As well as her university affiliation, Naomi Hull is also Senior Manager Breastfeeding Information and Research, Australian Breastfeeding Association.
Naomi Hull is a Registered Nurse and an IBCLC of 13yrs during which time she has had her own Private Practice in Brisbane. She attained a Masters of Public Health (Nutrition) in 2017. Her passion for breastfeeding and lactation began after the birth of her first baby and led to training as a peer support counsellor in 2006. During her Master of Public Health, her interest in the ‘bigger picture’ grew stronger and for this reason, chose to look at the implementation of the Australian National Breastfeeding Strategy (2010-2015) as the topic of her Dissertation. Naomi went on from there to become the National Coordinator of the World Breastfeeding Trends Initiative - bringing together the Australian team who have now completed two assessments of Australia’s policies and programs in 2018 and 2023. Naomi also works full-time in the National Support office of the Australian Breastfeeding Association, as a Senior Manager. Key priorities are to ensure up-to-date evidence-based information, advocacy and support of research both within the Association and supporting external projects that are relevant to ABA's mission and vision. She continues to feel strongly about finding a way to improve the breastfeeding experience for families by way of advocating for policy change in Australia.
