Sorry to respond late on this, but I'm going to go with awesome. My wife is a breast feeding support midwife and freelance lactation consultant. I always thought her job was pretty cool to start with (stressful, but cool. Couple of days ago she delivered a baby within 5 min of getting into work, in a corridor just outside the lifts. She didn't have time to get her coat off).
However, I now can't wait for her to wake up to tell her she's a lactivist. It sounds like a really specialist branch of the special forces. Can I get her a black jump suit and a balaklava?
