Milk Magic Educator Program

Are you Passionate about Lactation Education?

The Milk Magic Educator Program was developed to mobilize breastfeeding advocates and enthusiasts through instant access to the tools needed to provide comprehensive and culturally appropriate breastfeeding education and support in your own community. The program was motivated by the recognition of the many systemic barriers to lactation education and support in the Black and Indigenous communities.

Our ultimate goal at Nurturely is to reduce systemic disparities in human milk access by expanding the availability of culturally-matched, community-powered lactation education and support.

The Curriculum

Inclusive, Accessible, Preventative

Content was developed collaboratively by parents, doulas, lactation consultants, researchers, nurses, physicians, and designers with the goal of making content accessible to all. The focus is on common nursing challenges to emphasize realistic preparation. Language and images aim to provide an inclusive, representative space.

All-in-One Toolbox

Membership in the Milk Magic Educator program includes an all-in-one curriculum with digital presentation slides, parent handouts, and all the background research you need to feel confident in your teaching.

About the Trainers

Jennifer Michel-Wilson

Jennifer Michel-Wilson is owner of La BelleDoula Birth Support Services and a CD/PCD (DONA), CLC Birth, Postpartum, Bereavement and Holistic Fertility Doula and Certified Lactation Counselor & Educator as well a Certified Childbirth Educator. La Belle Doula was founded upon the recognition of the extreme lack of compassion in maternal health care, and it became abundantly clear that this was to be Jennifer’s life’s work. 

Beyond being a Doula, Jennifer is an advocate for mental wellness and emotional health – she is a VP Board Member of NAMI, National Alliance of Mental Illness. A proud native New Yorker and loving and devoted wife and mother, she is fiercely dedicated to supporting birthing people and their wellness in all aspects. Seeing a birthing person through preconception, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is both a passion and an honor. Jennifer’s goal is to empower birthing people and their families by not only providing them with the education and tools needed, but also through being an empathetic support system as they go through this unique journey in life. In August 2022 Jennifer was recognized by the Black Breastfeeding Week Organization with an award for Outstanding Work in the Community. After being introduced to the Milk Magic program, Jennifer has been able to learn even more new ways to help clients redefine their relationship with their bodies, relearn ancestral wisdom, reclaim food sovereignty & re-inspire their communities. She has seen the results first hand when birthing people find success not only with their own journey, but are then willing to share with friends & family a renewed passion for breastfeeding. She truly enjoys engaging with my clients and my community at the ground level this way.
