I am so excited to be featured on Baby Chick‘s blog as the Mommy Chick of the Month!
I shared my story about how Lactation Link got started, the most rewarding and challenging part of my job, my favorite breastfeeding products, and some motherhood talk!
Here’s just one of the questions I answer!
What inspired you to become a lactation consultant and childbirth educator?
I became interested in learning more about breastfeeding support as a new labor and delivery nurse. I enjoy being apart of that rare and special time with a family when they welcome a new little one. I also had great experiences breastfeeding my own two babies, and when I breastfed through unexpected illness and three surgeries with my second, I think that’s when my interest turned into a passion.
