Virginia Thorley is one of the pioneers of the breastfeeding movement in Australia. Her interest began when, living in a remote area, she sought personal breastfeeding help from La Leche League by letter. She has subsequently filled a number of roles for the Australian Breastfeeding Association. Dr Thorley has published widely in refereed journals, as well as books and book chapters. She was in the first cohort to certify IBCLC in 1985, and is a Medical Historian with two research higher degrees. In 2008 she was inducted as a Fellow of International Lactation Consultant Association (FILCA).
