In today’s episode we are talking about Lactation Consultants! I had the honor of interviewing Courtney Miller who is an IBCLC. Courtney’s passion for breastfeeding began after giving birth to her son in March 2019, when she quickly realized there wasn’t enough breastfeeding education and support readily-available. Now she says she has found her calling of helping moms and their families along their breastfeeding journey! Courtney regularly uses her personal breastfeeding experience, along with evidence-based research, to help educate and support the families she works alongside.

In this episode we discuss:

  • IBCLC stands for: International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
  • CLC stands for: Certified Lactation Consultant
  • What the difference is between and IBCLC and a CLC
  • How Lactation Consultants can help
  • Where they help: in hospital vs in home/virtual
  • Free or low cost resources: support groups, WIC, La Leche League, Instagram
  • Seeking a Lactation Consultant even if you do not have problems, they can help with transitions, pumping, weaning, etc.
