Looking for the most in depth intro to lactation course out there?  This is it!  


As this class is fast paced, it is better suited to those who have basic lactation knowledge.  Highly motivated newbies definitely encouraged to join in, but weekly chat might be a better pace if you are completely green to lactation.

Please feel free to email me with questions!

This history of nursing in the United States (with an emphasis on African American history)
