What’s an IBCLC?
An IBCLC is an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant, a healthcare professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. An IBCLC has completed required coursework and passed an international board certified examination.
IBCLCs have expert knowledge and experience in providing breastfeeding and lactation care in routine and high-risk situations.
Breastfeeding Peer Counselors.
Whether you’re pregnant, a new mom or have multiple kids, it helps to talk to other moms who know what you’re going through. That’s where Breastfeeding Peer Counselors (PCs) can help.
PCs are moms in your community who breastfed their own babies and can help you in your breastfeeding journey.
