Geraldine Miskin is an internationally recognised independent breastfeeding specialist, who has over 20 years' experience working with families through her private practice in West London, UK. While studying paediatric nutrition, Geraldine worked as a nanny and maternity nurse before changing her career path. She was chosen out of over 300 applicants to complete a unique 18-month internship with a leading board certified lactation consultant, before studying human lactation in depth. Having seen first hand a real need for guidance based on individual circumstance, anatomy and lifestyle while working as a maternity nurse, she set about learning the science behind breastfeeding, believing that birth, anatomical variations as well as baby's ability to feed, greatly influenced breastfeeding outcomes. She developed a unique algorithm and methodology called the Miskin Method in 2007. Her practice-based research has deduced two fundamental points namely that babies breastfeed and mums make milk and that supply is driven by drainage not demand, which have revolutionised parents' and professionals' approach to breastfeeding. She is the founder and co-owner of Miskin Maternity, an agency providing maternity nurses extensively trained in the Miskin Method and exclusively delivers the breastfeeding workshops for the Bump Classes with Marina Fogle.
