Im a postpartum doula. Ive interned with an ibclc and would like to at some point return and certify but for now enjoying doula work.

I went to help a mom yesterday with 3 nursing sessions. Baby was 4weeks old and nursing only 1-3xs per day succesfully and mom was pumping a lot. She did well for 3 feeds I was there with a little work. Called mom today to see how its been going and babys been exclusively nursing, had weight check today and was up 2oz since monday so doc said stop supplements. Im SO happy! Poor moms been trying SO hard. Also, the best news is doctor wanted my number so she can refer other moms to me :-) yay!! Im not a lactation consultant, so I cant diagnos or treat, but many moms see LC get an action plan but still need more support and hands on help. So glad she got it down :-)
