Grow Our Own Lactation Prep Consultant Course

 

Due to the unprecedented events of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of the near future to meet in groups we have had to postpone the start of the Grow Our Own Lactation Consultant course until February 2021. We are in conversation at this time regarding a location and dates and I hope to have another message to you within the month with details.

I apologize for the delay, but I feel the importance of having a face to face group classroom setting because so much of the learning is interactive and through shared experiences. Most of us have gotten used to the on-line “Zoom” meetings but it isn’t the same as being together in one room. Timing is everything and perhaps 2021 will be the perfect time!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me.
