Paola Rueda (Colombia): For me, free access to the Journal of Human Lactation is the most valuable benefit of ILCA membership! Webinars and free CERPs are also a great opportunity to stay up-to-date in breastfeeding medicine. I love having a big community, doing all this great work, just like me!

Doreen Freeman Conner (USA): Working in a large, urban, high-risk obstetrics practice, ILCA membership keeps me up-to-date with the newest information and research. I am able to share this with other lactation professionals along with staff nurses and physicians. It helps me change our practice to help our mothers meet their breastfeeding goals.

Andini Yulina Pramono (Indonesia): I joined ILCA for the first time in 2015 and would love to continue as a member. I love getting the Journal of Human Lactation. It is very informative and was very helpful as I sat for my IBCLC exam this year. Thank you!
