Getting to know the IBCLCs of Metropolitan Breastfeeding!
1. What motivated you to become an IBCLC?
Julie Clark says: I have always had a strong calling to women’s health. For many years, I worked at a local domestic and sexual violence shelter, then on to working with women who had HIV/AIDS. The last ten years I have been providing support to families by helping them to understand attachment and peaceful parenting. I came to be an IBCLC because I saw how I could help families in their homes in those special moments after a baby is born.
2. What is your favorite/best tip for new moms?
Julie Clark says: Stay in bed and rest. Let others clean your house and cook your meals.
3. If you weren’t an IBCLC, what would be your dream job?
Julie Clark says: Running a women’s health clinic.
4. (just for fun) What is your favorite holiday?
Groundhog’s Day (it’s my birthday:)
