When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

When I was preparing for my first baby. I was clueless and wanted to learn everything I could. I needed extra help from a lactation consultant when I was nursing him.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

I want others to be able to have the best experience that they can when feeding and caring for their children.

What do you wish you could tell every parent (that they would actually do) and why?

I wish everyone knew that just because its hard in the beginning, it doesn't mean that they're failing and that it will always be hard. It gets better and I want them to feel comfortable asking for help if they feel that they need it.
