Hello, this is not for me, but because (due to my business) I've spent hours on the phone in the past few days with women who are distraught about breastfeeding issues, I would love to have a database of supportive lactation consultants to refer people on to.
I don't want to just randomly refer them to a name on a list because of horror stories I've heard.
Hoping to avoid:
- anyone who treats breastfeding like a science experiment (ie tlels you to pump 10 mins then hand express 10 mins every 2 hours on the dot then whatever x put your left foot in and your left foot out type stuff that is just not realistic)
- anyone who makes women feel small or inadequate
Hoping to find lactation consultants who:
- have more of a no fuss approach premised on the supply demand principle and feed, feed, feed
- won't stress women out!
Please tell me your success stories and good experiences!!!
