THE EGYPTIAN LACTATION CONSULTANTS' ASSOCIATION (ELCA)  was announced in July 2004 as an official body embracing the vision and work of Egyptian health workers who are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) in the field of maternal and child health.

Nurture, the scientific journal of ELCA is intended as a forum for the demonstration and advancement of possibly significant and updated insights in the global field of maternal and child health, inclusive of breastfeeding and human lactation and early child feeding realm.

We are securing the continuum of a community intended between all parties interested in maternal and child at large. We aim to provide them with high-quality, up-to-date, peer-reviewed information resources delivered through a range of current, educational articles.

Such scope is inclusive of, but not limited to, pediatricians, obgyns, family medicine specialists, dentists, clinical nutritionists, psychiatrists, pathologists, and imaging professionals. Dieticians and growth-development experts decidedly share the community. Selected savant paramedics, psychologists, and sociologists would have their input as well.

Why Nurture?

Nurture, encouragement, promotion, and amelioration…are a few stand-ins along the conduit to betterment. Community serving is an added value.

As acknowledged, life is but a cycle, and our sensible endeavor would contribute at any point, at any time, and remain supportive of those needed strides along the journey, as long as worthwhile.

Our view at ELCA is that such a process is but a continuum of savant headways for enriching the human experience in many domains throughout the blissful path to global health.

The journey starts with early nutrition, namely the first 6 months-exclusive breastfeeding followed by successful weaning. Solid immunity, good physical and cerebral growth, and expedient emotional propensities; remain additional values that cumulate along the way.

We sincerely remain optimistic in our expectancy, that these headways would help among others- formulate a core nurturing value of what would eventually grow into an “apt individual.”
