  • A desire to help mothers and babies: Lactation consultants work with mothers who are breastfeeding or want to breastfeed to provide support and education. This can be a rewarding experience, as lactation consultants can help mothers and babies achieve successful breastfeeding and overcome challenges.
  • A passion for women's health: Lactation consultants often work in the field of women's health and may be passionate about helping women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.
  • A desire to work with a diverse population: Lactation consultants may work with a diverse group of mothers, including those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or returning to work after childbirth.
  • A desire for flexibility: Many lactation consultants are self-employed or work as contractors, which can provide a flexible schedule and the ability to work from home or remotely.
