Why choose an IBCLC?


The International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is the only internationally recognized credential in breastfeeding support. I was required to provide documentation of my lactation training and 1000 hours of clinical experience with breastfeeding mothers to  be eligible to take the certification exam. IBCLCs must re-certify through extensive continuing education every five years and must retake the certification exam.
