Mar 26 2024 • 47 mins

Continuing on the world tour of breastfeeding support and oral ties, Katie Oshita meets with Diana Marcinkevičienė to discuss lactation, access to care, and oral tethers in both the US (PNW is Katie's location) and Lithuania where Diana practices.  Life is very different for parents and providers when comparing- from the long two-year maternity leave to the number of IBCLC's.  Both Katie and Diana reflect on similarities in their practices as well, as lactation and need for support is universal.  Listen here for more about breastfeeding in Lithuania.

Podcast Guest: Diana Marcinkevičienė is a mum of four children (three boys and one girl, aged from 10 to one year old). Since the first time she heard about IBCLC (back in 2012) - it was her dream to become one. In 2021 Diana passed the exam and now I work in a private practice (named Noriu žindyti, with the meaning of - I want to breastfeed).  Diana loves helping families with their breastfeeding struggles in Lithuania.
