Midwife & Lactation Consultant
María Gómez-Cabrero is a mother, midwife and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) living in Valencia. During her nursing career (Italy, Spain and Ireland) she developed a passion for midwifery. She qualified and registered as a Midwife in Ireland in 2012 and a Lactation Consultant in 2015. After a decade in Dublin, she returned to Spain. She initially worked as part of a home-birth midwifery team called Titània in Barcelona, with women and families throughout their pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.
Since 2017, María has worked in a public maternity hospital in her hometown, Valencia. She also offers private lactation support and midwifery care, tailored to meet each woman’s individual needs. Maria is passionate about holistic family-centred continuity of care.
María can help you prepare your breastfeeding:
- If you want to master your breastfeeding experience.
- If you had a previous difficult experience with breastfeeding.
- If you are pregnant with twins, twins or triplets.
- If your baby may be born with a congenital disease.
- If you have had previous breast surgery (augmentation or reduction mammoplasty, mastectomy, resection of fibroadenomas, cysts, tumors, etc…).
- If you think there is any reason why it will be very difficult for you to breastfeed.
- If you are concerned that some aspect of your health may hinder your breastfeeding (diabetes, hypothyroidism, obesity, compatibility with medications, etc…).
- If you are interested in an induced lactation (adoptive mother, partner of a mother who wants to share the experience of breastfeeding)
What we like about them
In their own words
My best recommendations for a positive birth experience are: antenatal education by a midwife for both mum and partner, a personalised birth plan, and identifying and working out their fears during pregnancy so that at the time of labour, they are well able to trust nature, let it happen and enjoy their unique experience. Society has lost trust in women’s ability to give birth naturally. When a woman has a positive birth experience, postpartum weeks and breastfeeding tend to just flow.” María
