What is an IBCLC?
An IBCLC has the most experience and training...
IBCLC stands for International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. An IBCLC is the highest level breastfeeding professional you can find anywhere in the world. The term "Lactation Consultant" is not used by IBCLCs alone. There are other certifications like CBE, CBS, CLC, CLE which are limited in their scope of practice. It is an important distinction to make because in Los Angeles you can hire an IBCLC for the same price you would pay for someone with a much lesser credential. Here is a quick breakdown of the differences between credentials:
