Lactation Services

Specialist who support your parenting intuition

The International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) certifies lactation consultants who meet its criteria and have passed its exam. Healthy Children Project, Inc. certifies lactation counselors. Both Lactation Consultants and Lactation Counselors support new mothers by solving certain breastfeeding difficulties such as sore nipples and low milk supply. Studies show that patients connected with qualified Lactation Professionals are three times more likely to be exclusively breastfeeding at three months, more likely to be exclusively breastfeeding at one month and less likely to wean in the first six months. Although babies benefit from any breast milk they receive, there is increasing evidence that exclusive breastfeeding supports a healthy microbiome and imparts important, lifelong health benefits for both mothers and infants including a reduced rate of infections in newborns.
