On March 10, 2023 Dr Karen Federici took the stage at TEDxYoungstown, in Youngstown OH, to give her talk, "How Breastfeeding Education is Failing Us." Now with more than 100,000 views on YouTube, her talk calls attention to the historically inadequate breastfeeding and lactation education among physicians. By educating everyone and calling attention to some of the misinformation and advice given to breastfeeding families, we can invoke change and stand up for mothers and babies. Every mother deserves the support needed to succeed in meeting her personal goals, and it's up to all of us to provide that support.

Baby Breastfeeding

Dr. Federici recently became board-certified in Breastfeeding and Lactation Medicine by the North American Board of Breastfeeding and Lactation Medicine. She is honored to be in the first cohort of physicians to be certified, and she is one of only a few certified physicians in Illinois.

As a breastfeeding & lactation medicine physician, she is not only knowledgeable about breastfeeding, but can evaluate, diagnose, and treat more complicated problems that arise.
