TESTIMONIALS: “I am thankful to have completed an online course for certification in breastfeeding counseling under the instruction of Donna Sinnott. I never met her in person and yet, feel I have. She communicates in a way that instills courage in her students. She is attentive and responsive, addressing any concerns immediately. I really appreciated that. Her course and required text are comprehensive and graspable, providing current, evidence-based information, as well as opportunities to practice counseling breastfeeding moms. Donna is an inspiration. She is genuine, modest, very knowledgeable and accomplished in her field. I highly recommend her as an instructor and hope to have the privilege of learning more from her in the future. ~ Testimonial from CBC graduate Zina W. Summer 2021
“I took both Certified Breastfeeding Counselor & Advanced Lactation courses. Having a college degree & a few other certifications, I have had many classes in my life and I have to say, I enjoyed these two courses more than any I ever have! After receiving my certificates, I started my own business and have counseled around 20 women so far. Through the notes and additional resources Donna provided in the courses, I have felt well prepared in helping these mamas (or mamas to be). It is apparent the time & effort that went into putting the course material together. I have always felt that I get more out of in-person classes, but I have learned more from these courses than any class I have ever taken. Even though it was online, Donna was readily available anytime I had questions, providing in-depth answers and explanations. Highly recommend these courses with Donna!” ~ Testimonial from graduate Jordan S. February 2022
