1. What qualifications does a Lactation Consultant have?

The IBLCE (International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners) is a certification body that confers the credentials of IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) on members that pass the set exam. In order to be eligible to write the exam a person, usually a health professional, needs to have completed around 90 hours of lactation species education and up to 1000 hours of practical breastfeeding hours! Every 5 years the IBCLC will need to recertify to remain an IBCLC. After the first 5 years this is done by completing a specific number of education hours and after further 5 years the IBCLC will need to resit the exam. My next exam is due in 2019!
