International Board Certified Lactation Consultant Day

March 06, 2018

2018 IBCLC Day SquareInternational Board Certified Lactation Consultant Day is March 7! Why see a lactation consultant? Women can be concerned about whether they’re making enough milk, they may have feeding challenges or they may need help making breastfeeding more comfortable. They also may need advice coming up with a plan to pump when they return to work.

Maine Medical Center has a team of 13 lactation consultants. All lactation consultants at MMC are International Board Certified Lactation Consultants certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE). IBLCE establishes the highest standards in lactation and breastfeeding care worldwide and certifies individuals who meet these standards.

The lactation consultants at Maine Medical Center serve inpatient families during the day every day and also have outpatient appointments available. You can make an outpatient appointment with a lactation consultant at MMC, even if you didn’t deliver here.
