I am clearly the dinosaur of the bunch :) I have been helping moms and babies with breastfeeding since before the formal IBCLC profession was born.I took the exam for the first time in 1993 and have re-certified every 10 years since, except for taking it early in 2011 to sit the exam with my daughter, Faith.
In the years before 1993, I was a La Leche League Leader, first certifying in Germany in 1977. I later served as a Leader in Philadelphia, PA and in Killeen, TX. Being a military family, we moved every 2-3 years, so with 6 moves, there were 6 babies.
