Because this is so long, myself and others have picked up a habit of calling ourselves LCs or lactation consultants.
This was fine for a while, however in recent years there have been many weekend or week long courses that have cropped up and when
a person graduates from that course, they can call themselves a LC  ( lactation consultant) or  or an LS ( lactation specialist)or BC (breastfeeding counselor)  or CBC  ( certified breastfeeding counselor) or CLC ( certified lactation consultant)  or any number of titles.

Sarah was born in Cincinnati, Ohio.   When she was 5 years old,  her parents were divorced and she moved to California to a very small hippie town. Her mom and stepdad were hippies. She had an older sister and a younger brother and she was the middle child. She also had  a couple of step sisters and half brothers.  Sarah looks back fondly and says that she had a nice childhood.   She was homeschooled for 5 years.  Her family traveled from San Francisco, up and down the coastline in a sailboat for most of her childhood.  Her dad lived in Cincinnati and she  visited him for summers.  Her family spent their time on a  52 foot sailboat, mostly in the Bay area.  In the summers, her family sailed down to Santa Barbara and back up.  Homeschooling was year round.

There was a big announcement made in the last few days.
This affects many mothers and children.  I believe the decision I am going to talk about is in the best interest of mothers and children
and yet there is controversy surrounding it.  I find that what is usually lying beneath controversy is FEAR.
 
So, let's get into it.  What was this announcement anyway
 
Have you heard of the WIC program.  It stands for Womans, Infants and Children.
healthcare referrals for income-eligible women who are pregnant or post-partum, infants, and children up to age 5.
 
It  is a federal public health nutrition program administered by the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA), 
The National WIC Association (NWA) is a non-profit membership association that advocates for WIC and provides education and training to WIC staff.
NWA does not create WIC policy or have oversight of WIC. NWA recently had a Nutrition Education and Breastfeeding Promotion Conference here they made a pretty big announcement.

I like being able to share stories of the families that I work with. I also want to be sure that I respect everyone's privacy.  I have said this in previous shows, however, we are doing fabulous here at AAB and gaining many new listeners every week.  For the newest listeners, I want you to know that I share stories so that we may all learn from them.  When I share a story, I change and rearrange and leave out as much information as I possibly can, while still keeping the foundation of the story real.  I change so much that no one will ever guess who it is, even if you think it is you, it probably isn't.  I might say that I saw the mom this week and it could have been a few months ago.  Your boy is now  girl.  Your significant other may be a male or female, attended the consult or not,, and if it is not relevant to the story, I will change that up also. Again, the important parts are real and are what  happened.

We continue on with this amazing interview with Maureen Minchin who is giving us a lot of information that you really won’t find in too  many other places.  She is really helping us understanding about infant formula and its relationship with long term health.  She is doing a great job of educating us without being overly concerned about upsetting anyone.  Maureen is very angry at what she was not told as a young mother and feeding her baby & she is on a mission, even if it upsets the apple cart, to educate parents about infant feeding.   She says that if educators had to worry about making parents feel guilty about many of the subjects, we would be missing out on very important information and that would be negligent.
Take a listen.
