About Us – Hazelbaker Lactation Institute

The Hazelbaker Lactation Institute (HLI) hosts one-day and week-long in-person courses for lactation professionals and advanced-practice craniosacral therapists. The Hazelbaker Lactation Institute does not provide clinical lactation services. These services are provided through Dr. Hazelbaker's private practice, Spirit of Healing (SOH). Both HLI and Spirit of Healing are conveniently located near Rt. 315 and Bethel Road at 5115 Olentangy River Road (just north of Bethel) in Columbus, Ohio.
