Happy IBCLC Day!

IBCLC dayTHIS IS YOUR DAY!  This year’s slogan is “Connect with IBCLCs, the Experts in Breastfeeding Care” and it supports ILCA’s vision that the IBCLC is the globally recognized professional authority in lactation by highlighting the extensive expertise that IBCLCs provide breastfeeding mothers and babies to help them reach their breastfeeding goals.

Not only is IBCLC Day intended to recognize and celebrate the value of IBCLCs, it is also serves as an opportunity to educate employers, mothers and other healthcare providers of the extensive training IBCLCs have completed and maintain through continuing study that makes them uniquely qualified to provide current, evidence based support to breastfeeding families.

In celebration of this day, we’ll be highlighting how IBCLCs impact their communities in a series of posts over the next several days. Please join us in every day for the rest of the week as we celebrate IBCLCs!

Here are some great “freebies” to help you celebrate!

As always, and especially today, we appreciate all you do as an IBCLC in your communities!

    IBCLC Day! The first Wednesday in March we honor ourselves and our colleagues who practice (or aspire to practice) as International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. IBCLCs empower mothers and save babies lives. IBCLC is the essential credential in lactation support. IBCLCs practice an *evidence-based* profession that was borne from the wisdom of mothers.

    Like professionals in the fields of birthing, counseling, nutrition, medicine, parenting/attachment, public health, mental health, physical and speech therapies, feminism, social work [etc etc], we rely on evidence-based practice … but our mission is to deliver mother-centered care and support. Ours is a profession that requires a little bit of skill from all of these fields, in the work we do with mothers and families.
