This was an unusual case, but I will just throw it out there. I don't remember her name, but when I was at a midwifery conference at Monterey last year, one of the speaker was a medical historian. She had a PhD in Medical History, and her doctoral research was in history of breastfeeding. She taught history of breastfeeding and general breastfeeding information class to interns and residents at a medical school! She said most of her colleagues didn't even know she was not an MD and teaching classes at a medical school. They just assumed she's an MD, because she's a "doctor".
Just throwing it out there, since you said you enjoy reading about research, promoting breastfeeding with classes and programs. If you did what she did, then you will be impacting many OBs or Pediatricians at a time, which can impact so many babies and mamas.
