Join Rachael and Lindsey Shipley of @lactationlink as they discuss Lindsey's journey as a mother of 3,  bed sharing and misinformation regarding bedsharing/  breastsleeping, SIDS, and the infant feeding & sleep industry at large.  Trigger warning: SIDS & Infant Death is discussed in this episode. Lindsey Shipley is an RN, Childbirth Educator, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, cancer survivor, and mom of 3.  After being a labor and delivery RN for 5 years, Lindsey saw too many moms feel scared and unsure when it came to breastfeeding.  She overheard lots of differing opinions and conversations on “the right way” or “the best way” to breastfeed.  It’s no wonder moms can feel overwhelmed and unsure.  Lindsey set out to change all that with Lactation Link!  When her second baby was six weeks old, she was diagnosed with cancer and went through two years of treatment.  With education and support, she was able to reach her own breastfeeding goals despite facing that challenge.  That experience made her passionate about creating a breastfeeding resource families knew they could trust when they experienced challenges of their own.  Through the Lactation Link online classes and support forum, she has created reliable, research-based information that is also easily accessible.  She is based in Utah, but her customer base is everywhere because of her online classes and e-consults.  Find Lindsey on IG at @lactationlinkLactation Link Courses here!Safe Infant Sleep by Professor James McKennaSafe Sleep Seven Guidelines hereRachael's Webinar on Safe Bed Sharing here!
