LiquidGoldConcept was founded in 2014 at the University of Michigan by four graduate students—Ileisha, Anna, Jeff, and Samantha. From the beginning, we have been committed to working with health providers and parents to develop breastfeeding education resources that are evidence-based, hands-on, and comprehensive.
Today, we are proud to be the first to develop a realistic, hands-on comprehensive breastfeeding training tool—a Lactation Simulation Model—with which parents and health providers can use to learn to alleviate, improve, or prevent the most common breast and breastfeeding–related problems.
