What is an IBCLC?

An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) is a health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. IBCLC certificants are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE®) by passing a rigorous examination. The examination program is accredited by the U.S. National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). IBCLC certificants work in a wide variety of health care settings including hospitals, pediatric offices, public health clinics, and private practice.
