Guest Blog: Why Did I Become a Lactation Consultant by Dr. Faten Tamim
"It was going natural as well as with my 1st baby, but things did not seem to be well. Lots of pain, suffering with each feed, frustration and upset most of the time wondering what's going on? It was an easy issue with chronic suffer. It was poor latch. This tiny baby of 35 wks gestation couldn't latch appropriately causing crushing of the nipples and inducing sever pain. Thanks God it was resolved within few days after correction. After 10 months, I received a training of breastfeeding management I found that it was poor latch. Here came the passion to help other moms who are suffering for nothing and decided to become an IBCLC."
