I have studied breastfeeding support with Breastfeeding London which fullfills the lactation hours necessary to take the IBCLE exam (International Board Certified Lactation Exam).
I found that when supporting women postnatally many questions about feeding would come up. I wanted to put myself in a better position to provide accurate, current and evidence-based information about infant feeding and lactation to the families I was supporting. Although I have a wonderful network of Lactation Consultants who are IBCLC registered around me that I signpost families to, I wanted to deepen my own knowledge base.
I support a woman's choice, and I will do my best to help her reflect on what is right for her, her baby, and her family.
