New video segment - not included in your birth education DVDs ...

What is an LC?

An IBCLC or LC is a lactation consultant- a breastfeeding expert. 

On our birth education DVDs, Leanne Cummins speaks about preparing to breastfeed, and how to get started in your new role.  In this interview (6mins), Lynne Hall discusses what a lactation consultant offers, and talks about when you might call on one.

To be qualified as an IBCLC candidates must demonstrate that they already have extensive education & clinical experience working with breastfeeding mothers, and then pass an exam which qualifies them for a period of 5 years.  Often lactation consultants have also been (or still are) Australian Breastfeeding Association counsellors, midwives, GP's, or mothercraft nurses as well.

Lynne Hall runs Better Beginnings whose mission is to support a new parent's transition into parenthood, focussing on supporting the family to make choices and have options with breastfeeding in Sydney.

Leanne has also written an eBook called Breastfeeding Basics to compliment the information she presents in the DVDs. The booklet answers many breastfeeding questions Leanne has been asked as a Lactation Consultant, and offers links for further information.
