Happy IBCLC Day March 7, 2018!

Happy IBCLC Day March 7, 2018!

There are approximately 160 International Board Certified Lactation Consultants  (IBCLCs) in KY, and many others in southern Indiana, the Greater Cincinnati area, and other communities bordering Kentucky.

Although most IBCLCs work in hospitals, others work in health departments, physician’s offices, or their own private lactation consulting practice. They provide families with prenatal counseling in OB offices, childbirth education classes, and prenatal breastfeeding classes; immediate help in learning breastfeeding after the birth of the baby; and on-going help and problem-solving as breastfeeding continues and the baby grows.

IBCLC Day is organized by the International Lactation Consultant Association. For more information, visit ILCA's IBCLC Day page at http://www.ilca.org/why-ibclc/ibclc-day. You can download materials to share through social media, join their Facebook Event for March 7, and get further information about how IBCLCs make a difference.

KLIC also recognizes the contributions of other lactation counselors, including Certified Lactation Counselors, Certified Lactation Educators, WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselors, La Leche League Leaders, and others who support and educate breastfeeding families.
