IMPORTANT UPDATE: I got my results and I passed the exam! I am now an IBCLC!
On Tuesday, October 3rd I wrote the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) Exam that (if I pass) will qualify me as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have been immersed in this world for a very long time, so the letters (IBLCE and IBCLC) tend to roll off my tongue, but I know many people (my loving husband included) have no idea what they mean so I thought I would explain a bit here.
Earlier this month I wrote up the story of our miscarriage for a friends blog. (Want to read it? You can find it here...http://www.juliesaunders.ca/blog/jandys-story). The post itself was cathartic to write, I found I enjoyed putting my thoughts and feelings down on paper. And, I'd been thinking about doing this for some time, so...here you go. My FIRST OFFICIAL BLOG POST!
Like I said, I've been thinking about doing this for a while (so long that I actually have a list of topics I want to cover in my journal) but now that I sit down to actually do it, I have NO idea where to start.
so, 'lets start at the very beginning. Seems a very good place, to start!'
