Great! Now’s your chance. Breastfeed Chicago is looking for extra special ladies to volunteer to help moderate our Facebook group.
We’re looking for women who:
- Have breastfed a baby for at least one year.
- Have taken lactation support classes or have gone through a training program (i.e. IBCLC, LLL leader, Breastfeeding USA counselor, 40-hour peer counselor training…).*
- Can empathize with the unique needs of new moms and understands that each family is different, with different philosophies and experiences.
- Know the limits of online breastfeeding support and will encourage women to get in-person help when they need it.
- Can use evidence-based information to back up advice to other moms.
*Haven’t taken a formal breastfeeding support class, but you’re still interested? Apply anyway and let us get to know you.
