Lactation Education Training


Are you passionate about helping lactating parents on their breastfeeding journey?

If so, consider becoming a certified lactation educator! Lactation consultants help breastfeeding parents and their infants achieve the best breastfeeding experience possible.

They provide in-person and online support, advice on latching, and guidance on solving any breastfeeding issues that may arise. Becoming a lactation consultant is a great way to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

It’s also a very rewarding career, and a great addition to your birth or postpartum business.
