Topic:  Early Breastfeeding Issues:  We’ll talk about early breastfeeding issues like engorgement, mastitis, and positioning.   Will also discuss positioning issues and myths and misconceptions for larger-breasted women.

Featured Expert*:   Danielle Rigg, CLC of www.bestforbabes.org:  Danielle, @Bestforbabes_dr,  is the Co-Founder & COO of the Best for Babes Foundation  (@BestforBabes) and is a mom of two children.  Galvanized by her own breastfeeding struggles, Danielle became a certified lactation counselor (CLC) and ran a successful lactation counseling practice and breastfeeding support group in Montclair New Jersey.   I call her the “boob whisperer” because of her natural talent in getting babies on to the breast while boosting a mother’s confidence and know-how.    Since losing her breasts to cancer, Danielle has been more motivated than ever to help moms breastfeed successfully and reap the long-term health benefits.  SHAPE magazine featured her in their November Issue as one of ten “Women Who Shape the World” along with Michelle Obama!   *Conversations on twitter are in no way intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition and are not a substitute for an in-person evaluation by a qualified, independent Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) or your breastfeeding-knowledgeable physician.
