Dr. Pamela Abramson-Levine is a Pediatric, Prenatal, & Family Practice Non-Force Chiropractor, and an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant. Her offices are on Ocean Park Boulevard and 29th Street in Santa Monica. Dr. Abramson-Levine’s journey to become a lactation consultant began as she witnessed many of her infant patients’ improved latch and breastfeeding outcomes as a result of her performing gentle adjustments to the newborns’ cranial bones, sacrum, pelvis, & vertebra. This inspired Dr. A to want to learn more ways to assist and support mothers and babies to successfully breastfeed. People often say to her “You’re so lucky to be around babies all day long!” To which she answers “Yes! And I am also so lucky to be around mommas all day long!” Dr. A. incorporates nutritional counseling, therapeutic exercise, herbal medicine, homeopathy, Ayurveda, and other natural health care methods into caring for her adult and pediatric patients. She is the mother of two adult children, both of whom were exclusively breastfed. Her firstborn was late premature, and had challenges with nursing, which were overcome thanks to the help of two IBCLCs, her own determination and commitment to exclusively breastfeed, and a nurturing breastfeeding support group. Dr. A. earned her Bachelor of Sciences degree in Physiological Sciences/Kinesiology from UCLA, her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences, and her Lactation Consultant education at UC San Diego. Dr. A specializes in Directional Non-Force Technique® (DNFT) adjustments, a very gentle and effective method of realigning the body to regain optimal biomechanical and neurological function, as well as to decrease pain. Dr. Abramson-Levine is also certified in the Webster Technique, a system for adjusting and properly aligning the pregnant pelvis and its associated structures in order to improve childbirth outcomes. Dr. A is passionate about helping new mothers and their babies in their breastfeeding journeys. Dr. Abramson-Levine has been in practice since 1993.
