Episode 39: What to Expect from Your Lactation Consultant

 

In today's episode, Jacqueline answers a listener question: "Hey Jacqueline, would you consider doing a podcast on what working with an IBCLC should look like? I hear from so many moms that have a breastfeeding issue like low supply or nursing strike. They have tried ‘everything’ under the sun and hired an IBCLC or LC too, but their issue just doesn’t improve. And now their back to hacking it alone or stopping all together. What is reasonable to expect from an IBCLC and what should they do if they can’t solve your issue? It would be really cool if a standard of care existed (even if it’s just one IBCLC’s opinion) so people could evaluate the care they have received."

In this episode you'll hear:

  • The standard of care Jacqueline uses and teaches
  • How to know whether or not you're getting great care from your IBCLC
  • Questions to ask when interviewing a lactation consultant
