Lactation Educator Faculty
Attie Sandink is a Registered Nurse, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and Childbirth Educator, and can often be found teaching Child Birth Classes, giving breastfeeding support and education or assisting in the birthing process or catching the occasional baby when necessary. She continues to do training sessions for CAPPA Canada that are in keeping with the 20 Hour Lactation Management course as it ascribes to all standard of the Breastfeeding Committee of Canada. Presently Attie is a Lactation Educator for CAPPA Canada. Attie continues her education regarding Kangaroo Mother Care and the mother/ infant behaviour response. Learning to understand these natural instincts has changed her practice from assisting mothers and infants to breastfeed, to more of guiding role, understanding this process in a much more hands off and normal, allowing the mother and infant dyad to perform instinctually whenever possible. Her husband and her four older sons have been very patient with her passion to support new families.
