The USBC has also created an #NBM20 social media toolkit with sample posts and shareable graphics. Share and join in the conversation!

Congratulations New IBCLCs!

Did you Certify or Recertify in 2019 or 2020?
Let us know!

IBLCE does not share the names of new certificants with the professional organizations. Take a moment to let us know if you're recently IBCLC certified or recertified by emailing info@klicbreastfeeding.org.  If you are a resident of Kentucky or Southern Indiana, we'd like to recognize your achievement.

Also, if you achieved another lactation certificate, such as CLC, CLS, or CLE, please let us know. These companies do not share the names of their graduates with us either.

Consider joining KLIC, your professional association! See the info above
