The Lactation Private Practice Toolkit is right for you if:

  • You have a feeling you’re not as organized as you could be, but have no idea where to start.

  • You’ve been at this for awhile, but your disorganization has you feeling burned out.

  • You’re scaling rapidly and worried you can’t keep up because your systems are inefficient.

  • You’re spending way too much time on charting, or your pediatrician reports, and you’re either staying up way too late or getting up way too early. Or worse—you’re cutting corners. Or not doing them at all.

  • You didn’t pay enough attention to HIPAA and you know you’re not as secure as you need to be, but the idea of tackling it feels just way too overwhelming so you ignore it.

  • You know you have what it takes for lactation private practice and want to do things right.

  • You know you can make improvements and need some guidance.

  • You’re ready to make your private practice work for you.

The Lactation Private Practice Toolkit is not right for you if you don’t plan to charge for your services, or feel 100% confident in your policies and procedure, or have no insecurities about the tech tools you’re currently using.
