Why go it alone when community and collaboration can strengthen your skills and combat compassion fatigue? In this episode of the Lactation Business Coaching podcast, Annie & Leah share three ways you can grow your local connections and create more opportunities for all of you. From informal to formal, there’s something in here for everyone.

Key Takeaways

  • Show up and offer help. Volunteering with local lactation groups can boost your visibility and offer much-needed help

  • Not available? Informal referral networks connect separate private practice lactation consultants without any legal agreements.

  • Ready to make it official? Formal group practices have legal agreements in place and can be profitable for everyone


  • “Show up and ask what you can do to help.”

  • “I want all of us to make a living. How can we do that for each other?”

Annie’s Tech Tip

  • Separate consents for different types of clients

Leah’s Marketing Tip

  • Branding that will make you famous at the grocery store
