The editorial staff of Lactation Matters and ILCA would like to take a moment to thank you. Our first week in the blogosphere has been tremendous, full of excitement and new challenges. We are sincerely grateful for the outpouring of support that we have received with the launch of this blog. In one week we had over 2,000 visits and a number of wonderful commenters encouraging us along. This blog has been created for all of you, to create an ongoing source of community and support for our fellow LC’s.
At times it can be hard to remember how small the world really is, and how connected we are. While the facilities that we practice at may be different, we are all working towards the same mission. Our goal with Lactation Matters is create a safe and informative place that LC’s can gather and never feel alone in their profession again.
Quite an ambitious goal that we’ve set for ourselves, to ensure that this blog stays current and meeting your needs we want to encourage you to submit questions, comments, suggestions, and thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. This blog is your blog and we want to make sure that Lactation Consultants and healthcare professionals working with breastfeeding mothers around the world are having their voices heard. Stand as one, be united, and let us know what is happening in your own community.
We look forward to what the future holds for our ‘baby’ blog and watching how all of you connect and interact with us.
Again, thank you for subscribing, reading, and sharing. Stay tuned for some exciting posts next week and a poll coming your way this Friday!
