We here, at Nursing Bra Express, try to provide as much information about breastfeeding as possible, to put you at ease and comfort you while breastfeeding (or learning to breastfeed!) your baby. Thanks to the help of “Our Expert” Veronica Tingzon, IBCLC, we have a brilliant collection of articles and videos to help you master the art of breastfeeding.
However, sometimes you will need help of a lactation consultant to personally assist you with the trials and tribulations of breastfeeding that you may encounter. Many lactation consultants will meet with you in the comfort of your own home, or at a nearby office or hospital to make sure you and your baby have the best breastfeeding experience possible.
What is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) Anyways?
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. under the direction of the US 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.*
