Meet your IBCLC
My name is Mara Lubic, I started this company in the summer of 2019, to help local mommies obtain the care and assistance, they deserve during this beautiful journey of childbirth and lactation.
I started my educational path at Palm Beach State College and obtained my Associates and LPN certification in 2009. After graduation, I started working in endocrinology. It has given me a knowledge base to help mothers with complex medical histories, such as diabetes or thyroid disorders.
In fall of 2013, I earned my Bachelors of Health Sciences from Kaplan University with distinction of Summa Cum Laude.
After the birth of our second daughter in August of 2013, I went to a local BabyCafe in El Paso, Texas looking for breastfeeding help. As a military spouse,at the time, it was very difficult to find support so far away from home. My breastfeeding experience with our first daughter was a struggle, and I was determined to make this journey with our second daughter different and successful. It was there, at Baby Cafe of El Paso, where I first realized my true calling of lactation!
I earned my International Board Certification in Lactation in 2015. I began working for one of the field's leading IBCLC's in Columbia, SC - Denise Altman RN, IBCLC.
Over the years I have worked with hundreds of infants, and have a special interest determining how the infant structure affects the infant’s function. This can include tongue or lip ties, torticollis, birth trauma, or molding from uterine positioning.
I can’t wait to help you, reach your breastfeeding goals!

What is an IBCLC ?
An Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) is a member of your health care team who has a specialist knowledge of, and primary focus on, breastfeeding.
They are the consultants whom mothers and other health professionals turn to when skilled assistance is required.
With a focus on preventive health care, IBCLCs encourage self-care, empowering parents to make their own decisions, prenatally and postnatally.
IBCLCs use a problem solving approach to provide appropriate information, recommendations and referrals. They work in a variety of settings.
IBCLCs have passed a rigorous certification exam and keep their knowledge and skills up to date through a compulsory re-certification program. They are required to practice within a Code of Ethics.
