Breastfeeding Health Literacy Survey and Questionnaire

Things are going great in our neck of the woods! How about you?

We are all working hard to get the public supported and educated on birth breastfeeding and more. One of our ladies is part of a food bank that just got started. She will hopefully soon start work on a diaper bank that will include classes on how to use and make cloth diapers!

I’ve been observing birthing classes in preparation to begin some pregnancy and birth classes in the future. That’s something I really want to get started but worry about my adequacy in teaching. I had some pretty quick births and I will have to learn a lot of things that need to be used or may be wanted during longer births.

I do need some help from you all out there, though. I’m trying to do a a quick “Breastfeeding Basics in Less Than 30 minutes” series. We will be starting the class as part of our breastfeeding support group for the Greater Valley area. We will do it once a month for 4-6 weeks. The key to making this work is focusing on the information that is needed most during those quick 30min, or less, lessons. You can help me out by filling out out this survey and then sharing it. Thank you so much for helping!


About Blessed Are The Mothers

My name is Lisa Horstkamp and I am a private practice lactation counselor and a Birth and bereavement Doula. I became a certified doula with stillbirthday as of October 2015. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) with The Healthy Children Project of April 2015. CLC Scope of practice: SBD Doula Principles of Service (Scope) I'm a southern woman born and bred. I am raising my "Southern Bell" and "bubba" the way I see fit. I started out breastfeeding my oldest but without good support I ended up using formula and not meeting my breastfeeding goal. I breastfed my youngest for 33 months, until he no longer requested, far out reaching my original goal of 6 months. It would not have been possible without the abundant support from my IBCLC and other breastfeeding moms in the support group at our local hospital. I'm on path to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in the next few years and looking forward to increasing support for my area.
