FAQ

What is an IBCLC?

International Board Certified Lactation Consultants are the only internationally recognized health care professionals who specialize in lactation care.  IBCLCs must pass a rigorous examination that demonstrates the ability to provide knowledgeable, comprehensive lactation and breastfeeding care.
