Krista-GrayKrista Gray (Egypt)

Krista is a La Leche League Leader who, until recent political turmoil, was living with her family in Egypt. Krista was instrumental in setting up a non-governmental organisation in Egypt involving doctors and IBCLCs, the focus of which is women’s and children’s health issues from pregnancy through the first two years of life.

Once qualified as an IBCLC herself Krista plans to work in partnership with medical, nursing and lactation staff to establish education for pregnant women and hospital and nursing staff, and focus on changing hospital practices to facilitate normal birthing and implement Baby Friendly Initiatives.

Health e-Learning proudly supported Krista's goals by helping her study during 2011/13 and successfully achieve certification as an IBCLC in 2013. Congratulations Krista!
