:( I am sad to report that Ravenswood Family Practice (home of no-vax friendly Dr. Mariela Cano) no longer offers lactation services :(

 

I called the IBCLC's number (her name is Jo Ann Allen, if anyone can find her i'll give you an e-hug, lol) and there was a recording that said they no longer offer lactation services but that their doctors would be more than happy to answer any breastfeeding q's and concerns.

 

This makes me so sad :(  Jo Ann was awesome, she helped me with our horrible latch during the early days and with a nipple bleb at around 7mos.  I called because a friend had a question. 

 

Jo Ann did give me her cell phone number but I lost it :( Waaaah.

 

Okay, crying and rant over.  No more IBCLC @ RFP.  *sniff*.

 

But Dr. Cano is still awesome and did not in any way shape or form even mention vaxing @ our 12mo appt :)

I met Patricia Berg Drazin IBCLC RLC and she was really great.  She is very holistic-minded, may be able to help you out.
