Catherine Watson Genna BS, IBCLC, RLC

Catherine Watson Genna is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 1992. She works in private practice in New York City. Catherine is particularly interested in helping moms and babies breastfeed when they have medical challenges. Her speeches, lectures and publications are known around the world. She speaks to healthcare professionals in many countries on assisting breastfeeding babies with anatomical, genetic or neurological problems. Her presentations and her writing feature her clinical photographs, which have also been published widely. Catherine’s research collaboration with Columbia University and Tel Aviv University’s departments of biomedical engineering are studying various aspects of infant sucking, swallowing and nipple biomechanics. She is the author of Selecting and Using Breastfeeding Tools: Improving Care and Outcomes (Praeclarus Press 2009) and Supporting Sucking Skills in Breastfeeding Infants (Jones and Bartlett Learning 2008, 2013, 2017) as well as professional journal articles and chapters in the Core Curriculum for Lactation Consultant Practice and Breastfeeding and Human Lactation. Catherine served as Associate Editor of the United States Lactation Consultant Association’s official journal Clinical Lactation for its first seven years. Catherine is still a La Leche League Leader, supporting new Leaders in Queens. She believes that clinical expertise must go hand in hand with empathy and compassion for breastfeeding families. Her teaching grew out of a strong desire to understand the science underlying breastfeeding and lactation in an effort to find solutions to her clients’ difficulties. Catherine is also a mother of two, who were of course breastfed!
