The world-first online lactation care support system LactaMap, designed to help GPs support patients who have problems breastfeeding, will be unveiled for the first time in the UK at the 14th International Breastfeeding and Lactation Symposium this week (4th & 5th April).

Developed by researchers at The University of Western Australia and being presented in the UK for the first time, LactaMap is a unique evidence-based information platform to support doctors caring for women and infants experiencing difficulty with lactation.

It is a result of over 10 years of research by a team of researchers and health professionals including doctors, paediatricians, midwives, lactation consultants, and pharmacists.

It contains more than 100 clinical practice guidelines together with related patient information documents, supporting information documents, and articles describing normal function, all supported by more than 1000 references.
