Chelsie Robertson (South Auckland, New Zealand)
Chelsie lives in South Auckland, New Zealand, with her husband and 3 young sons’ ages 5, 3 and 1. She has previously been involved with Breastfeeding New Zealand and LLL in a peer counsellor capacity as a mother to mother support person. This sparked Chelsie’s passion for growing her lactation community in New Zealand. Currently she works as a self-employed primary care midwife, in partnership with women and families, facilitating normal birthing and postnatal care.
Upon successful completion of the IBCLC exam, Chelsie hopes to explore the possibilities of milk banking and milk sharing in New Zealand, focus on being a voice, and advocate for the breastfeeding women around New Zealand.
Health e-Learning proudly supported Chelsie's goal by helping her study during 2014/15 and she successfully achieve certification as an IBCLC in 2015. Congratulations Chelsie!
