Welcome to the ILCA IBCLC Day Celebration! IBCLC Day was developed to recognize the important role of the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® and the specialized knowledge each has to make a difference in the lives of breastfeeding mothers and babies. IBCLC Day is celebrated each year on the first Wednesday of March. This year's celebration will be held Wednesday, 4 March 2015.

Show Appreciation to the IBCLCs in Your Community
Consider hosting an event in your workplace or community. Present each IBCLC you work with with a special certificate of appreciation and/or a special gift. Take the opportunity to thank each IBCLC you know for the important work they do and encourage others to do the same.
