There are several options to move into an office setting as an IBCLC, from setting up in a physician's office to sharing an office space to building your own home office.

    The good news is that there are many healthy coping mechanisms and strategies, such as leaning on a trusted support team to seeking therapy from mental health professionals. Getting the help we need improves our stress levels and, by default, makes us more effective in providing help to our clients too.

An absolute must for anyone interested in private practice as an IBCLC

I love this podcast! I’m so thankful to Annie and Leah for compiling such amazing information. I feel inspired and excited for the next steps in my IBCLC business journey!

So helpful for anyone who works or volunteers in the lactation field!

This podcast is one-of-a-kind, offering an opportunity to hear from IBCLCs in private practice who are working through the business issues we all face. Annie and Leah’s style is comfortable and friendly, and they often remind us of the reasons we do this work. While they talk mostly of topics pertaining to lactation practice in the US and Canada, there is still very valuable content for lactation care providers outside of North America. Many thanks to both Annie and Leah for taking this leap into podcasting and pushing our field forward!
