I had two vastly different breastfeeding experiences due to simple support. My eldest weaned at six months and my youngest weaned at three years old.
I have always loved the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of families.

I knew after I received my LLL Leader training in 2005 that I wanted to take my knowledge and scope to a new level.
Quite simply because I had difficulty breastfeeding my eldest child and weaned at six months due to lack of support and education. While I was pregnant with my youngest, I began attending LLL meetings and after the LLL Leader and group had helped me through oversupply and other issues through postpartum depression, I knew that I wanted to pass that along.
I wish I could tell every parent to meet THEMSELVES where they are and try to be flexible because when it comes down to it, there is no handbook!
