IBCLC® Day is Wednesday, 5 March 2014




Join us in celebrating IBCLC Day!

5 March marks IBCLC Day 2014. We’re taking this opportunity to thank the IBCLCs that have made a difference in our lives.

  • Are you a mother who was helped by an IBCLC?
  • Does an IBCLC in your hospital or community center make a difference in the lives of mothers and babies?
  • Is there an IBCLC in your community that ensures families receive up-to-date, evidence-based information?
  • Did an IBCLC mentor you this year?

Please take a moment on 5 March to say thank you to the IBCLCs in your community.


Here’s a few ways you can celebrate:

Start a conversation on Facebook, thanking your IBCLCs and encouraging others to do the same. Share one of these images in your message. [Image 1 | Image 2 | Image 3 | Image 4]
