Are you a lactation consultant?

What did you go to school for in order to become one? Do you like it? I want to become a lactation consultant but I don't know where to start.

  • Here's a great place to start!

    You can go from there and explore their site to find out how to become board-certified.  =)

    I'm planning on doing it too, as I'm studying to be a certified nurse-midwife, so I already have most of the prerequisites.  I'm also a lactation specialist.

  • I am a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor for the AR WIC program. Lots of the other PC's I work with are actually lactation consultants. Look into if ur state offers this job as it can be a great way to paving the way.
