We are an inclusive community initiative transforming Black and Brown communities by empowering people of color to become certified lactation counselors and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC’s) We believe human milk is a necessity for Black and Brown human babies to reduce infant mortality rates whether through breastfeeding, chest-feeding or body-feeding support.
There is currently less than 2% of lactation consultants of color in the US. IBCLC’s of color are needed to mitigate low breastfeeding disparities with black and brown families. This group will discuss the pathways offered, courses required, provide volunteering resources, tips, study sessions and more. We encourage you to connect with other aspiring/present IBCLC group members to garner the support needed during your journey.
