This is a free presentation from Nancy Mohrbacher, to honor all the amazing IBCLCs around the world.
Every day IBCLCs improve the health of our future generations and empower families with their amazing work. Those of us who have been drawn to the work of caring for breastfeeding families, play a critical role in shaping the future of our society. We should never underestimate the power that skilled IBCLC support and counselling can have during a vulnerable time in the lives of both parents and babies.
As Nancy points out, Excellence as an IBCLC isn’t about clinical skills alone. Attitude and approach play a big role in how our clients respond to our efforts to help with breastfeeding. This presentation looks at recent research that provides insight into how breastfeeding help is perceived by the families in our care. Knowledge gained from this session can help you to elevate both your practice and our profession as a whole. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to gain valuable education while sharing in the passion and excitement as we celebrate IBCLC day together!
