Episode 69: "It's a Sign of Strength to Ask For Help" With Lori J. Isenstadt of the All About Breastfeeding Podcast

Today I had so much fun chatting with Lori Jill Isenstadt of the All About Breastfeeding Podcast.  Lori is an internationally board certified lactation consultant and has spent much of her adult life working in the maternal health field. Once she became turned on to birth and became a childbirth educator, there was no stopping her love of working with families during their childbearing years.  Lori became a Birth doula and a Postpartum doula and soon became a lactation consultant.   Lori founded her private practice, All About Breastfeeding where she meets with moms one on one to help solve their breastfeeding challenges.  Her membership site, All About Mothering, which just launched on April 1st, 2017, helps moms navigate their journey from pregnancy through their postpartum days. She is an international speaker, book author and podcast host. Not to mention, she is mom to 3 grown children.  

In the episode we talk about:

  • The challenges of being a childbirth educator already when birthing her second child
  • How her career in birth work evolved over the years
  • Why she decided to start the All About Breastfeeding Podcast
  • The importance of educating society about breastfeeding

  • Her new educational membership website, All About Mothering
  • The importance of not comparing birth and postpartum stories
  • Her experience with polyhydramnios with her third baby

  • and More!
