Clare in Boobland - Part I

Updated: Feb 24, 2020

For World Breastfeeding Week I thought it might be a nice idea to share the story of how I came to get sucked up into the Land of Boobs (as I like to call my work community). This may give some insight for those of you who would be interested in a similar career but will, more importantly, hopefully raise your awareness of some of the issues that I faced. I'm going to split my blog into 2 parts: One talking about my background; and one dealing more specifically with infant feeding.

So, without further ado, this is the background story to my amazing job. It is a slightly unusual story in that I came to it from a pretty unusual starting point - complete blank terror and revulsion.
