Breastfeeding Training Resources

Numerous titles are given to persons who typically work in health care and 
public health settings who take 15 to 45 hour courses in various training
 programs and certifications whose training equips them with basic knowledge of
 lactation support. Breastfeeding problems beyond the skill level of
 these providers are referred to the the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBCLE). The IBCLE is valued worldwide as a trusted source for certifying practitioners in lactation and breastfeeding care..

 skills, knowledge, and attitudes to provide quality breastfeeding assistance to
 babies and mothers. IBCLCs specialize in the clinical management of 
breastfeeding which includes: preventive health care, patient education, nutrition
 counseling, and therapeutic treatment. Go to The International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA) to find a lactation consultant near you.
