The IBCLC Care Awards have been announced! Congratulations to the Community-Based Care Award and Hospital-Based Facility recipients!
What are the IBCLC Care Awards?
Hospital-Based Facilities and Community-Based Health Agencies that staff currently certified International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) certificants, host dedicated lactation support programs, and have completed specific projects promoting breastfeeding, can apply online to become a recognized IBCLC Care Award facility and be included in the IBCLC Care Directory.
The IBCLC Care Awards are promoted to new families and the general public which means Care Award facilities can enjoy the benefits of positive public relations in your community, including:
- Enhanced attractiveness to potential patients
- Competitive edge in recruiting lactation consultants, nurses, midwives, mother support counselors and other medical staff
- General good will in the community by providing excellent care in helping new families reach their breastfeeding goals
