Leslie Cree, BA IBCLC

Leslie Cree, BA IBCLC, has been a board-certified lactation consultant since 2007. Her introduction to breastfeeding came in 1996, with the birth of her daughter. Challenges with breastfeeding baby number two, and the subsequent research journey to resolve them, led to an interest in helping other mothers meet their feeding goals. While working as a hospital-based lactation consultant, Leslie participated in helping one hospital achieve Baby Friendly designation and another to redesignate. Her passion is to bring evidence-based information and compassionate care to her patients. Leslie has served as the immediate past chair of the Pennsylvania Breastfeeding Coalition and participates actively in advocacy and equity projects to reduce health disparities in at-risk populations. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.
