3/ I am looking for an IBCLC that shares my cultural heritage. Can you help?
There are many barriers to becoming an IBCLC in the UK particularly when you are from a global majority group.
I strive to ensure that you are culturally safe in my care. However being supported by someone who shares your lived experience is a right.
