When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

12 years ago

Why did you become an IBCLC?

After the birth of my first son, I expected breastfeeding to come easily and naturally, but it didn’t. I knew there were other families out there that struggled as I did, and I wanted to help.

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

Take it day by day. Some days may be challenging, but it gets easier. Don’t be afraid to ask for support and help. It truly does take a village!
