I am looking to become a lactation counselor so I can help mothers breastfeed. I plan to use my new certification to offer free services. I am asking you to help me achieve this goal. 

Before giving birth I knew that I would be breastfeeding my son. Breast is Best after all. I had no idea how hard breastfeeding could be. I figured it should be easy. It's natural, right? Well it wasn't/isn't easy. My son was born with a tongue tie and lip tie that caused a quick spiral downward in his health and mine. On our path toward a happy, healthy breastfeeding relationship I met many lactation consultants along the way. They were extremely helpful and without them we would not be where we are today. We just celebrated my son's first birthday and we are still nursing. I would like the opportunity to enter into a world I love, a world of helping new mamas. I would like to pay it forward and help others in the way I have been helped. 

The monies you donate will go toward education and lodging expenses to attend training through Healthy Children's Center for Breastfeeding. http://www.healthychildren.cc

I also blog about breastfeeding and our experiences. Check out my blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/vasowhat
