language support group called Leche de Coco: ABC de Lactancia, with the goal of sharing information and busting myths about breastfeeding. In addition, I provide bilingual breast/chest feeding classes twice a month at FTV For The Village Doula Services by Sabia Wade who is continuing their mission to provide affordable and accessible lactation services to Latinx and BIPOC communities through these programs.
