Miriam Labbok, MD, MPH, IBCLC

Dr. Miriam Labbok​ has concentrated her teaching, research, and service over the last 40 years on issues related to the support of women and families to achieve reproductive health, with the last 30 dedicated to breastfeeding and related issues. Her more than 150 publications focus on the creation of evidence-­based, sustainable improvement in the reproductive health continuum, primarily in birth, breastfeeding, and birth ­spacing practices.
