Pediatrician reports—why bother?

It’s so important for IBCLCs to be seen as part of the care team for the breastfeeding families we serve. One way we can impact our presence in the care team is to communicate with the other providers working with the breastfeeding family. Today we will discuss what we need to send to the other providers on the care team as well as strategies to make this process effective and efficient.

So if you struggle with motivating yourself to write and send pediatrician reports, or if you’re wondering if anyone even reads them, you’re not alone. Leah Jolly IBCLC and Annie Frisbie IBCLC have both been there and been frustrated by that, and in this episode of the Lactation Business Coaching Podcast we’ve got some ideas for you on how to get them done and get them read. We’re talking what to write, how to send, and why they’re so important.
