Our Lactation Simulation Model (LSM) is a comprehensive breastfeeding simulator that can teach parents and health providers how to identify, prevent, or manage over 25 common breast and breastfeeding-related prenatal and postpartum concerns.

Our LSM can be used by:

  • A pregnant mother at a prenatal class
  • A standardized patient for medical/nursing student exams
  • A lactation consultant during a postpartum visit
  • A hospital for Baby-Friendly training requirements
    All LSMs are hand-made and hand-painted in Ann Arbor, MI. Expect 4-6 weeks for delivery.

      About Us

      Hands-on, comprehensive breastfeeding education

      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. Read on to learn about how we got to where we are today.
