We want you to succeed in lactation private practice.

Lactation Business Coaching is a joint venture of Annie Frisbie IBCLC and Leah Jolly IBCLC providing coaching, training, mentoring, and resources for private practice lactation consultants who are IBCLCs or on the path to becoming IBCLCs. Our podcast for lactation professionals covers topics like imposter syndrome, burnout, charting and reporting, financial management, and other issues of interest for lactation consultants who are also small business owners.

Combining Annie's knack for tech, Leah's enthusiasm for marketing, and their shared love of lactation science and ethical entrepreneurship, each episode gives listeners inspiration, recommendations, and specific steps to take to create their own compassionate and professional private practice.

Annie and Leah also offer conference and workshop presentations on private practice topics.
