IBCLC

So I have decided I want to become an IBCLC. I need to find a career I feel passionate about, and breastfeeding is definitely something I am passionate about. Any LC's on here with advice? I am in the process or trying to find a mentor now, as I plan on going pathway 3.

Thank you for your support ladies! I am currently in the process of becoming a breastfeeding counselor via Breastfeeding USA. That will start my way along pathway 1!
