Danielle Gauss, IBCLC: What happens when a birth professional struggles to breastfeed? Episode 331

"No mother should have to go through this". 

Join Lisa as she chats with a like-mined IBCLC Danielle Gauss, aka the "Booby Fairy", about many topics related to professional and personal journeys, and how they intersect, including:

How breastfeeding experiences can be different between first and second babies (hint: it doesn't always get easier).

- How breastfeeding challenges led to post partum depression for Danielle.

- How, even as a doula, Daniele didn't realize that she needed an IBCLC.

- How hospital IBCLCs are often limited or "gagged" from discussing tongue tie.

- The links to ADHD, sleep, and airway (yes, this keeps coming up on our podcast) that has been a part of  Danielle's family's story. 

- The aspects of IBCLC care that elevate us to advanced practice status. 

- Taking care of survivors of abuse and ALWAYS asking permission to touch everyone.

- How we honor the story of the mom, the infant, and the birth.

And the need to stop blaming mothers!
