Free Education on Lactation!
I am on the faculty at International Breastfeeding Institute, the lactation school of the International Doula Institute. I was a CBC before I became an IBCLC.
To become an IBCLC there are 3 PATHWAYS. All 3 PATHWAYS require 14 college levels classes, 95 hours of lactation specific education and clinical contact hours. Once those pieces are complete, you take an international exam.
It's a great place to start increasing your knowledge base in lactation and giving back to your community. My 45 hours course is SUPER FUN! Once that is complete at IBI I also offer an Advanced Lactation Course worth 50 CERPS for the deep dive with me on becoming an IBCLC.
The CBC Course - Our Core Course - is open for everyone, is 100% online and worth 45 CERPS - also known as Continuing Education Recognition Points - towards all 3 PATHWAYS to becoming an IBCLC.

When the Affordable Care act rolled out, lactation support and supplies are now considered elements of Preventative Care. Birthing people today can receive an electric breast pump with an OBGYN script for Diagnosis code Z39.1 Encounter with Lactating Person and E0603 Electric Breast Pump.
I have a series of webinars AND a Crash Course for Insurance billing co-authored with Annie Frisbee, IBCLC. Use this link to check it all out:
