Congratulations on becoming a lactation consultant! This comprehensive book will take you through everything you need to know and do to create an ethical, productive, sustainable, and enjoyable private practice.
Becoming a successful private practice lactation consultant is about so much more than your passion for helping families. You need a solid infrastructure, rock-solid practices, and confidence in your policies.
This book will hold your hand from before you pass the exam through the day-to-day workflow of private practice, and on to ideas and inspirations to help you take your private practice to the next level.
Lactation Private Practice: From Start to Strong (Kindle Version).mobi
Start to Strong is a must read for any IBCLC starting a private practice! Annie Frisbie did an amazing job covering EVERY aspect of getting your business up and running and how to keep it going strong. I have been in private practice for 6 years and many of the topics covered took me years to figure out on my own! Start to Strong will give you a jump start and you'll skip all the frustrating trial and error learning curves!! The additional resources referenced at the end of each chapter make this book invaluable! There were so helpful to me! Thank you so much for this amazing resource!
