What is an IBCLC?
@who The World Health Organization reports “that mothers require active support for establishing and sustaining breastfeeding.” Whether breastfeeding comes easily for you or not, having a strong support system is absolutely key to helping you meet your nursing goals.
While your partner, family and mom friends are there to cheer you on and pick you up when you’re feeling discouraged, no one is better prepared to help you with breastfeeding than an IBCLC, or International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
What does an IBCLC do?
IBCLCs are certified healthcare professionals trained in the clinical management of breastfeeding—AKA breastfeeding experts. Plus, they are internationally recognized. IBCLCs are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE).
In the words of Midwife Sandy (pictured): IBCLCs are important because they help, support and honor new parents journeys in breastfeeding.
Having an IBCLC has proven to improve breastfeeding outcomes and duration. They are trained professionals who are skilled in dealing with normal routine scenarios to complex high risk situations
Who needs an IBCLC?
EVERYONE, seriously. An IBCLC should be a key member of your and your baby's birth team, and a 𝐛𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐞𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐬 & consultation with Midwife Sandy @mymomglow should be commonplace. This is the new standard of care, moms.
Breastfeeding doesn’t always come easy or naturally as we would hope. Raising my hand over here as a veteran mama who breastfed my first for years & years (& years & years) but completely dried up only 2 months after my second. HOW I WISH I KNEW SANDY THEN. An IBCLC understands that breastfeeding isn't always easy and can address breastfeeding issues you have along the way, upon completing an assessment of you and your little one.
