First off, thank you to the wonderful ladies who came to spend time with me at the Barnes & Noble in Clay today. Being able to talk with you and benefit from your experience and wisdom was a real treat for me. Diane Starsiak, Chris Herrera, Roz and Carmen; you are all a wealth of information and I can't wait to meet with you again. I wish we had been able to get a picture of all the doulas that were there together.
It's not too late to purchase things from the book fair fundraiser to benefit MILCC. Here is the note that Anne sent out:
"Attention prospective and current IBCLCs interested in MILCC!
