Why I Want to Be an IBCLC
What made you want to become an IBCLC?
I want to become an IBCLC because of the love I have for breastfeeding in general and my passion for helping moms reach their breastfeeding goals.
How do you hope to make a difference as an IBCLC?
I hope to help as many breastfeeding moms as possible, especially African-Americans and Black moms. I want them to know they can breastfeed and meet their goals, regardless of any obstacles they might face. I want to be that person, that familiar face, who is there to help.
