Additional Questions?

If you have any other questions regarding breastfeeding, or would like to communicate one-on-one with a professional, you might want to contact a lactation consultant.  An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is a health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. IBCLCs are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, Inc. (www.iblce.org) under the direction of the U.S. National Commission for Certifying Agencies. IBCLCs work in a wide variety of health care settings, including hospitals, pediatric offices, public health clinics, and private practice.

There are many located around the country and close to you in your state.  If you have any questions, these are the people that you can contact if you want more in-depth help when it comes to breastfeeding, or any additional questions that you may have.  The website for the International Lactation Consultant Association can help you not only to be connected with a lactation consultant, but can also answer more questions about what they do, and how you can donate to support the cause.  Check out the website and get the help that you need!
