Pinky McKay IBCLC
Pinky joined the Cambridge group
of LLLNZ in the mid 1970s and became a leader in the Hamilton group in 1976.
She spent the next 20 years breastfeeding (5 kids). Pinky and her family now live in Melbourne, Australia, but she still calls New Zealand home.
Pinky McKay is one of Australia’s most recognised and respected breastfeeding experts. She’s an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and best-selling author.
Pinky specializes in gentle parenting styles that honour mothers’ natural instincts to respond to their babies. "LLL was my 'home' when I was a young mum floundering and confused against pressure to wean my first baby, went along to meetings in Cambridge when he was a year old to find out how to wean him - was SOO relieved to discover I didn't have to DO anything that didn't feel right."
