Lactation Consultant

Many women experience difficulty when breastfeeding, particularly during the initial first weeks. With the proper support, education and time most issues can be overcome, and breastfeeding can be a satisfying, healthy experience for mother and baby.

An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant or IBCLC is a health care professional that specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding.  An IBCLC provides the care and support that every nursing mother deserves–and to help her meet her breastfeeding goals.
