Deeper Dive into Screening for PMADs with Desiree Israel
Lactation Business Coaching
Screening for perinatal mood disorders is a vital skill set for IBCLCs, but it's not enough to hand over a form or ask some questions. You need to know what steps to take if you really want your families to get help and healing. We're asking Desirée Israel, LCSW-C, LICSW, LCSW, CBS to guide us in a deeper understanding of our role in supporting mental health in pregnant and postpartum families.

Leah Jolly IBCLC + Annie Frisbie MA, IBCLC
We know that where there’s community, there’s power - and we wanted a place where lactation business owners could join in on authentic and candid conversations about what running a business in our industry really looked like.
If you’ve been looking for a place that doesn't feel like another “boss babe” business networking event, but instead a true connection with other lactation consultants cheering you on while offering their help and experience, our Deeper Dives are for you.
