We believe that International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®) membership gives you what you need to provide the best breastfeeding support. But don’t trust us – listen to your fellow members! We reached out to members from all over the world and asked them to finish the following sentence:
I am an ILCA member because…
I want mothers to receive up-to-date, accurate information from me when I see them, and I want to support the organization that supports my practice.
Let me count the ways! 10 CERPS per year! Free advertising with the Find a Lactation Consultant Directory! The Journal of Human Lactation! Inside Tracks! To show my pride in my profession and the strength in our international community!
Because as an IBCLC in private practice, it is really important to me to be part of the larger IBCLC community.
It keeps me connected to IBCLCs around the world and keeps me current and connected.
My international professional association provides me access to excellent research and professional development opportunities. As an IBCLC, I am proud that ILCA has a broad public health vision “World health transformed through breastfeeding and skilled lactation care” and has organizational values of knowledge, diversity and equity.
I am a premie of the 1970’s who received the best possible care and the golden gift of breast milk from my mother and support from the health professionals. I grew up to be a maternity nurse by speciality with passion to be with mothers and babies.
ILCA gives you what you need to provide the best breastfeeding support.
