Community Breastfeeding Counselor

Get the Training, Help Your Community

Join us in our mission to bring breastfeeding support to everyone in every community!

This 20 hour training will equip you to lead breastfeeding support groups and be a first contact for women in your community who are struggling with breastfeeding.

This training will cover counseling skills, trauma informed care, affects of social disadvantage, history of breastfeeding, benefits of breastfeeding, breast anatomy, hormonal pathways, helping with latch, basic breastfeeding troubleshooting, biologically normal baby behavior, caring for a newborn, bottle feeding support, pumping information, professional partnerships, and making referrals.

This training has been approved for 16 L-Cerps and 2 R-Cerps by IBLCE and We have been officially recognition by IBLCE as a peer counselor organization so that this training and your work as a Community Breastfeeding Counselor will go towards certification as an IBCLC, should you choose that path in the future.

Although this training will give you the knowledge and skills to begin volunteering in your community and improving breastfeeding rates, it is will not give you the ability to become an independent care provider.

There is NO FEE for this training!
