Lara Tauritz-Bakker

Lara Tauritz Bakker graduated from Erasmus University in Rotterdam in January 2021 and she is now training to become a family physician. She was inspired to go to medical school after all when she discovered how little scientific knowledge we have to deal with breastfeeding problems while writing as a science journalist for a major medical magazine (Medisch Contact). She became a student member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine in 2014 and helped organize the European ABM conference in 2018. Her master’s thesis, published in the Journal of Human Lactation in 2020, focused on the prescription of domperidone by family physicians in cases of lactation insufficiency.
