Currently, occupational stressors and burnout are at an all-time high. Lactation professionals are not immune to this phenomenon. Lactation professionals often work in very demanding and stressful environments. They are very skilled at caring for their clients. They adeptly help new mothers learn to nourish their babies; however, they often lack prioritizing self care to enhance their own health and mental wellbeing. Overtime, stressors that are not addressed, can cause unhappiness and stress related diseases in the body. This presentation was created to bring awareness to the levels and causation of stressors, find better balance in the workplace, and to create an individualized care plan to bring more harmony and wellness to ultimately avoid occupational burnout.
