I enjoy helping educate people on breast feeding. I firmly believe knowledge is powering any situation. I love empowering women.
At one time I wanted to become a nurse, but decided it wasn't for me and took a completely different career path.
After pondering with the idea of starting a new career for a while, I decided to go back to school. For a while I considered teaching, but now I'm thinking maybe I should become a lactation consultant.
Today I talked to a good friend who recently just started an IBCLC program. She recommended the school she is attending because they have a great online program and set up all of your clinically and even register you for the IBCLC exam.
I called their enrollment coordinator and I am very impressed. I was also pleased to find out that most of my credits will transfer so I have most of my general education requirements covered.
The program will give me a Bacherlor's degree in Matneral Child Health.
I could start this summer, but I think I am going to wait until fall. We have a very busy summer planned, and I think it will be easier to start once my oldest DS starts school this fall.
Now I guess the only issue is telling my family without them thinking I'm a nut job!
