IBCLCs and erosion of mother-to-mother help

leave a comment »

One of the most difficult things in research is collecting evidence to prove your theory or prognosis of the course of events that will take place. I have initiated the discussion on the effect of IBCLC licensure on LactNet and within LLL many times with many different groups of people. Very few have enough liberal arts education to connect the dots between the events take place today in the world of breastfeeding support and the history that we saw a century ago with erosion of midwifery in favor of obstetrics and its effect on women.

The other day I got very lucky. One of the people who is aware of my interest sent me a discussion where a group of IBCLCs were curtailing the kind of help LLL Leaders can deliver to mothers. In the large scheme of things it does not matter to anybody or will change anything. History has a funny way of telling itself through the eyes of the “winners”. Yet here I am bearing witness, collecting, and preserving evidence of suppression of woman-to-woman support in favor of powered by the most influential system of mass control of women medicalized IBCLC model of help. The IBCLCs violating LLLI clauses of non-mixing causes thrive within the organization. Nobody calls them to the rules of the organization and allows broad daylight slow killing of the organization that gave birth to IBCLCs as a group. We cannot help but recall so many Greek myths where children kill their parents.
