When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

When I started to work with families in the community as a CLC. I wanted to learn as much as I could about lactation and do the best I could at helping families.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

I had very little help when I was breastfeeding my babies. I want to be able to help others so they don’t feel so alone and vulnerable.

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

I would tell them to trust the process and trust themselves and their baby. And see an IBCLC!!
