Guest Blog: Why Did I Become a Lactation Consultant by Hannah Johnson
My love for lactation began as a young nurse on a busy postpartum ward. It wasn’t long before I discovered lactation as an opportunity to empower my new mamas on their unique journeys to nourish their babes. I could make an impact well beyond the first latch by offering evidence-based support during those tiresome nights of learning to breastfeed. Nearly four years later, I am working as a labor and delivery nurse and taking my IBCLC exam in just a few days. I am beyond excited to continue to offer my support to nourish mamas as they nourish their babies.
