WHAT IS AN INTERNATIONAL BOARD CERTIFIED LACTATION CONSULTANT (IBCLC)?
An IBCLC is a healthcare professional specializing in the clinical management of breastfeeding and lactation. IBCLCs are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners under the direction of the U.S. National Commission for Certifying Agencies. IBCLCs work in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, pediatric offices, public health clinics, and private practice, where care is provided in your home or the consultant's office in the community. Learn more on our What is an IBCLC? page.
