My name is Diana Osorio, I am a mom and I have worked as a Clinical Lactation Consultant for over 21 years in Post-Partum and NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit).
I have provided care and support to over 40,000 moms and their babies, encouraging them and leading them to achieve their personal breastfeeding goals, by listening and providing guidance and support on their journey, without guilt or judgment.
I did my practices at the Miller's Children Hospital in Long Beach, CA, and CHOC of Orange County, where I had the opportunity to learn from the best in the field of NICU and Clinical Lactation.
As a professional, I felt frustrated as I noticed the struggles that breastfeeding moms go through while pumping and collecting their milk, especially for babies who are in the intensive care unit. At the same time, I noticed the significant amount of breastmilk that is wasted in traditional breast pads.
After 12-month extensive research, I concluded that nursing moms who use 2 or more nursing pads per day, can save 4-12 ounces of their precious breastmilk, by just collecting the milk, instead of getting it absorbed and wasted on nursing pads.
This was my motivation to develop a product that helps moms to collect all those precious milk drops that are traditionally wasted in nursing pads or clothing.
Lacticups helps moms in so many ways that I consider Lacticups an Essential, a Must-have for every breastfeeding mom.
I have found my purpose in life through my career as a Lactation Consultant.
Being able to support a mother in such a critical moment in her life is the most rewarding opportunity that life has given me.
Through Lacticups, I can help mothers from far, with a product that was inspired by moms and their babies and created with much love.
