In my area the prevalence of breastfeeding has grown, and now is at an all time high. Unfortunately many moms and moms to be are not fully educated on the benefits and how-to's of breast feeding, and as I have experienced it first hand (well, pumping actually... can't breast feed, something medical) Id love to share what I know. I have found multitudes of job openings for breast feeding counselors but they all require taking a course to be certified. THIS is where you ladies come in. Im trying to find a course to take to become a counselor but am having difficulties finding what needs to be done to do it. I live in the southside chicago area and am wondering if anyone might be able to help out at all. Does the LLL have courses I can take, or any information on where to go to find any? I would really truly appreciate any and all advice and encouragement as many in my family think this is simply a pipe dream. I actually am excited about this, something I haven't been in a while. Im sticking to my guns. Even if it means student loans Im willing to try my best to realize this goal. Thanks!
