New Friends: The Santa Barbara Birth Center

Back in December I was at a local tapas restaurant and overheard a large group of ladies talking about breasts and birth. I knew I had finally found people from my tribe in Santa Barbara. I introduced myself saying that I couldn't help but overhear what they were talking about. At first they looked concerned that I may have been offended by their discussions until I told them I was a Lactation Consultant. They laughed relieved and told me that they were from the Santa Barbara Birth Center. They were so sweet and kind and encouraged me to drop off some business cards... forward 3 months when I was invited there to present to a group of new doulas about initiating breastfeeding right after delivery and what to expect within the first 24 hours of life. 

I had such a great time getting to know these ladies and sharing my knowledge. I am truly looking forward to more collaboration in the future!!
