Pamela Douglas


GP, Lactation Consultant, Breastfeeding Medicine Specialist

Dr Pamela Douglas is a GP, educator, and researcher. She is founder of the charity Possums for Mothers and Babies, and has developed Neuroprotective Developmental Care, or the Possums programs, over the past twenty years. She is an Associate Professor (Adjunct) with the Maternity Newborn and Families Research Centre MHIQ, Griffith University, and a Senior Lecturer with the Discipline of General Practice, The University of Queensland. She enjoys working with families across the spectrum of challenges in early life, including breastfeeding difficulties, unsettled infant behaviour, reflux, colic, allergies, tongue-tie and oral connective tissue problems, and gut problems. She first qualified as a lactation consultant in 1994, and has developed a uniquely holistic, non-judgemental, and empowering approach to breastfeeding support (gestalt breastfeeding). She is dedicated to prevention and early intervention for both parent mental health issues and childhood learning, behaviour, and developmental problems.
