Breastfeeding Educator Certification
Feel confident answering all your client’s breastfeeding questions!
Inspired by the World Health Organization’s 20 hour breastfeeding course, this ONLINE certification gets you ready for all the questions you will get as a birth and parenting professional. This training is ideal for prenatal & postpartum fitness experts, doulas, childbirth educators, sleep educators, massage therapists, nurses, and anyone else that is working with expecting and new parents.
This course may also provide some inspiration and direction to those interested in pursuing a pathway to become an IBCLC, however, this course is in no way connected to the IBLCE.
